How to choose a steamer
Steam cookers are indispensable in a modern kitchen. They help us retain the flavor, color and vitamin content of foods essential to the nutritional value of foods. One way to tell steaming food is one of the healthiest ways to prepare food. There are many popular brands to browse if you need a steamer such as Moulinex, Kenwood, Hinari, Tefal and Morphy Richards and many more.
Steamers cook vegetables, non-vegetarian items like meat and fish and everything without changing the texture of the food. They retain the original flavor of a food and no vital nutrients are lost during cooking. There is no need to add oil in steamed foods, which would be a boon for health conscious people.
