Food steamers put to the test

You can read our verdict on the Morphy Richards 3-tier steamer (model 48755) in our newly updated steamers review, which also includes results on Russell Hobbs, Sainsbury's and Tefal steamers.

Will a steamer change your eating habits? When we polled more than 1,900 Which? members, one in five told us the hope of eating healthier food would tempt them to buy a steamer or George Foreman grill. But only 14% of steamer owners we asked have actually changed their diet as a result of buying one.

That said, steaming meat, fish or vegetables is a easy way to get more flavour and goodness from your food as it helps to retain more nutrients such as water-soluble vitamins. Plus a steamer is able to tackle more food at a time than a microwave can.
