The Review

The first model that we are going to add to our list of the best food steamers is this one from Russell Hobbs. Russell Hobbs is perhaps the best known brand, when it comes to kitchen appliances. Having been impressed by previous products that we have tested, we were fairly sure that we would be impressed by this one and we weren’t wrong.

The main thing that drew us to this model is the value for money. This is an incredibly affordable food steamer, especially for such a well-known brand. Now, onto the design. The design of this particular food steamer is brilliant. There are no complicated menus to try and figure out and the steamer itself is incredibly easy to use.

There are three tiers with this steamer which allows plenty of room to cook meat and vegetables at the same time. There is also an adjustable timer so you can make sure that the food is cooked to perfection. Unfortunately, there were a couple of issues that we had that are worth mentioning.

First of all, we were a little disappointed to find that the baskets are opaque rather than transparent as they appear in the pictures. This can make judging the cooking process a little more difficult. We also found that storing the steamer was a little difficult too.

When topping up the water levels in the steamer during the cooking process, we found that you need a very small jug. We felt that it would be better if one was supplied with the steamer. However, considering the brilliant value for money, we still recommend this food steamer if you want something cheap and cheerful.

Cons:

  • We found that the top tier doesn’t steam as well.

The Review

The next model that we would like to add to our list of the best food steamers is this one from Geepas. We hadn’t heard of this brand before we tested it, so we had no idea whether it would be any good or not. Fortunately, we were very impressed with the performance as well as the value for money.

First of all, we loved the design of this one. It has a very nice modern design and it really does feel solid. It has 1000w of power which we found made all the difference to the speed of steaming as well as the end results. One thing that really impressed us with this one is the 12L capacity. We were able to cook huge amounts of food at the same time.

We didn’t have any difficulties using the food steamer and we found that putting it all together was really easy. The only issue that we did have is that we found that the top tier didn’t seem to steam as well. However, this could probably be remedied by changing the positioning of different types of foods so that those that don’t require as much cooking are positioned at the top.

Overall, we were really pleased with this one and would certainly recommend it to those who want to steam food for the entire family.

The Review

Number one on our list of the best food steamers is this one from Morphy Richards. We know that Morphy Richards has a solid reputation for producing high quality kitchen appliances so we were expecting to be very impressed with this one and we definitely were. There are plenty of positives with this one.

First of all, we were very impressed with the quality of this steamer. It has been designed exceptionally well and looks fantastic. We had no trouble using this steamer at all; there are no complicated menus to navigate and we were able to set the timer with no problem at all. We tried steaming both meat and vegetables and were very pleased with the results.

All of the food that we steamed was cooked to perfection. One of the best features for us was the LCD screen. This backlit screen is very easy to read and we were able to navigate all of the different settings with no difficulties at all. The capacity of this steamer is quite small at only 5L, but we really feel that this is a minor issue for such a high quality food steamer.
