The MicroGourmet Steamer will become a favorite tool for daily gourmet cooking. Healthy food and authentic flavours, every day!

The MicroGourmet Steamer is an innovative solution that allows steam cooking in the microwave oven in an easy, fast and healthy way. A unique product to steam in the microwave oven.
Steaming is a well known method that allows fat-free cooking while retaining nutriments, fatty acids and vitamins.
Steaming does not mean bland cooking. The colours are more vibrant, the texture stays firm, the natural flavours are better preserved and the herbs or condiments can develop their aroma fully. Add herbs, spices or low fat stock to the water to add a specific taste. You can also accompany your meals with sauces for a richer taste.
Steaming is perfect for the whole family – and a great way to introduce vegetables to children who will appreciate the festival of authentic colours and tastes on their plate.

Features and Benefits:
•Very easy to use: fill water, place food, stack, steam – yet it gives extraordinary and gourmet results.
•Truly steams all types of food in the microwave oven.
•Steams from fresh or frozen or to reheat.
•Steams vegetables and fruits without altering the look or texture. Ideal to soften the skin to peel.
•Is suitable for serving on the table: keep the Steamer Base on the Water Tray, serve the Colander Tray on the reversed Cover.
•Keeps food warm – keep the hot water in the Water Tray to keep food warm until serving. Or pour out the warm water if you wish to stop the cooking process (advisable for green vegetables) – food will still be kept warm up to 30min.
•Can stack two different types of food or prepare one whole meal thanks to the Colander Tray.
•Creates subtle flavour, by adding spices, herbs, low fat stock, essential oil or wine to the water in the Water Tray.
•Is very space saving compared to electric steamers – no plug to worry about – on the countertop or in the cupboard.
•Is easy to clean, dishwasher safe.

Special care for Water Tray:
