The steamer from the series 'Gourmet' is ø 22 cm vegetable steamer with a flat glass lid. It can also be used separately as a pan without the steamer insert. Not only is it a steam cooker, but it can be used for various cooking techniques to achieve professional cooking results. The Gourmet steamer has a flat, transparent lid so you can always keep an eye on what's happening with your meat, vegetables or fish.
How does a steamer work? A layer of water is added to the bottom until it is a few centimetres deep. This liquid in the base of the steamer is what creates the flavour; add some olive oil, herbs or garlic to the water. Then place the ingredients to be steamed on the grill tray and let Gourmet do its work on any heat source ... Then the steam insert goes on top. In this goes whatever food you would like to steam. Then just place the lid on top. What you're steaming does not come in contact with the water, it is only the steam produced that actually cooks the food.
The advantages of steaming:
- Fast: Steaming is a very fast way to cook
- Simple: Steaming is a simple method of preparation
- Affordable: Steam pans are inexpensive
- Tastier: The flavours are better preserved
- Healthier: Nutrients remain better preserved and are also easier to digest
This steamer is designed for the true connoisseur: The Gourmet!
