About Steaming Food & Food Steamers
If you want to loose weight, get healthy or just stay healthy theres nothing like fresh fruits, vegetables, lean meats and poultry to help you. A lot of the secret to keeping these foods healthy is the preparation. For example, broiled meats are going to be much healthier for you than fried meats. And steamed fresh vegetables are a lot healthier than boiled or canned vegetables. This is where a food steamer comes in handy.
A food steamer, or steam cooker, cooks the food with steam (surprise!) which helps to preserve the vitamins and minerals in the food. Boiling leaches most of them out of the food. For this reason steamers are very popular with vegetarians and those on macrobiotic and raw food diets. But you dont have to be on one of those diets to enjoy the benefits of a good food steamer.
A lot of Chinese cooking is done in a steamer. You can cook just about any kind of food in a steamer and the beauty of them is that they are easy to clean up. Another benefit is that they dont make the kitchen hot like an oven does and they dont require a lot of energy to operate.
Steam cookers work on the same premise of having a tray just above the water. The tray has holes in it or is slotted to let them steam rise up to the food.
With the multi-compartment and tiered steamers, you could actually cook several parts of the meal, or even the whole meal in the steamer all at once. For instance, if you had a 3 tiered steamer, you could cook your vegetables on one tier, your protein on another, and even your bread or desert on another.
