It is okay

published

The product did what I expect. I use it to reheat food and cook porage and rice for my kid. I can't say it is perfect. But we get what we paid for. The small version is neat and suitable for a kitchen. The last one I bough broken in about 3 years, for the frequency (two to three times a day) I am using this product, I think it is acceptable.

Fabulous steamer

published

Have had this steamer for 10 months and use it once to twice a week. It is ideal when coming home late from work to whip up a nutritious meal in very little time. It is easy to use and clean. Comes with a good cookbook that has a variety of recipes. I highly recommend this steamer.

Disappointed

published

We bought this on the 15th August and less than a month it was broken. The monitor keep on showing the sign to put water in while there is water inside already. Tefal gave me a phone number which does not deal with products under warranty, and another numberis 35km away from my home to check the product. Eventually Appliance Online offer me a refund/replacement, i choose refund because i do not want to get another faulty product.

Better Overall

Love it love it love it..

I won this when I completed the Health Heart Challenge... Thank you Tefal.. Not only was I surprised to win anything as that wasn't the reason I entered the challenge, but we now have our favourite family item for the kitchen (and my husband is slightly obsessed with kitchen items so we have quite a few).. My 3 year old twin girls fight over who is going to have the most vegies (this has never happened before and was always an effort to get anything but mashed potato down their gobs).. corn, beans, Carrots (they never tasted so good), asparagus, zucchini, the list is endless.. all delicious, easy as to prepare and healthy.. who would have thought healthy food would be so yum.. Thanks so much..
Food tastes awesome, easy to prepare and clean

Is this appliance safe to use to prepare food for babies? Is it BPA free?

It claims to be bpa fbree, i think it is safe to use for baby because there is no direct food contact. If you prefer the safest option, you may wish to try Miele steamer but it costs about $1500. Food grade multiply stainless steel wok with rack (a wok with lid is deep enough and provides flexibility). There is a brand called Buffalo making these food grade stainless woks. My family has been using it for 20 years and it is still good. It costs about $200.

The recipe book I got with my recent purchase was very brief - only 10 pages in a massive book written in various languages. Is there another, more substantial recipe book available?
