Steam your food healthy – steamers for vegetables and pasta
Steam cooking – there is no healthier way!
Steam cooking is the perfect way to prepare food if you care about preserving as many vitamins and minerals in your meals as possible. The flavour is held inside the steamer, just like the most important vitamins and minerals.
Steam cooking - cooking the gentle way
Using the steamer is always an option whenever food doesn't need to be browned over a high heat and when you're not looking for a crispy crust. Therefore it is ideal for vegetables of any kind and also for fish or poultry. Because the food doesn't lie directly in the water but is cooked by the hot steam, the flavour and vitamins remain largely intact. Prepare tender vegetables and succulent meats the easy way yet still enjoy the fullness of the flavour as well as a high-quality meal full of nutritional ingredients. The gentle cooking method which the steamer makes possible allows you to save on salt and spices as well as on fat. The finished dishes are not only healthy and tasty but are also simple and easy to digest.
Cooking in the steamer – the round pot with a sophisticated interior
Steamers work based on a simple principle, just like steam cookers. Food isn't submerged in the water but is cooked by the hot steam. This gentle and healthy way of cooking is made possible by an insert placed in the steamer. The vegetables or other foods lie in the sieve-like insert whilst the pot sits directly on the hob and is filled with water. The water is brought to the boil, the hot steam rises and envelopes the food being cooked. When it is ready the finished dish is taken out of the steam and can either be served straight onto the plate or further processed in some other way. The vegetable steamer can also be used to cook rice or pasta perfectly without losing any precious nutrients. Pasta cooks to al dente just as easily in the steamer as in the pasta pot and doesn't have to be carefully drained.
