Very Impressive Steamer
At first, all I thought about steamed food was that it would be watery and bland. Boy, was I wrong! When I got the Hamilton Beach steamer, it came in an attractive and informative box. It had good information on it. Like I said, I was hesitant about using a steamer, but when I started to put it together and reading about it in the enclosed pamphlet, I got really interested. At first I thought I'd try to cook rice in it because good rice is hard to make. If you don't have a rice cooker, it can turn out to be too sticky or even crunchy. I don't think I know anyone who likes crunchy rice. My video captures the first time I tried the steamer and the first rice I cooked with it. I was very impressed. All I did was fill up the steamer with water, put the rice and water in the rice container and set the time for 32 minutes. The results were amazing. My husband, who is a rice aficionado, simply loved the rice. Even I thought that the rice was excellent without adding anything to it except maybe some light salt. Very good rice because it was cooked evenly and separated easily instead of sticking together in clumps. Then I thought I'd try to steam some eggs. Eggs?? Whoever would steam eggs? But I tried it anyway. I put eight large eggs into the tray which has little bowl-like indents on the bottom so you can stand the eggs up in them. Then I filled the water reservoir again to the max and steamed the eggs for 22 minutes. Those eggs were amazing! The yolks were not hard, but rather had a light, almost creamy texture even though they were thoroughly hard boiled. This is an excellent steamer because it works well. I would definitely recommend it to a friend..Chary73
Time Saver
I received this product for free in exchange for my honest opinion through the Spark Reviewer Program. I have been checking out this steamer for some time now. And the fact that my mom has one. At first I didn't see any use at all for the item but now, I stay on the go with all my children activities, this really came in hand. It is very easy to put together and washing it is easy as well. There are so many different things you can cook in this steamer. Only thing I do not like about this steamer is the timer does not go pass an hour. I am not really sure why that is but it stops at 1 hour. Maybe food should not be steamed for that long. The first thing cooked in the steamer was some boneless pork chops. I let them steam for 1 hour. Once I took them out the steamer and onto a plate, I could cut them with a fork. It was finger licking good. I cannot wait to steam me some broccoli and corn. I can see this steamer being used for many different things. This steamer will be put to go use. I am so glad I picked this item.MizzLBC
Easy to use and maintain, great meals
Like most everyone in America, I would like to start eating a healthier diet. I thought that the Hamilton Beach Steamer could help with that. So upon receiving the steamer I washed it out as directed and assembled it. It has a lot of parts to you it, but the nice thing is they all can nest into each other when you put it away. So I began preparing a lunch for my husband consisting of salmon, zucchini, and Jasmine rice. The salmon fillets were cut by the butcher about an inch thick and so I just plopped them skin side down on the first floor (bottom) container. I sprinkled light garlic salt on both fillets and placed a medium slice of lemon on each. I csliced zucchini and squeezed them in around the fish. In the rice bowl you just add a cup of rice and a cup of water. I added a slice of lemon into the rice as well because I cut an extra one. I plugged in the steamer and I was very pleased to see how it lit up and was very easy to read and use. I put the timer on 30 minutes. This was an executive decision because the directions say rice is about 35 minutes but the salmon is about 17, although my salmon fillets were pretty big. Well, everything was done at the same time and it came out perfectly!! My husband was really impressed with our healthy lunch and so was I. But I was also really happy about how easy clean-up was. Helpful hint, turn off power and unplug machine if you don't need it to warm any remaining food that way everything is cooled enough after dinner to wash and put away. I took everything apart and threw the top pieces (NOT the base) into to the sink and washed them easily. Helpful hint, #2, don't use a really abrasive scrubber to wash the pieces as the plastic can get scratched. I can't wait to use this steamer again, and serve easy, healthy meals to my family.MaddysMommy1234
