Small and lightweight. Replaced an older Oster which we liked but was warn from lots of use. Note: the basket handles have a # 1 or 2 molded into them. Basket #1 is ‘always’ the bottom basket or puddling of condensed steam onto your counter will result. We don’t use two tiers as a general rule but did notice using #2 by itself resulted in puddling but #1 by itself did not because it seals to the base correctly. A look at the exploded view diagram in the manual shows #2 sitting atop #1. It makes a difference!
I’ve had mine a year now. I’ve used it probably 15-20 times. It works well and I like it BUT the plastic bottoms of the trays are all fractured and are now starting to crack apart and small pieces are falling off. Same thing happened to my old steamer but it lasted me 10 years before it got to this point. Will not be replacing this one with the same one. Embarrassed to have also given one of these as a gift.
Both the steam basket and lid have dark looking burn marks after a couple months use .The only thing that’s touched the lid when steaming are artichokes. The marks won’t scrub off, so it’s permanent. I’m shopping for stainless steel or glass.
I made sure to clean every dish part with warm soapy water and the reservoir with damp, clean cloth before I used it. The heating part in the middle of the reservoir is covered with chalky stuff after the first usage, and I was only cooking sweet potatoes 🙁 What is this stuff? Can anyone let me know? Plus, I used brita-filtered water for the reservoir.
It looks nice on the counter and steams quickly. I only gave it 3 stars for the dial. Not only are the numbers on the dial hard to see, like some of the other reviews have mentioned, it also makes an annoying clicking noise the entire time it’s in use. It’s like an old egg timer.
Great steamer. Cooks food easy and fast. Downside is the reservoir is much too shallow. When food is finished it’s almost to the brim if not overflowing. Makes disposing of the water difficult
I just got the steamer yesterday and couldn’t wait to try it. I put a bunch of frozen broccoli and frozen shrimp with some bay leaves paprika and pepper in the water. The food was infused with the smell of bay leaves. It took about 25 minutes for the food to be cooked.
I have been steaming my vegetables and other foods for 20 years. I have used several brands and steaming techniques during that time. So I was anxious to receive this steamer and see if it was worth the price.
I received my Bella steamer yesterday and used it last night. It is a high-quality product. The plastic “baskets” are made of very durable plastic. The little drawer used to add more water during steaming is a definite plus. My other steamers didn’t have that feature. This steamer is definitely worth the price – and more.
I highly recommend this steamer.
