Steam Cooking


Steam Cooking: Buying Guide

With the modern diet taking a drastic downward spiral into fast food, processed meals and the invention of the microwave, steamers offer a breath of fresh air (or steam) and offer a healthy way of preparing anything from fresh vegetables to fish. This article will tell all you need to know about steamers before making a purchase.

As with any kitchen appliance, there are number of factors that you will want to consider before committing your hard-earned cash.

Food quantity
When starting steam cooking, it is important to consider the amount of food you will be preparing.

How steamers work
Steamers generally work by heating water in a container at the bottom of the device. Trays with porous bases are then placed on top of the steam-producing hardware and the steam percolates up through the holes, cooking the food in the process. The capacity generally refers to how large each of the trays are, and how many you can stack on top of each other. Many steamers have rice baskets for cooking oriental meals, and other many specialist extras are available.

Economy of space and power
Take care to pick a steamer that will prepare all the food you want but not take up too much space and power.

Product quality
The next consideration is the overall quality of the product and what advanced features is has.

Various accompanying features

Water level indicator
A water gauge is an essential component of all quality steamers as this tells you how much water is left in the base component. This helps you to prevent the machine from running out of steam!

Timer
Timers are found on many steamers and allow you to start your food cooking then do other things around the kitchen, an essential for any modern household chef with a few kids running around.

Do some research before the purchase
The most important thing when purchasing a steamer, or in fact any household appliance, is to read reviews for individual units, either online or in magazines.

Where to obtain more information?
Amazon has a great collection of kitchen appliances, and features reviews of customers who are either pleased of displeased with the product.

Ebay is another place to look for great deals. However, make sure you buy from reputable sellers with high rating and a proven track record of good service.

Take all of the above into consideration and you should be fully prepared to make an educated purchase. The only thing you need to think about now are steam cooking recipes!
