This food steamer works extremely fast. Within 10 minutes of turning it on, you will have perfectly steamed broccoli, asparagus, etc. I love the fact that there is no need to watch over it (as you would have to if you were using a pan of boiling water with a steamer top) and that the machine keeps the food warm for you after it has finished cooking until you are ready to use it. In addition, it includes two tiered steaming bowls (for joint cooking of items that need to be kept separate or that have two different cooking times) as well as a separate rice cooker. It really makes it easier to eat your veggies.

I was reluctant to purchase a food steamer because I have a family of very picky veggie eaters and thought this was the only use for this machine. After reading previous reviews on this product, I bought it anyway because the price was right and I decided I could at least use it as a rice cooker. My first meal I made was by placing some flavored rice mix and some cut up raw chicken in the rice bowl of the steamer and turned it on. It turned out perfectly!! This machine can be used to reheat leftovers, steam ANYTHING and make hard cooked eggs. The possibilities are endless and has now become a staple appliance in my kitchen!! A word of caution, BE CAREFUL opening the steamer after cooking, I got overly anxious and got a wicked steam burn!!

This is also very easy to clean~ I placed it in the top rack of the dishwasher, is quiet, and very durable. A MUST HAVE kitchen item!

WE HAVE HAD SEVERAL STEAMERS BUT THIS ONE TOPS THEM ALL OF EASE OF USE, QUIETNESS AND FOOD PREPERATION. IT IS THE QUIETNESS AND IMMEDIATE STEAM (WITHIN 30 SECONDS FROM TURNING IT ON)THAT MAKE THIS PRODUCT SO SUPERIOR. I PREFER TO USE DISTILLED WATER TO PROLONG THE LIFE OF THE HEATING COIL - BUT - AT THIS PRICE - I WOULD CERTAINLY PURCHASE ANOTHER OSTER WITH SIMILAR RELIABLITY AND FEATURES!

I bought this damn steamer. The lid. The container that holds your rice. All the clear plastic says - when I get out the magnifying glass all the clear plastic the food comes in contact with says: #7 PC. Poly Carbonate. One of the primary components of polycarbonate plastic is Bisphenol A (BPA). Known to be an endocrine disruptor, BPA can affect human health by mimicking the effects of naturally occurring hormones.

I used another bowl other than the clear BPA-FULL plastic one and this dern steamer started leaking around the fill thing after only three uses. I just put the whole mess in my trash can. I wish I could post a picture of it in my trash can. I used to think Oster made decent products. Never again. Unsafe. Unhealthy. And breaks.

my main problems with this appliance is the difficulty of cleaning the reservoir area which shows the water depth from the outside... and the fact that the print on the outside washes off... makes it hard to tell how long you are setting the timer

There's a lot of buzz online about whether or not there is BPA in this steamer. The answer given via email by the company is this:

"The housing is polypropylene. The lid is Amorphous polycarbonate polymer or Amorphous styrene acrylonitrile."

BPA is used in making polycarbonate, so there is a chance there is BPA in the lid. However, the housing is BPA-free.

I use this steamer on an almost daily basis. I love it and would have given it 5 stars if it weren't for one small complaint. The reservoir tends to become slightly stained by - and hold the odor of - whatever is being steamed. Cleaning it with vinegar helps.

This is my first Steamer.
I got this for Christmas and am still in love with it.
It makes steam SO fast... I use it everyday--often more than once a day.
I'm even seriously considering getting another one because I often have to wash the lid before I can use it again.
I haven't tried rice yet, but I have steamed everything including tortillas (Gosh! Burritos are so much easier and fun to make now), chicken, veggies, potatoes, and my all time favorite:Yams.

Pros: Super fast,needs very little supervision and has a warming feature that spouts steam every few minutes after the timer runs out. Also, very very easy to clean and not at all complicated.

Cons: I'm always tempted to salt my food before putting it in the steamer. Also, well, its very nice but it looks a little cheap because it is made from plastic. But, it is sturdier and of a higher quality than the plastic represents.

FYI,, the picture makes it look like you can just load it up with food. Not so. It isn't as tall as the pic makes it look, and if you need to use the small bowl, it takes up a lot of room.
