Good but not great
on 7 June 2010
I bought this steamer 5 months ago and I have used it several times.
Pros: The whole meal finishes at the same time.
Three different compartments for different types of food.
Food tastes really good without the need of adding fat
Once food is put in place, you can relax until the food is ready
Cons: The time you save while cooking you will spend it cleaning this product. Unless you have a dishwasher, stay away from this steamer, it takes forever to clean this plastic containers, it's almost the equivalent of washing 5 pots with their lids.
If you don't use aluminium foil to cook kitchen pieces, the juice container will be full and the juices will drop into the water container that will start to burn and smell very bad. Also if you don't use aluminium foil to cook fish or other meats it will take you forever to clean the product.
The containers are not sturdy, so if you drop them, they will break.
At the end, I'm not tha disappointed, but I will the materials will be more sturdy and that it will be easier to clean. The idea of cleaning the machine after using it makes me think twice before using it. If you buy it, it helps to put all the containers to soak on hot and soapy water to clean them, the instructions say to use warm water, but you will need very hot water to clean those plastic containers.
