I got a steamer,its the only kitchen appliance I use every day.I cook everything in my steamer,fish,chicken and vegetables are great done in the steamer,20 minutes or less with the turn of the 'on' button and I have a lovely dinner ready.best of all its one of the healthiest ways to cook,no oil!
you can add any herbs or spices or flavorings in the bottom of the steamer,steamed lemon chicken is lovely!
I fell in love w/ veggies that come in steamer bags that you put directly in the microwave. So I was thrilled when these came out. They are so much less expensive than buying brand name veggies in single-use steamer bags. Put in any fresh or frozen veggies, fish or other meat, microwave away!
I reuse these Ziploc® bags many times b4 I discard them. They are easy to wash with a dishcloth or dish wand. Cooking times vary from their labeled times according to the microwave's wattage. When you steam fish, you have to throw it away after 1 use!
Keep Toss Salad Fresh Longer Use A Silicon Veggie Steamer
I make a big bowl of toss salad and store the left overs in a bowl that has a silicon steamer pressed into the bottom. The steamer I have has little silicon legs so any water that drips off of the salad ends up below the steamer and the leaves stay fresh longer.
Since the steamer is flexible it can be squished into a variety of different size bowls.
