Stainless Steel Steamer £4.99 @ Argos

16 June 2012

If you dash over to Argos, you'll be able to pick up a stainless steel steamer, that fits over most regular saucepans, for just £4.99 - its normal price is double that.

So we (should) all know by now that it's much better to steam your veg than boil the living daylights out of it.  You didn't know that?  Well it is, it prevents all their goodness and nutrients being lost and means you don't end up with soggy grey mush on your plate (that's how we identified broccoli and sprouts when we had lunch at my nan's).

You can buy dedicated steamers but they can be a bit on the pricey side, and sometimes you only want to steam a few pieces and using an entire steamer for that is like using the proverbial sledgehammer to crack a nut.

This stainless steel steamer, then, seems like a good and very cost effective solution to me; simply sit it over the top of saucepan of boiling water.

It has two tiers, can be used to steam meat and fish too (steamers aren't just for veg!), has a glass lid and double stainless steel handles and is dishwasher safe too; reviews are great too, fabulous.
