This steamer has three tiers so you can steam different food types simultaneously. The large handles on the baskets makes carrying them easy - and once the steaming cycle is complete, it automatically switches to keep warm, which is handy.

Find out how the 17910 digital food steamer fared in the Which? test lab in our full steamers review. We've tested a variety of models on how well they can steam cook different vegetables, chicken, potatoes and rice.

Steaming meat, fish or vegetables is a relatively easy way to get extra 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.
