Red Microwave Multi Steamer

I bought a rice steamer months ago and use it all of the time and it's great. Fifteen minutes microwave cooking and it's done, no standing over the pan to make sure rice is not catching on the bottom.

Red Microwave Multi Steamer

I have only one problem with the steamer and that is it only just fits into my microwave and so would advise to check measurements before buying. I think it is for the larger family microwaves .

Disappointedby Arlene

Red Microwave Multi Steamer

I bought this in the Belfast store a few days ago. Disappointed for several reasons - There really should be a handle of some form to grip when bringing out of microwave - not very safe when it is piping hot as only a small lip to grip. Also although the outside steamer part is large the actual inset doesn't hold a lot of food and I really didn't think it steams as well as my on the hob steamer. The cauliflower was discoloured but not cooked through yet looked soggy! Lot of wasted space really as outer pot large but it is only for a few tablespoons of water yet inner steamer not that big.

Improvement in rice steamerby Marion Bailey

Red Microwave Multi Steamer

The old Lakeland "clear" steamer, they worked brilliantly for a short time then the body would crack. I replaced my last one with this updated red one, and I am completely delighted with it, it cooks the rice as well as the clear one did, and it is much more robust.

Red Microwave Multi Steamer

This cooks rice perfectly. Well it does until you have a senior moment and forget to add the water. Tried to cook rice without it, once I'd replaced the microwave, but just couldn't get the same result. A new steamer is now in place and, hopefully, will last many years. Sadly it's not idiot-proof! Great product. Wouldn't be without it.

Not a great design...by Tom

2 stars out of 5

Red Microwave Multi Steamer

I'm not sure this product was sufficiently tested... The handles on the sides are too small to grip easily. The Lakeland microwave ride cooker looks a better design. The handle on the top sticks up too high, so in many microwaves (with the lip near the door), it catches when you're picking it up. There are other, similarly priced microwave steamers out there that do a better job. 2 stars because it cooks fine and the colour is nice!

Difficult and dangerous to useby Elsie

Red Microwave Multi Steamer

You would not think something like this basic could be dangerous would you ? Read on - You will be surprised.... We have a Sharp 850W microwave which has an average (not small) sized oven and a normal turntable. The steamer has a ridiculous elevated lid which jams when putting it in the oven and when steamed and hot makes it a positive horror and dangerous to remove. Obviously this thing has not been trialed adequately and the shape of the lid is just daft. It does work but then so does a bowl and microwave cover.

A good quality steamer that does the job. Wish it was clear plastic though as it makes it easier to monitor water levels

sturdy product but....by Norman

Sturdy product but shame about the lid. The knob is almost impossible to grip, it just needs either to be a different shape or knurled. Otherwise very good.

After using this product, which is excellent in concept, I find that the knob is hard to grip and can easily slip from my grasp as I have arthritic fingers, maybe a mushroom shaped knob would be better and more safer to grip.

Could be more ergonomicby Kathleen

4 stars out of 5

Red Microwave Multi Steamer

Good little steamer. The plastic doesn't warp and drainage and vent holes are just right. Very little water needed and veg is cooked quickly. The design of the handle and rim could be better. It's not possible to lift it with one hand as the rim is narrow and the pot deep. The little knob handle on the lid is rather small and gets hot so it can be hard to get off. I find rice takes longer to cook than the instructions say it should.

Red Microwave Multi Steamer

I have now replaced my broken, clear multi steamer with this one. it is made from a much more flexible type of plastic and seems more robust, I use it all the time for rice and pasta. I also now have the saucepans in the same plastic and they are great too. Thanks Lakeland for improving on this product.

What a wonderful addition to my kitchen.by Moira

Red Microwave Multi Steamer

I had to replace my 40 year old rice pot after it disintegrated, I'm quite glad it did disintegrate as my new one is MARVELLOUS! I really looked forward to using this tonight for a light supper and I was not disappointed, it was so easy to use and with it doubling up as a rinsing tool too it cut down on pots. Part way through the rice being cooked I dropped some brocolli, carrot, red onions, ginger, garlic and mixed peppers into the post - we have just had a lovely supper with only one cooking pot used . . perfect. Lakeland, you produced another winner! Thank you :-)

Great product and great customer serviceby Carole Jonah

Red Microwave Multi Steamer

I had the previous multisteamer and this recently cracked and split from top to base, had good use out of it. I saw this new version and the reviews mentioned broken older version being replaced by Lakeland. I took my clear version into my local store and they exchanged it for this product. No quibbles and I didn't even have the receipt. Great customer service Lakeland, well done. This product makes the fluffiest rice.

revolutionised rice cookingby Joanna

5 stars out of 5

Red Microwave Multi Steamer

This has revolutionised my rice cooking. I resisted buying one of these before as I thought it was just another gadget that wouldn't work. However it does cook rice well and doesn't boil over. I've needed to increase the times of cooking suggested to get a softer rice and it can be a stickier end result than cooking in a pan, but this just needs adjustment and rinsing if necessary. The only downside is the small knob on the lid. If using ovengloves the lid is difficult to manoeuvre and can end up on the floor. I still give it full marks though.

Very happy with the new productby Mrs Dick

Red Microwave Multi Steamer

Having gone through 3 of the old clear plastic steamers I've tried their new red plastic steamer. So far I have steamed rice and chicken joints very successfully. The plastic seems more robust than the old version and hopefully will last a lot longer before cracking. Thanks Lakeland, great customer service as always.

Designed for all microwaves?by Ms HUBBARD

1 stars out of 5

Red Microwave Multi Steamer

Be warned, if you have a small microwave: goes into the oven fine, about 2mm to spare. No problem. But getting it out after cooking is not so good: it doesn't come out as easily as it goes in - you have to wiggle and jiggle. Unpleasant and unsafe - it's hot. Grasping this item with a cloth is hazardous because it is so slippy. Lid is a challenge to get off as it is shallow and hard to grip. I spent more that £17 on two items from this range: never again.

Taking the strainby Roger

Red Microwave Multi Steamer

Sent this as free replacement for the clear version, which cracked, in July 2012. (Why can't more shops have this excellent customer policy?). It has had extensive use, even used it as a strainer/colander, and no crackes or stains. It could become a family heirloom.

Replaced my old, worn, clear steamer with this one - courtesy of Lakeland. This is extremely robust and superb for rice amongst other things. Washes very well in top of dishwasher. 5* quality and service from Lakeland yet again.
