Best Automatic Pan Stirrer with Timer
Cuisinart STM-1000 Cook Fresh Digital Glass Steamer, One Size, Stainless Steel
Best Automatic Pan Stirrer with Timer is a very nice product. I have two of these—one at home and one at work. I use them for cooking pretty much everything—vegetables, oatmeal, fish, eggs, and frozen food. I often use the steamer the same way I would use a microwave—I put food in a Pyrex or Corell dish, and then put the dish in the steamer.
That way, I don’t have to wash anything but the dish. The steamer is almost as fast as a microwave, and the food tastes way better. Since I have been using the steamer, I think that I was mistaken to ever think that cooking food with microwaves was a good idea.
I especially like the results I get with frozen food. Frozen food needs to be spread out on the dish, and I sometimes have to pour off some water after cooking the food. But the taste is amazing. Frozen vegetables are often fresher than anything you can get at the market, because they are frozen right after they are picked.
The steamer thaws them evenly and then cooks them just the right amount, without destroying the flavor. The vegetables taste like they came from a very expensive restaurant. And I can even serve them in the warm dish that they were cooked in—something the expensive restaurants rarely can do.Promised Review by Jim C
