I love it. Flatter is better with Sistema,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sistema Large Microwave Plate with Removable Poaching/Cooking Tray - 1.3 L, Red/Clear (Kitchen & Home)
I have quite a few of these Sistema products. I've been reluctant to review the deeper ones because I always take the plastic tray out which comes with them. The tray is supposed to be the science behind the steam cooking, but I don't want extra washing up of hard to reach lines and crannies, so I take it out.
But with the flatter models, without the tray, these things cook brilliantly and evenly. I like to microwave jar sauces (curry, chinese etc) with frozen veg, and frozen prawns added. I freeze the contents the night before, and take them to work for night shifts. 10 minutes in the microwave, a quick stir and another 5 minutes, and a decent meal on the go is piping hot
If anyone is in the office late, they instantly are drawn to the smell and are envious of what you're eating, like I've prepared a great dish. All I've done is added ingredients which cost about 2 pounds, and makes for a better night shift over putting 2 pounds in a vending machine on crisps chocolate and cans (or takeaway)
I do have a 3 litre Sistema plate, but the depth and the distance of the food to lid, mean it becomes a chore trying to get everything even. I know I don't use the aided plastic tray, but with the flatter models, you really feel that the heat is trapped over a wider area and is properly pressure cooking your meal
