Here are several tips for you to use a food steamer wisely and cook the dishes tasty for your family:

1. Don’t add too much water

Water is the most essential component of steam cooking. We should check and adjust the amount of water before adding it. 

2. Boil the water first

We need to boil the water in the first place before steaming. Then, add your food and start to steam it once the water is boiling. You might need to turn the heat up or down to look after the food. 

3. Don’t steam for too long

This is the most challenging moment when steaming the food. You will worry that you cannot prepare and serve all the food together. Don’t panic, just leave your food in the pot and they will become soggy. After that, you pick a bowl and fill it up with ice water, place the food inside it and the food will be kept crisp.

4. Enhance the steam by using stock and herbs

Be creative! You can steam the food by using chicken or vegetable broth instead of plain ole water. You may add some seasonings like salt or lemon to the water before boiling. Herbs also can be added to the water to make the food different.

5. Make sure the seal is air-tight

The food must be actually touched by the steam. You have to pay attention to the lid closing because it will be hard to cook the food if the steam escapes. You can attempt to add a tea towel between the top of the steamer and the lid if you steam the food using a steam basket on the stove.

6. Prepare the food before steaming

While waiting for the food, you can add some ingredients to the mix, such as herbs, spices, garlic. Also, you may add some seasonings to your food to make it taste better.

Wishing to be a good chef among your family members or friends? Go and purchase a good food steamer at your nearby supermarket or shopping mall to prepare a liberal table. (You also can click the shopee and lazada link to buy one !)
