To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Was glad to receive the product, well packaged for its transit. As a retired senior I do more and more cooking via the microwave method due to it's more quickly cooking process thus not needing to heat a stove-top element first before foods actually cook. With microwave cooking I can have a meal prepared and ready to eat before a stove-top set-up would have completed the cooking process and thus saved me money. This item is a good size for one person, and it has been added to my other few utensils for my own range of cooking abilities. More and more I am convinced that using a separate appliance which heats quickly can also reduce the overall cost(s) which energy-providers slap on us.
Though it's useful and well made, I think it's a little expensive for the fact it's made of plastic and isn't really very large. However, if it fullfills it's purpose for a decent number of years, then I guess it's okay.
Le Plat Avait L'air Beaucoup Plus Grand Sur La Photo Qu'en Vrai Si vous êtes une personne Seul ça peut faire l'affaire Mais quand même Très Petit A Mon Avis sinon je l'ai essayé il fonctionne quand meme bien
Got this to replace a 2 piece steamer of questionable material. Two pieces meant food was sitting in the water instead of above it, so the results were often uneven and mushy. This new steamer is bpa free, food cooks faster, and the results are more like stove top cooking. I've made steamed red potatoes in less time than it would take to bring water to a boil for boiled potatoes on the stove, and the potatoes cook evenly and aren't mushy. Dishwasher safe! It is small, but that's exactly what I need for a two person household.
This review is for the 6x6 steamer. After receiving hundreds of cheap Chinese junk products over the past 8 years, I have only received a few that I rate as "real good" in materials and construction. This steamer is one of those. Thick, heavy duty, non-brittle plastic for the body, basket and lid. Just enough flex. A secure, tight steam vent toggle on the lid. The 4 flip lock latches are thick and produce a positive seal when in the locked position. This steamer is made for 1 or 2 people. If you need it for more, look elsewhere. I've been using this steamer for frozen veggies over the past week and I'm very happy with how it performs. I haven't and won't put this in the dishwasher; I've been hand washing. Why only 4 stars? To show I wasn't paid or bribed for my review. I actually would give it 5 stars.
The way this looked in the picture, it looked way bigger than it was. I was thinking it was about the size of a half gallon carton of ice cream. That's the reason I never checked the measurements on it in the description, if there were any. My fault on that. It's about the size where you could place a sandwich in it. Really no bigger than that. Depth was fine but width...I was disappointed. If it was just me, it would be a perfect size, but a family of 4...going to have to steam in batches 2-3 times. Too much trouble to send back so I'm just sticking it on my back shelf.
