About Food Steamers
Steaming is one of the healthiest methods of cooking; it maximises the flavour of your favourite foods while retaining all the essential nutrients. When you explore OnBuy’s collection of food steamers, you'll find a host of high-quality steamers from the likes of Tower and Tefal in an array of styles.
What are the different kinds of food steamers?
When it comes to picking a food steamer, there's a huge array of styles to choose from! From stylish stainless steel food steamers, microwave steamers, effortless electric steamers and even bamboo steamer baskets that are great for cooking oriental specialities, you'll be spoiled for choice here at OnBuy.
If you have a busy family lifestyle and often need to cater to more than one palette, a tiered food steamer is a great option for you. The multi-layered design allows you to evenly cook more than one element at once for a fuss-free family meal. Especially useful for picky eaters, if your little one loves their veggies, but won't go anywhere near rice, you can steam them in completely separate compartments.
With electric food steamers, you can set the time then sit back and relax as the cooking takes care of itself, ideal for hectic families or easy meals while you put your feet up! For versatility and ease of use, look out for a steamer with a variety of settings that will cook each ingredient according to their specific cooking time. You'll never have to worry about raw fish or burning rice ever again!
What are the benefits of using a food steamer?
Widely acknowledged as one of the healthiest methods of cooking, steaming keeps in all of the vital nutrients that are often lost through harsher cooking methods, such as boiling. Alongside the fantastic health benefits, you'll also notice a vibrant, full and genuine flavour from all of your steamed meals.
Whether you choose to manually steam your veggies or invest in an electric steamer, food steamers are also wonderfully quick and inexpensive to use. Not to mention, as they don’t require oil, steamers are also super-easy to clean too - meaning you’ll spend less time slogging away at the sink after your meal!
To top it off, you'll also be impressed by the lack of lingering cooking smells! After most meals when you've been cooking up a storm, you might notice that a strong cooking smell remains for hours, even after you've finished eating. With steaming, all of the cooking odours are expertly contained and won't invade your fresh and clean kitchen!
