If we want to eat better, incorporating techniques such as steam cooking is a way of prepare dishes in a much healthier way. But sometimes, lack of time or limited skills in the kitchen lead us to abandon this good purpose.
Fortunately, there is an ideal gadget for each type of situation, also for culinary dramas. At Amazon or El Corte Inglés we have found a whole selection of accessories and small appliances so that steam cooking is as easy as breathing:
First of all we have this Russel Hobbs that has 9 liters of capacity divided into 3 stackable containers that allow us to cook several foods at the same time and that also includes a one-liter bowl to prepare rice. It includes side water inlets in case we need to add more as we cook, along with a practical tray to collect the leftovers.
Their timer of up to 60 minutes makes the task much easier for the clueless and, in general, we are talking about a fairly simple small appliance that will help us create healthy recipes without too many complications. You will find it on Amazon for
