I loved mine before it blew up!

Very easy to make a full meal on a 3 tier steamer, just throw it all in and kick back :)

Aways put your meat on the bottom tier, especially chicken so that the juice etc doesn't drip onto everything below.......

Thanks all. Interesting Gsedge1, i like my veg tasting of chicken so i'd do the opposite.. you gave me some good inspiration for a new method for cookin! :)

Are there any major health / taste benefits of a steamer anyone's noticed?

Keeps more of the nutrients & flavour in rather than boiling them out - much better tasting IMO.

BB73 & Gsedge1 - from fact it keeps nutrients in (which we need since veggies these days are pants compared to older days!) i think it shall be a worthwhile investment!

Cheers fellas.

Agree, also found the George Foreman grills a waste - took so long to clear up after :cursing: it was quicker just to do it under the grill (put some foil on the tray and any waste goes on the foil and into the bin).

Sorted :)

Don't need to buy a fancy steamer... just fill a large pan with water, bring to boil, and place a sieve or collander over the pan (not touching water) with the veg in it and cover with a metal lid... does the job perfectly well :)

You can buy a 3 tier branded steamer for around £10.

Really easy to use and food does taste better.

Also if cooking a few types of veg then it saves using all the rings on the cooker at once.
