Got large foods difficult to cook in compact utensils? Worry not! This Hamilton beach steamer can steam large foods like corn on the cob or a head of broccoli when the divider is removed. Food does not dry up in this cooking appliance and without any hassle, steam your delicate fish, lobster, shrimp, clams, eggs, mussels and oysters. We tested the steamer for cooking tender chicken breasts and hot dogs and both the dishes turned out great. In case your stomach craves for some freshly steamed rice, the special feature to cook the rice bowl is the perfect for white or brown rice.

Despite being able to cook a variety of foods, the food steamer brims with modern and upscale features. The beautiful steamer comes in a lustrous silver color with black empanelment. The glass lids and boundaries help you keep a check on your food cooking.

The bowls for steaming are made of fine plastic. The food steamer comes in two tiers. In case you are steaming small foods, one tier would be enough. For cooking large meals, you can stack another tier on the top. For even larger meals, just remove the center divider and you are good to go!

The food cooked in utensils might get cold when kept for some time. However, this food appliance keeps your food warm for up to one hour even after your food is ready. This is possible because of the ‘Auto Warm Feature’.

The digital touchpad is a testimonial of the modish design of this great steamer. Now you can set the countdown timer & there is a cool delay time set-up. You can set the time delay between 30 minutes to 24 hours. This is possible through the ‘Delay Start’ feature.

The easy to clean Hamilton beach digital steamer needs just a gentle hand wash in the soap water.

Safety Precaution – Do not wash the steamer in the dishwasher. However, you can wash the Drip Tray and Rice Bowl in the dishwasher.

One extraordinary safety feature of this steamer is that it warns the user when the water level in the bowl is low. The steamer will turn off and start beeping. You will see this display ‘- -‘. The great thing is that you do not have to open the steamer to refill the water. Just pull out the water drawer. You can also keep a check on the water level. When filled, you can securely switch on the steamer and continue cooking.

Another safety feature is that the food steamer is BPA free in all food zones. BPA is the Bisphenol-A, a chemical present in some plastics. The regular indirect consumption of this chemical is harmful to your body.

There is a user guide which comes with the shipped product. It is useful to check the steaming chart. The best part is that for compact kitchens, and for the owners who like a clutter-free setup, the nested storage design will be an added attraction.

To cook the food faster, use the lower compartment of the steamer. This is used to preferably steam the seafood or chicken breasts. Also, other foods with longer cooking times, such as the red potatoes, sliced carrots, chicken breasts, and fish steaks are preferably steamed in the bottom bowl. Foods that take shorter time to cook, like the green beans and squash can be steamed in the upper bowl.
