Great for the inexperienced cook,
This review is from: Morphy Richards Intellisteam 48780 Food Steamer (Kitchen & Home)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I had been meaning to get a steamer for ages but was put off by my inexperience at timing how long different items would take to cook in one, so was excited to hear of this one with its preset timers which make it fairly idiot-proof - with just a few button presses you can coordinate a whole meal brilliantly, and don't end up with cold peas while your broccoli is still cooking, for example... It is also fab at cooking rice, and you can even do sauces, pasta etc in it all at the same time (and timed to perfection) since there are multiple sections, so there's no need to have several pans going at once. You can even "boil" eggs in it!
As other reviewers have said, it would have been more aesthetically pleasing had they upgraded the plastic material to stainless steel, but then again that would probably bump up the price rather a lot, and mine hasn't accrued any damage as yet.
Obviously if you're a major fan of cooking then there are better ways of preparing meals, but if you're hopeless in the kitchen like me then this is a brilliant machine, and I recommend it highly.
