Good for the price, but watch out for the timer,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Russell Hobbs Food Collection 14453 7 L Capacity Compact Steamer in Brushed Stainless Steel (Kitchen & Home)For the current bargain price of under £10 on Amazon, definitely worth ordering. But watch out for the timer device. It's a really flimsy clockwork spring - I'm now on my second one, having had to return the first one to Amazon as the timer wouldn't work. Unfortunately, the problem is exactly the same on the replacement one, so it's obviously a design flaw. To use this steamer, you will need to set a separate kitchen timer as well, to make sure you don't overcook or let it boil dry. Sometimes the timer works, sometimes it doesn't so you can't rely on it. Worth the hassle in my opinion at such a bargain price, as it cooks very well - I wouldn't pay more than £10, though. If you'd rather not mess about with setting a timer separately, then pay more for a model with a better timing device.
