If you’ve never experienced the joys of an electric food steamer, you haven’t lived. Maybe that’s a bit extreme, but seriously, my food steamer rocks! We had put it on our wedding registry (we’re married now – woohoo!), just curious about it really and not expecting to get it. I’m so glad we did because you can cook almost anything in it. Check out the picture below – I’m making hard-boiled eggs and rice all in one contraption!
Another night we made a layer of corn on the cob, a layer of tilapia filet, and a layer of broccoli and squash – all in one fell swoop – and in only 30 minutes. By the way, we have found that steamed corn on the cob might even be better than grilled corn on the cob (>gasp<). You can make all kinds of vegetables, meat, fish, rice, eggs, oatmeal, and even heat up your leftovers in this baby.
I don’t know how some food steamers compare to others, but I do know that ours is awesome. You can find it here.
Next – crab legs!
