We received the larger steamer as a gift many years ago, and used it until we burned out the heating element! But I always felt that it was too large for just the 2 of us. I couldn't find one locally in any store to replace it, but I found one on Amazon.com and purchased it. This time I got the smaller HS800 version, which was a perfect size for a family of 2. I use it almost daily and couldn't live without it! I use it to steam veggies, cook brown rice (comes out perfectly!) and even hard-cook eggs. The eggs are perfectly cooked, peel easier than traditional boiled ones, and never have that green ring around the yolk! Best of all, you set the timer and walk away and 35 minutes later the eggs are perfectly hard-cooked! We prefer brown rice to white, but since it takes so long to cook the traditional way and leaves a sticky mess in the pot, I use the steamer to cook the maximum amount the cooker will hold. It takes about an hour (but again you don't have to watch the pot!) and then I portion individual meal servings into storage containers and freeze them for later meals.

I don't know why this product isn't readily available in retail stores. But as long as I can get a replacement on-line, I won't worry about ever being without my steamer!f

I've used the Black & Decker steamers every other day for 14 years. They last about 7 years of heavy usage. Unfortunately, I tried my new one with a new design. How do I get water into the little spout, it's really tough. I asked my wife and she said, no big deal, then proceeded to spill water all over the place and had to mop the water up. Why go backward in a design? And the the water tray was empty before I did a minimum amount of rice. That's never happened before on my older model, even for double the amount of rice. Do I have to stand and watch it now? I have to work and watching a steamer steam is not cost effective and boring. The instructions say I can add more rice to the cup, but it doesn't tell me the time. The timing is different than my old one so do I have to guess the time? I never use the flavor scent so I toss it immediately. I can't on the new one since the basket won't fit if removed. There were two nice finger holds under the older version to easily lift the entire unit. They disappeared and I can't get my fat fingers under the unit now. How am I supposed to pick it up? The plastic steamer basket is really flimsy now. I don't think it's going to last 7 years of every other day usage this time. The clear plastic unit is flimsy as well.It did the steaming ok, but I burned myself trying to get the unit to the sink and the top off. If you have a perfect design, why go backward? That's why very popular car companies stick with the design that works and only modify slightly with improvements. They don't leave cup holders out of the new models and forget to include power stearing.

I've purchased many of these units for friends over the years and highly recommend them. What happened?

I have been shopping and hopping from one rice cooker to another, in search of perfection + ease of cooking. Recently bought a conventional fuzzy logic rice cooker; the cooker is fantastic, but the non-stick coated inner pot is now a turn-off after my recent education about its evils. So, this food steamer was my next investment.

Wow is an understatement! There is no escaping the no brainer rice perfection. You fill the bottom compartment with water all the way to Max, place your rice container (with rice plus suggested water measurement) and then turn the thing on. It takes 60 mins to cook 2 cups of dried rice to result in 4 to 6 cups of cooked rice (depending on the variety you use). Brown rice takes 75 mins. The timer switch is an old-fashioned dial, but does its job and turns off faithfully at the end.

After that is all Rice Heaven. Basmati, sushi, brown, wild, - name it, turns out as it should. The amazing thing is, the cooking is even from top to bottom. No stirring needed.

A couple of caveats to be taken into account.
This is not suitable for making large quantities of rice. It is for fool-proof everyday cooking for a family of four to six, nothing can beat it.
You must immediately toss out that tiny flimsy plastic joke of a rice container that comes with it and get an appropriately shaped Pyrex glass bowl instead: http://www.amazon.com/World-Kitchen-pyrex-1072103-Pyrex-Tear/dp/B002IOFF88/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1287594896&sr=8-6. That is about the only extra effort/expense you will need with this product.

I love this steamer. Simple to use. Seems well made. As far as the complaint of some about no handle in the center of the cover. It is true the design is poor so the steam can burn your hands when you remove the lid. I went to the hardware store and bought a white plastic cabinet knob for $1.99. There is a dimple in the center of the cover where I drilled a small hole and installed the knob. It works great and you would think it came that way from the factory. I hope this helps people with that complaint. Also a quick note, the screw that comes with the knob is too long so make sure and get a shorter one while at the hardware store.
