The multi tier steaming tower lets you cook different meal courses at the same time. Steam fish, chicken or vegetables in one container, while steaming in a second, dedicated tray rice, cous cous, steel cut oatmeal or other grains. It tenderly cooks proteins, vegetables and whole grains. Double up with The Biggest Loser Steamer + Rice Cooker featuring super quick steam in less than 30 seconds so you won’t be kept waiting. Check your water level through the indicator and simply add more through either of the 2-sided exterior water openings. You don’t even have to remove the containers to refill during cooking. There is a 60 minute timer that rings loudly and then shuts the steamer off automatically. For extra safety measures, there is a boil dry alert that cuts the steamer off if the water accidently runs dry. The 3 quart see through containers both let you see what’s cooking.
