Hamilton Beach Food Steamer

I am impressed with how quickly this food steamer cooked frozen Salmon and vegetables, took only about 40 minutes and it was ready to eat, the salmon was tender. When you first turn the steamer on the default timer is set for 20 minutes but is easily adjusted up or down to 60 minutes max by pushing the up or down arrows. Once the timer runs out you might think that you’re going to around or your going to get cold but you can relax once the timer expires it goes in to a warmer mode keeping the food nice and hot (but remember that is as long as there is water let) so there’s no need to worry just make sure the water level is full when you start.

It also has a Delay Cook timer: here you can do up to a 24 hour delay to start cooking in increments of 30  minutes up to 10 hours after that it is one hour increments all the way to a 24 hours cooking delay. At the same time you can set the cooking time from one minute to one hour; so say you want it to start cooking in five hours for thirty minutes just select the Delay cooking time by touching the Delay Cook and using the up/down arrows select the delay time, then select the how long you want to it to cook touching the Cook button and again using the up/down arrows set the minutes and you are set    

 

I love the fact that there are 2 tiers and a removable bottom for the second tier; this allows you to remove the bottom of the second tier for taller foods that are too big for a single tier. The only complaint I have is that the bottoms of the tiers have dimples in them making them sometimes difficult to clean.
