Hamilton Beach 37530A First Impressions

"IT IS JUST WHAT I NEEDED."

This one is analog so it is able to keep going long after the water is gone. I wanted to verify that the area the water is cooked in is made of stainless steel. The features and capacities are practically identical. So many dollars wasted over the years on stackable plastic steamers! It took about 25 minutes for the food to be cooked. It beeps when you start it up, when you make a selection, and when it's done. I have no idea where it went, and the other one got broken.

Hamilton Beach 37530A Final Thoughts

"So far I'm very happy."

I especially like the results I get with frozen food. Either they are truly defective and are getting too hot. I regularly steam veggies and rice, and always use it to hard boil eggs. One star off for the fiddly bowls but overall a good purchase. First of all, let me explain that I use a steamer several times each week. The steam retains the delicate tilapia flavor and is so flaky. That thing is useless, but luckily it's also pointless.

2. Krups 652-70 OptiSteam Plus 2-Tier Steamer, DISCONTINUED

KRUPS 652-70 First Impressions

"Good size."

The vegetables taste like they came from a very expensive restaurant. A manual dial is not a problem for me if the item is helpful. It is loud enough to hear in another room but not so loud to wake the dead I suppose. The current Black and Decker steamers seems to be way over priced. I've had this steamer for about a month and I really like it so far. I haven't had any bending issues on it. I have to say that I do love the steamer.

KRUPS 652-70 Final Thoughts

"I like the analog timer."

I've never used it for meat, so I can not speak on that. The rice bowl will steam a cup of rice at a time. IF YOU LET THAT HAPPEN of course it is going to melt. Time will tell if the plastic steaming baskets hold up. And putting flavorings like herbs in the water has really worked out well. I wanted to verify that the area the water is cooked in is made of stainless steel. This steamer is all digital, whereas my old one just had a dial.

"No burned pots."

The versatility makes it really valuable to me because you can steam eggs in it. I've had this steamer for about a month and I really like it so far. Im glad i went ahead and bought it. I've never used it for meat, so I can not speak on that. It will not give you precisely the amount of seconds you want. I even made room in my pantry to store it. It will not give you precisely the amount of seconds you want.

Black & Decker Final Thoughts

"Love this steamer."

Some people have said that their steamer has leaked when used. It's extremely easy to use and works very well. I love hard boiled eggs and they steam so much better than boiling. Maybe finding a good steamer recipe book would do as well. It cooks very quickly and thoroughly! Easy to take in and out of pantry on the regular. I mean it's free food at that point.

"I am glad I bought it."

Either they are truly defective and are getting too hot. Easy to take in and out of pantry on the regular. I had to guess at the times and things were always under or over cooked. I set it at 15 minutes and everything cooked perfect from the get-go, super fast. OK, I must RAVE about this steamer! The food was infused with the smell of bay leaves. I just got the steamer yesterday and couldn't wait to try it.

Tupperware 1273-4 Final Thoughts

"I highly recommend it."

If diced in 1 inch cubes it takes about 20 minutes and they turn out great! I did tons of research before finally settling on this model. I haven't had any bending issues on it. At this point I don't see any disadvantages to this product. It took about 25 minutes for the food to be cooked. I've had kettles that have done this. 15 minutes is usually more than enough for frozen veggies.

"It isn't a big deal."

Everything comes out perfect and completely done with the presets! I've owned a few steamers, and this one is by far my favorite. That thing is useless, but luckily it's also pointless. There's a plastic ring you place in the middle to separate the two compartments. I regularly steam veggies and rice, and always use it to hard boil eggs. It cooks very quickly and thoroughly!

"So easy to clean."

I especially like the results I get with frozen food. No waiting for the oven or stove to heat up. It is loud enough to hear in another room but not so loud to wake the dead I suppose. This allows you to make two different things at the same time. The features and capacities are practically identical. To me that means that the external shiny stuff is stainless steel. Everything comes out perfect and completely done with the presets!

"It does it's job."

The digital display is pretty basic to understand and use. Either they are truly defective and are getting too hot. I usually cook green veggies once a day and refill the water every other day. Still not crazy about how huge this thing is but it's worth it. It is easily removed and refilled during cooking. Put all seasonings on when you steam, same as if you were using the stovetop or oven. I could not be more pleased with this product.

"Cooks food easy and fast."

If diced in 1 inch cubes it takes about 20 minutes and they turn out great! There is a minimum line& a maximum line. Downside is the reservoir is much too shallow. In my case it is almost always vegetables. This one is analog so it is able to keep going long after the water is gone. In my case it is almost always vegetables. To use it you fill the bottom compartment with water.

It took about 25 minutes for the food to be cooked. I don't have to stand over a stove and worry about my food. Put all seasonings on when you steam, same as if you were using the stovetop or oven. The time is in 30 second intervals. It cooks very quickly and thoroughly! A manual dial is not a problem for me if the item is helpful. Really just wish that it was smaller.

"Were made public."

I especially like the results I get with frozen food. But if you want silence you are out of luck. Alll in all I do enjoy the steamer and glad I purchased it here on Amazon. At the bottom compartments so that seasonings won't get into my rice, just a thought. The time is in 30 second intervals. The current Black and Decker steamers seems to be way over priced. As long as you give the food the right amount of time, everything tastes delicious.

"Rinses clean."

That way, I don't have to wash anything but the dish. My initial concern was that it's huge. The base and lid are mainly made of sturdy glass. I usually fill it right in between both. It's fairly small and very lightweight. I'll update this review if I run into any problems. That thing is useless, but luckily it's also pointless.
