A couple of months ago I reviewed the Masha – a product from the a range by Sensio Home. I was very impressed with the Masha and couldn’t wait to try the Steama.
As the weather is starting to turn colder I have been preparing and cooking more meals recently – during the summer months we eat lots of salads, pasta and barbecues, in fact I rarely use the hob at all if I am honest. But when I get the chance I like to cook but I hate how much time I spend in the kitchen especially when I have so many other things that I need to be doing. In the few weeks that I have been using the Steama I have found that my vegetables are cooked a lot easier and quicker. I can spend more time doing other things whilst they are cooking without worrying that a pan is going to boil over or boil dry (we’ve had a couple of instances of both when I have forgotten about something cooking on the hob).
The Steama is really simple to use. Once you have cut and washed your veg you simply need to place it in the containers, make sure that the lids are unlocked and place them on the base of the machine. You then fill the Steama’s basin with water (you can see how full it is using the measure on the right hand side) , turn the dial to the required time – there is a handy little list on the side of the Steama to show you how long products need steaming for, once the timer runs out your food is ready – it really is as simple as that. I love that the Steama has an instant steam function means there is no waiting unlike with pans on a hob that need to be brought up to temperature and then turned down etc and watched so that they don’t boil over.
The Steama can hold 9 litres of food in total so you can easily cook for a family. The Steama comes complete with 3 containers and a rice bowl. The largest container will hold up to 4 litres and the 2 others can store up to 2.5 litres each. All 3 containers can be removed easily, they are dishwasher safe and are BPA-free.
I did notice that our vegetables tasted nicer when being steamed, even the boys said that they were yummy. We will certainly be using it more now the colder, darker nights are drawing in.
