Convenience is something that practically every kitchen gadget strives for. However, some do it better than others. When it comes right down to it, the first factor to consider is accessibility. When a product reduces the amount of steps necessary to get to some end result, the entire process is made more accessible. And when it comes to creating healthy dishes, anything that makes it easier can only be a good thing.
The Fagor Electric Steamer is an electric countertop appliance that makes steaming vegetables an automatic process. Just fill the reservoir with water, set the timer, and wait. Though unlikely to be considered a revolutionary step above a basket steamer, a pot and a lid, if the automatic nature of the machine is enough to provide impetus for actually steaming a batch of veggies, then it's certainly a step in the right direction.
Unlike a traditional basket steamer, the electric steamer is capable of easily steaming fish and rice in addition to vegetables. This is where convenience gets trumped by versatility. The 10-quart capacity steamer comes with three steaming baskets that can be stacked or used individually. Complete meals can be prepared with this one appliance. Complete with digital touch controls and an LCD screen, the steamer is a modern kitchen gadget that goes beyond simple convenience.
