I never realized that there are so many advantages to owning a food steamer that I started wondering why I waited so long to get one.
Ever since I got the Simple Touch Food Steamer I started steaming most of our food, even hotdogs! Yes, hotdogs!
I just learned that steaming is one of the most nutritious ways of cooking food, because it allows the boiling water to vaporize into steam, and this steam heats the food without removing its nutrients. The food always stays separate from the boiling water and this results in a moist texture of food. Unlike boiling, where the process can leach your food of nutrients.
My first, steamed dishes using the Simple Touch Food steamer are: steamed lapu-lapu, mixed vegetables, and store-bought siomai. You can find my recipe of steamed lapu-lapu just below this post.
I steamed everything using my new Simple Touch Food Steamer.
This steamer is a wonderful choice when you’re looking to quickly and efficiently cook delicious and nutritious meals for the whole family. It has a three tier design makes it easy to steam various food at the same time, such as meat and vegetables, or seafood.
It has a transparent sides which I personally enjoy because I can see the food being cooked.
My favorite features are the water level indicator, LCD display, and the keep warm.
I like the water level indicator because I find it very helpful to make sure I will not overflow it or run out of water in the process.
The LCD display lets me know when the device is on, and what cycle it’s set to.
I also find the keep warm feature to be very effective, it keeps the steamed dishes at the ideal temperature while I set the table or wait for the other meals to be prepared.
I’m so glad I finally got myself a food steamer. My next menu are: steamed tofu in soy sauce, steamed spareribs with black bean sauce and some steamed kangkong. Watch out for my steamed recipes soon.
My next kitchen appliance purchase would be a slow cooker — I wonder how these wonderful kitchen appliances would streamline my cooking time. .
