An instruction book did not come with mine, how much water do i use for cooking in both bowls?

Asked by Gramma March 12, 2017
5
Answers

On the inside of the water reservoir, there are lines showing minimum and maximum water levels; I use maximum level if I'm cooking with both bowls. I will warn you though: you can FEEL these markings better than you can SEE them. Some dimwit at Oster didn't realize that most of us can't see white-on-white markings on the INSIDE wall of a steamer!! I would also contact Oster (info should be on the box and online) and make them send you an instruction book!

can you use just one of the containers or do you HAVE to use both of them?

Asked by Monie September 22, 2018
5
Answers

NO, you do NOT have to use both every time. If you only need to use one, put one food container on the base (after adding water to the reservoir), add your food, then the lid and start it. That is what I like about this appliance; I can cook 1 thing or 2! (If you want to steam 2 things, put the white ring on top of the bottom container, then the second one over the ring, then the lid.)

So, according to the oster brand team, that's a NO.

when water if out, where do you add the water??

Asked by JOan December 9, 2018
3
Answers

You can use one basket at a time, or stack both baskets, one on top of the other; they are removable from the base. I have never had to replenish the water while cooking in my Oster steamer, but I can't think of any reason why it couldn't be done. Just lift the baskets off the base, staying away from the steam to avoid being burned. Then slowly add more water as needed. Be aware that it will take a few minutes for the new water to heat and start producing steam. Remember, keep your arms, hands, and face away from the steam while you are doing this water addition!

Can you steam towels in this... strange question I know

Asked by picknick October 8, 2016

Answers

Not strange at all. I actually had the same question. They say no, but they have to. If you found something else inexpensive to steam your towels (for facials or massage, I assume?) please let me know.

Is this sold in Manhattan, KS store OR only online?

This product is also sold at Oster.com. Thank you!

Are the bottom tiers removable from the bottom of the baskets.

Asked by JOan December 9, 2018
2
Answers

Not sure I understand what you're asking, so I'll say this and hope it's what you are looking for: when you take this appliance apart, you will have the bottom piece which contains the water reservoir/heater and the timer, 2 food containers (are these what you're calling baskets?), a white ring which goes between the container/baskets ( IF you are using both at the same time ), and a clear plastic lid which goes on top. This is 5 separate pieces total. If you are steaming two things, assemble as pictured. If you are only steaming one food, use the base piece, one food container, and the lid. I clean the water reservoir carefully by hand and wash the other 4 pieces in the TOP rack of my dishwasher. Hopefully, in my own roundabout way, I've answered your question.

Older version of steamer was better
Customer review from oster.com logo
This newer, smaller steamer takes longer to steam food. Also, the timer stopped working after about 10 uses.

I have enjoyed my steamer for many years.
Customer review from oster.com logo
I’ve enjoyed my steamer for many years. I have steamed many vegetables and fish in it. I wouldn’t put one basket inside the other and less they are completely dry, I have had trouble pulling them apart. Other than that I love my steamer. If it is overused and washed in the dishwasher too many times the perforated holes at the bottom of the basket will eventually crack and break.

Overall this steamer is very cheaply made, especially the steamer's plastic containers! They are so thin that it could almost crack while drying them! It says dishwasher safe but i'm not going there! The unit itself is pretty good. I don't look for the food containers lasting very long at all, but then again, I only paid $20 for it, so, you pretty much get what you paid for. If you're looking for a well built steamer that will last, this isn't it. Lesson learned for being so frugal!

This is my 2nd unit and I do like the way it steams food. The shape of the bowls fit well in the dishwasher which I like better than the previous model shape and size. Only issue is the bowl material tends to crack after a year of use and the handles loose their attachment.
