They find their place in various styles of living environments.

Tefal

Tefal owes its origins to a Frenchman, Marc Grégoire, and his wife, Colette. M. Grégoire, a keen fisherman, wanted to make his rod reel in more smoothly and, in the 1950's, experimented to see if a non stick coating might provide the answer. It did! But it was his wife who made the real breakthrough by gently suggesting that coating the cooking pans would have a more worthwhile application by making them easier to cook with and simpler to clean. Now, Tefal is the number one name in non-stick products and small appliances, operating in over 120 countries. Tefal remains committed to making household tasks easier and cooking results better, through a constant flow of new ideas and technology.

    I've had Tefal steamers for many years, and a big fan - but not of this steamer. My thoughts are: basket 1 does not fit quickly and well onto the base and it requires a "click" to fix into position, the baskets (in comparison to my previous machines) are made of a lesser quality plastic and with the "click" action required, could break easily. As there is no outside refill system, this creates a problem when the food is cooking and the machine is steaming and very hot, and trying to balance the baskets on the drip tray whilst filling the water reserve is dangerous. Then you again had to try and locate the "click" from basket to base. The machine is also much slower than my previous machines - they had the booster buttons. My recommendation would still be to buy Tefal - just not this model.

    This is my fourth Tefal steamer, and the best so far by a long way. The keep warm feature is very useful, and the way the baskets stack makes it very compact for storage. Using this excellent steamer produces fail-safe and healthy cooking and I would not wish to be without it - it is in use almost every day in our household.The loose base in the baskets make washing-up no problem and the oval shape more roomy than the old round ones.Fully recommended.

    This is a good value steamer that does what it's made for!

    The keep warm feature can cause you to overcook your veggies, so best not used for any length of time.

    The 3 stacking units neatly fit inside each other when stored away, so takes up little space.

    Quality product, no complaints at all and is my second Tefal veggie steamer.

    This steamer looks attractive on my worktop, I didnt want a white one I wanted a chrome one to go with my cooker.
    When its not being used it stores away very compactly in the cupboard if you stack the tiers in a certain way.

    It makes a ding noise when the cooking is done but if you can't eat or get to the steamer straight away the steamer has a keep warm function which automatically then keeps the food warm when the cooking time is over.

    Also you can use 1 2 or 3 tiers at a time so if you are only cooking for one person you can just use 1 or two tiers.

    It comes with a rice bowl and i'd recommend this steamer.

    a bit pricy for a steamer, but does the job well used on a nearly daily basis looks tidy in the corner of our kitchen work top, it compares, well with previous tefal steamers we have bought if you want a good job well done go for it!

    I resisted buying an electric steamer for ages simply because they are so big and storage could be a problem. I wish I'd purchased this one years ago! Easy to use, efficient and tidy to store. Love it !!

    This steamer is fantastic and lives up to all my expectations, a very fine piece of equipment. Love the fact that it collapses into a third of it's size for easy storage. Highly recommended.

    This was a replacement for my old Tefal steamer/slow cooker (but I never liked the slow cooker, so didn't use it). My old steamer took up so much space, but this one - wow - it all stacks together and has given me much more space to fill! The steamer itself is great and easy to use. Just remember to check the numbers on the bowls - if you get them the wrong way around as I did the first time I used it, you may find that when you put the second bowl on top of the first it slots inside instead of sitting on top - oops! The removeable bases are a bit fiddly, just as others have said, but not enough to put anyone off buying it for that reason alone. I find that by gently pulling the sides apart the base is easier to slot in. There is a keep warm function, check the amendment to the instructions first and set this function AFTER the cooking has started. A great buy - and check out the book Steaming which has opened my eyes to steamer cooking!Steaming!
