I am a huge veggie eater. I am one of those people who would much rather eat a carrot than fruit (although I do love fruit too – don’t get me wrong). There are two ways I love to cook them – roasted and steamed. So this Sunsella Stainless Veggie Steamer is perfect and is going to get a ton of use in this house.
This steamer is 100% stainless steel (including legs). High-grade stainless steel construction. Expands to fit various pot sizes with a unique compact collapsible design for space-saving storage. Center post and legs attached, no assembly required. Easy removal from pan with custom designed central ring. Diameter 5.3″ – 9.25″ Height range (legs included) 2″ – 3.35″. Retain the ‘crunch’ and tenderness of your veggies. Perfect for steaming fruit and vegetables for making baby food.
This steamer was super easy to use. It has legs that allow it to sit in the pan and makes it super easy to steam all sorts of veggies…even shrimp. My favorite part? It is so easy to clean! We don’t have a dishwasher so that is important to me (and my hands). And it folds down and is so compact that it will fit any where, which is great when you have a kitchen with little storage space.
While steaming is a super easy way to cook foods, there are also actual benefits to it over boiling.
- Steaming vegetables is the healthiest way to cook them because it allows the nutrients to stay in place unlike boiling or sauteing in which the nutrients leak into the cooking liquid.
- The flavor is outrageous! They are cooked perfectly and all of the natural flavors come through.
- Steaming doesn’t require any fat to be used, which is good for my thighs. And while healthy fats are ok in moderation, it’s nice to be able to eat something that doesn’t need to be cooked in oil.
Another benefit is that is takes no time at all – 3-5 minutes for most veggies. Such a great benefit for those of us who are super busy.
What is your favorite way to cook veggies?
