With a large 2.5 l bain marie bowl for scrumptious soups, desserts and sauces, this steamer accommodates a range of different dishes, designed with cook's-safe vent holes, to stop you burning your fingers.
The unique Flavour Booster adds a delicious aroma of herbs and spices, bringing even more taste to steaming. Simply pop your favourite herbs and spices into the booster, and let steam do the rest. The heat from the steam releases delicate aromas from the herbs and spices, which thoroughly infuse the food with their mouth-watering flavours.
The steaming tiers are numbered - you can find the number on each tray handle. The bottom steaming tier is 1, the middle is 2 and the top 3. Use one, two or three tiers while steaming and make sure that you add the tiers with higher numbers on top of tier 1. After use, you can stack the tiers and use less space for storing.
The 60-minute manual timer couldn't be simpler. Simply turn the dial to the number of minutes you plan to steam and you are good to walk away leaving your steamer to do all the work! Most vegetables are perfectly steamed in 10 - 20 minutes and after one or two trials, you should find what works best for you. The steamer switches off automatically after the set steaming time has come to an end.
Need to steam a large piece of food, like a whole chicken, or any dish that's too big for a single steaming compartment? Simply unclip the bottom of each basket to create a large single space. The steamer will do the rest for you, steaming thoroughly and consistently from top to bottom.
No matter what meal of the day you're cooking - breakfast, lunch or dinner - there are a range of different ways to use this handy steamer. This egg steaming rack is really handy - it can help you make the perfect "runny" eggs in the morning for a healthy and nutritious start to your day. Remember to make a small hole in each egg (a safety pin works) and place the eggs on the rack with the hole pointing upwards!
Each product in the range of Jamie's Tools by Philips Jamie Oliver comes with exclusive recipes from Jamie to help prepare a range of easy, fresh dishes that all the family will love.
For an extra healthy lunch or evening meal, this steamer locks in nutrients to deliver supreme taste in no time at all.
Just in case the water tank is empty, this steamer has an overheat and dry boil protection feature meaning you won't need to worry about ever ruining your steamer. The steamer should then be left to cool down for 10 minutes before adding more water and restarting your recipe.
"For me, it's about encouraging more people to enjoy cooking and to feel as comfortable and confident as possible using this kit. And, ultimately, I set out to design a range that I would be genuinely happy to have and use in my own kitchen. Every piece of kit from the Jamie's Tools range by Philips Jamie Oliver has a splash of lovely cornflower blue, the colour I chose to match the clean retro shapes we've used. This stuff is meant to be shown off, not hidden away in cupboards."
