Electric 2-Tier 6-Quart Food Steamer
Steam Your Cuisine for Mouthwatering Meals
Cook healthy, delicious dinners at home with help from Oster's easy-to-use electric food steamer. Whether gathering food from a favorite store, local farmer's market, or from your very own vegetable garden, the food steamer makes it fun to indulge in nature's bounty all year long.
Use the food steamer to prepare a variety of entrees and side dishes--anything from savory jasmine rice, wild-caught fish, or farm-raised chicken to the whole gamut of fresh or frozen vegetables, including artichokes, asparagus, summer squash, red potatoes, and more.
Large 2-Tier Capacity
The versatile 6-quart food steamer provides a double-tiered design and two stackable transparent steaming bowls--a large 3-4/5-quart steaming bowl and a 2-2/7-quart steaming bowl--that make it possible to steam two different foods simultaneously, without any cross-over of flavors. The large steaming bowl can also be used for cooking up to eight soft- or hard-cooked eggs at a time--great for springtime holidays, Sunday brunch, or as a healthy on-the-go snack throughout the week.
For rice, simply add the rice (or other foods with sauce or liquid) to the included 10-cup-capacity rice bowl. Place the rice bowl in the lower steaming bowl and cover with the lid. The food steamer takes it from there.
Powerful Steam in an Instant
Start cooking right away thanks to the unit's instant-steam function. The food steamer's powerful 900-watt heating element quickly heats the water in the reservoir, automatically and instantaneously generating steam. Even more, its exterior water-level indicator makes it possible to monitor water levels at a glance, while its exterior water inlet on the base of the unit offers a convenient way to add water during the steaming process (no need to remove the steaming bowls).
User-Friendly Design with LCD Display
The food steamer's push-button control panel includes an LCD display with a 95-minute timer (the maximum cook time), a red "cook" indicator light, a green "keep-warm" indicator light, an audible "ready" signal, and an on-board reference guide that lists cooking times for popular food items. Cooking can be delayed for up to 12 hours, and the food steamer's automatic keep-warm setting will maintain an ideal serving temperature (for up to an hour) while the finishing touches on dinner are being made.
Other highlights include integrated side handles on the steaming bowls for a secure grip, a secure-fitting lid to help trap heat and moisture, a drip tray to catch drips and spills, and an easy-to-clean design (most parts are top-rack dishwasher-safe). Even more, the bowls nest together, which allows for space-saving storage in between use.

The ovoid shape is superior to the round design for so many food types. Next, the modular nature of the steamer bowls are great for steaming multiple food items at once. Finally, the programmable timer makes prep & delay cooking a breeze. All of this having been said, the unit should have had a lot going for it. Not at all the case. Even the most feature-rich kitchen tool becomes useless when the electronics fail & you are left with an expensive addition to the trash can - which is where both of my 5712's ended-up. For clarification, both of my units were never subjected to
submersion when cleaning - far from it, opting instead to use cleaning & drying away from running water. Distilled water was used to generate steam & avoid possible contaminates. In short, usage was better than that suggested in the manual.
If you have this Oster product & it performs well, I wish you well for the future. If you are considering the Oster 5712 Food Steamer from this source or any other, I would encourage you to look at another brand that does the same function. This is not an Oster product of days gone by & simply put it's a piece of junk. I'll admit it; "Fool Me Twice, Shame on Me".
It has an external water-fill system so you can add water from the outside. It makes adding water while it is being used easy and safe so you don't have to open the cover or remove the tray bowls to add water.
The machine can steam all sorts of foods including chicken, fish, seafood and vegetables. It can also steam rice up to 10 cups which is really nice.
Having this steamer allows me to make very healthy foods and dishes by steam cooking. You can throw everything into the steamer and cook full meals. With cooking and cleaning very simple with this machine, it makes the preparing food and cleaning up so easy and quick. There is a keep warm setting so you can keep food warm even after it is cooked so it does not get cold.
Steaming food together allows for foods to absorb the flavors of the other foods being steamed. With the foods consolidated into one cooking area, you can serve food right out of the steamer bowls on the table if you desire.
Steaming is also the easiest way to cook vegetables, chicken, fish and seafood.
It also makes a very good gift. It comes in an Oster retail box for the steamer. It is priced good on Amazon. If you have Amazon Prime, the 2-day Free shipping is very nice.
I definitely recommend the Oster 5712 Electronic 2 Tier 6.1 Quart Food Steamer. It is my favorite cooking machine in the kitchen. It is easy to cook, and it is easy to clean. And, the food comes out great and naturally tasty an healthy.
