Most modern steamers are electric powered and digitally controlled. However sometimes simple is best. The Multi Steamer Pan is a 3 tier stainless steel steamer designed to be used on a hob (any sort!).
One of the best things about this steamer is the weight, it is really light (only 2kg or 4.4lbs), yet it is sturdy and well made.
The steamer has one main pan with two steamer inserts, and a glass lid which allows you to check on the cooking without the risk of getting scalded.
The manufacturers have used an ‘encapsulated’ base which helps spread out the heat, helping to obtain evenly cooked food. The main pan can also double up as a standard saucepan should you need it.
- An 18cm wide stock pan with a glass lid to allow checking without releasing the steam.
- Full dimensions: 18cm x 18cm x 25 cm
- Two steamer inserts.
- Suitable for gas, electric, hot plate, ceramic, halogen hobs.
- Dishwasher safe for easy cleaning.
- Has an ‘encapsulated’ base for even coooking.
- Hollow handles to aid a light weight design, only 2kg.
The Multi Steamer is hob based, which might not suit you, especially if you steam a great deal or want to use it in conjunction with cooking on the stove, but for occasionally steaming it is a great choice, and superb value.
