This is the only steamer I have ever owned that doesn't have a bell to notify you when the time has elapsed. Even a "Dollar Store" egg timer has a bell.
I've used it off and on over the past month and a half since having purchased it (having been significantly steered in this product's direction after contrasting the "negative" issues that were mentioned in other reviews of the various similar appliances offered by different manufacturers, and gaining the satisfaction that this particular one seemed as though it would raise the fewest of concerns with me of all of the steamers found in this more "economical" price range). Thus far, the extent of my usage has been to steam frozen crab legs and various arrays of fresh produce... including steaming leafy greens, and it does a fine enough job, but I was under the impression that steaming food would be equate to considerably faster cooking than boiling, which I've often not found to be the case, but there's the plus of not having so much of the "good stuff" leaching out in the steaming process as opposed to boiling water.
If I were to share what are [to me personally] a list of gripes, or at least perceived 'shortcomings' of this unit, it would relate to the following:  - I do not like not having any sort of an audible "session complete" indicator -- again, I'll admit that I was wanting something a bit more "on-the-cheap," but even so I think it should have at the very least a little 'bell ding' at the timer dial's conclusion (which would be very helpful for those of us with short attention spans who have a burning need to engage in other activities away from the kitchen while long-cook food is being made);  - I'm not a fan of those plastic discs with the small series of punched-out holes across them ~ I'd have much more preferred discs that were more mesh/wire-like in design so that the steam produced would have the benefit of taking advantage of maximum volume without needing to "squeeze through" a few little tiny holes;  - I'm quite fearful that the clear plastic would likely prove very delicate and fragile, so I'm always playing it with a healthy bit of caution to ensure that I'll never have to find out in some unfortunate mishap just how weak and brittle they just may actually be; and  - a "water level" indicator of some sort would've been nice... but, again, buying "on-the-cheap," only so much could be reasonably expected, especially given its very basic design.
As for some "positives":  - I keep expecting this thing to leave large pools of water on my counter tops, but impressively, despite its design and fit which immediately leaves you with that anticipated gut expectation, all of the condensation that is produced inside (excepting what which escapes through the lid vents) remains inside; and  the ease of cleaning cannot be overstated.
As I'm writing this review, this EXACT SAME UNIT is being featured as being branded by "OVENTE" as Amazon Order Number ASIN B0831SCHG8 ... not sure if one or the other is involved in some sort of "knock-off" deal or if this may perhaps be part of some "licensing" arrangement. I bring this up because as I've come to leave my views on this "NESCO" steamer, I've found that its availability is (at least for the time being) now relegated to a couple of outside vendors who are charging for this same item nearly and over TWICE what I'd originally purchased it for, the latter of which just so happens to be almost the exact same price as being offered by the "OVENTE" version... so maybe look into that one if interested.
