If you’re looking for a new, simple and healthy way to cook for your family, the Salter 3-Tier Steamer could be for you. It has a 7.5 litre capacity and includes three steam baskets. Its space-saving design of collapsible tiers means it’s easy to store away without cluttering up your kitchen. It has a 60 minute timer to help make dinner time a breeze.
The Salter 3-Tier Steamer has an RRP of £29.99 but now costs just £17.99 from the Middle of Lidl. Whilst this is a great price, the same steamer is listed on Robert Dyas’ website for the even lower price of £12. However, it is currently out of stock there and Lidl’s offer seems to be the cheapest currently available.
What are the benefits of steam cooking?
Steam cooking is one of the healthiest methods of cooking there is. Firstly, since there’s no need to add oil or butter, it’s a great way to make low-calorie meals. Secondly, when you steam vegetables they retain more of their vitamins and antioxidants, which can be lost when boiling them in water.
Steam cooking is also a great way to cook really tasty dishes without the need for much salt. It can also be a time, money and energy-saver. Simply pop the food in the steamer, leave it to cook and voilà! Steamed dishes generally cook more quickly than in an oven or on a stovetop, which means less energy is needed.
What can you cook in a steamer?
Steamers are really versatile – you can use them to cook vegetables, potatoes and rice but also meat, fish and even desserts. Steaming is one of the best ways to cook deliciously tender and tasty salmon. The Salter 3-Tier Steamer on sale at Lidl also includes a rice bowl so you can make perfectly fluffy rice.
