Design

This steamer has a five-liter glass cooking pot, a stainless steel steaming tray, and a glass lid with stainless steel trim if you dislike cooking in plastic. All components are dishwasher-safe for simple cleanup.

The LCD control panel’s start/stop, pause, and reheat buttons and its pre-programmed food settings make cooking simple. You can also manually set the controls for customized cooking.

The steaming system surrounds the food with steam from the top-down, cooking it quickly and evenly. The water tank is detachable to facilitate filling. The steamer tray’s two handles make it simple to remove the cooked food.

Performance

I’ve steamed tilapia, cod, rainbow trout, shrimp, scallops, and lobster, and they’ve all turned out PERFECT! The flavor is incomparably superior to frying, grilling, or baking, and the food is never dry or greasy.

The delicate flavor of the tilapia remains in the steam, which is so flaky. Scallops are tricky for me to pan fry and get perfect every time, but I’ve steamed them three times in this steamer, and they’ve come out perfect every time, with a sweet flavor and without being greasy complex or dry.

I tried lobster on the grill and in the oven. Again, it is difficult to be consistent (and it makes me cry if I mess it up, as lobster is not the cheapest seafood), and the grill takes away some sweetness with smokiness…but in the steamer…turn it on, dial to seafood, press start, and in 10 minutes it is PERFECT!All seafood can be cooked in 10 minutes (thin fish fillets may require 8 minutes, but a quick reference guide is provided for various food types).

Cleaning

It’s also a cinch to tidy up! For the most part, it consists of just a metal tray on which food is placed, a bowl, and a glass lid. Once the steaming is done, I turn the water tank upside down and put foil over the connector.
So I can use the remaining distilled water later (though I’m not sure I’m supposed to, it has no smell, and I’ve been steaming every few days) and then rinse it out thoroughly when it’s time to refill it.

Should you buy Cuisinart Digital Glass Steamer?

Thanks to this steamer, I can now consistently prepare food. It is incredibly well-made, and the large water reservoir is handy. I use bottled water rather than tap water because the water where I live is “harder.” The presets adequately functioned, and the stainless grating is rust-free and easy to clean. The base and lid are constructed primarily of sturdy glass. Oh, and the vegetables are so crisp and flavorful. Oh, and steamed dumplings in this dish are fantastic.

I am delighted with my purchase and its performance. A bit pricey but significantly superior to plastic alternatives. In addition, be sure to drain your reservoir and leave it upside down by the sink for a couple of minutes before storing it. Take your base to the sink and dump it to drain the water.
