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!
"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 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.
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.
