Product Description

With the Convenient Series steamer by Tefal, preparing healthy, nutrient-rich meals for all the family couldn’t be easier. The two durable stainless steel bowls (6L combined capacity) fit neatly inside each other, over the base, for ultra-compact storage. Rest assured, this handy steamer will take up hardly any space in your kitchen. You won’t even need to monitor progress – just add your food and set the timer (up to 60 minutes). When the time is up, a bell will let you know that your food is ready and the steamer will switch off automatically. So, there’s no risk of overcooking your food if you’re out of earshot! Thanks to the visible water level indicator, you’ll never let the steamer boil dry, while external filling lets you top up the water without interrupting the cooking process. The Convenient Series steamer even comes with an added rice and pulses accessory, allowing you to create complete meals using just one appliance. Plus, we guarantee that your steamer will be repairable for 10 years.

  • Convenient Series steamer makes it easy to prepare healthy, nutrient-rich meals for the whole family 
  • Two stackable bowls fit inside each other, over the base, for ultra-compact storage
  • Stainless steel bowls add a touch of elegance, while ensuring long-lasting cooking performance

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best steamer available I have had this steamer before and it served well for many years before eventually starting to leak. That said I was not put off and immediately replaced with exactly the same model - why? This is the only steamer I could find anywhere that is stainless steel. There are many others, some cheaper but many more expensive that are made of plastic which fades and cracks after a lot of use. I use this steamer virtually every day. Stainless steel is cleaner, more robust and much easier to clean than plastic, as well as being more aesthetically pleasing. The steamer itself works brilliantly - it steams! It has a simple timer mechanism and loads of steaming space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent steamer, but it does have its 'drawbacks An excellent steamer, however I am disapointed that the base and the waste water containers are made of plastic. I bought the steamer on the basis that it is a stainless steel steamer, but lets be honest if 50% of the inside of the steamer where the cooking takes place is PLASTIC then for cooking purposes it is not a stainless steel steamer. Plastic pollution of food by diffusion is highly likely has the heated steam will tend to react with the plastic and carry that plastic into the stainless steel baskets, NEGATING the reason for having stainless steel dishes in the first place. You could do better Tefal!?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good steamer I have this steamer for 2 years now and it is in perfect condition. I bought it especially for my son when I started to give him purees and solid foods, because I wanted to start in a healthy way and to don't waste the money on a baby steamer to use it for just a few months I went for this steamer. What I like the most are the stainless-steel steamers, they are really long lasting. And one thing that I don't like is that it gets stained a bit inside especially from carrots, but otherwise this appliance is really great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stainless steel steamer No problems at all with the cooking - vegetables taste really good - but storing baskets upside down means the lid can slide off the top which is a bit worrying because it is glass. Excellent to be able to put everything (except the electrical bit!) in the dishwasher. A great improvement on the plastic version where the lid lost its handle and the basket bases lost their little lugs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very compact and good quality food steamer. Good quality food steamer. Very compact. The 2 dishes are big enough to allow cooking a variety of foods. Generally easy to clean. The steel dishes and glass lid are better than the plastic dishes and lid on other steamers which crack and split over time. The water refill chute is a good idea to top-up the water level. The only downside with my steamer version is that it has no minute markers on the timer dial - so if you want to steam something accurately, like soft-boiled eggs, then you need to use your own digital timer to steam to a specific time as the manual dial is not accurate enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Electric steamer Really good overall. Water does get trapped in the lid after washing though, which is a bit annoying!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent purchase Food is steamed to perfection. Only problem I have encountered is when adding additional water via the pull out spout, a kettle is too bulky and at an angle which proves difficult to pour into the steamer. So far the steamer has cleaned up well and is easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent steamer Bought this to replace plastic steamer which had cracked and unusable though not old. This was is metal, very sturdy, looks well and is stackable which makes it easy to store. Very pleased with my purchase.
