Enjoying my steamer!I've really enjoyed this steamer. It makes it easy to cook healthy meals. There are a few drawbacks but I will continue using it. The second time I used it I ended up with water all over my counter because I could not see the full line very well (it's white on white) and must've overfilled it. I haven't done it again now that I'm used to it. It can also be difficult to clean. Sometimes the base that holds the water gets dirty but the cord is attached so you can't immerse it in water. Also, sometimes food gets stuck in the holes in the plastic bowls. Otherwise, I am happy with this product. I received it free in exchange for this review.

Great for single serve healthy meals.The steamer is much larger than it appears, however it stores very compact. The overall size and dual steam chambers make it the ideal size for single serve meals. It is to small for family size meal preparation. I did find it slow to warm up and create steam in order to begin cooking the food. Some foods took longer than expected to cook. It seemed to work better for steaming vegetables, as meats and seafood (shellfish) took a long time to cook. Fish also left a smell in the steam chamber that took several cooking cycles to clear up. Steamed food tasted fresh. Overall it is a good product for healthy meal preparation if one is not in a hurry.

I love my steamer!This little steamer has revolutionized my cooking! I put chicken, salmon, or other fish in the bottom bin and broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, zucchini, onions, portabella mushrooms and green peppers on the top.... sprinkle with my favorite spices and then go sit down and wait 30 minutes for dinner to be ready. Amazing! Delicious! Easy! Healthy! Great for the diet! What could be better??? I just want to know how to get an extra set of bins because I use it every day and it would be great to have one to use while the other is in the dishwasher. Any suggestions?

Perfect for meal preppers!This was such a convenient and easy product! I am a fitness competition who does a lot of healthy meal prep, so this steamer can in so handy for my contest prep! I could cook my protein and my veggies in one step...I loved how functional and easy to use it was, although it took me a minute to figure out how everything worked when I first used it. The only thing I would change would be the compartment size, so I could cook more. But other than that the clean up was so easy and my chicken was moist and juicy and vegetables soft and tender. I was glad I was given this product as an opportunity to sample it because I enjoyed it very much!

A big disapointmentI was a proud owner of a 5712 Steamer with a digital timer and when it finally gave up the ghost after 5 years of daily use I wanted to buy another Oster product. Oster's web site says the 5712 is no longer being made & suggested this model as a replacement. What a big disappointment. It's an inferior product in every way imaginable. Digital vs analog timer, OK :(. 5 vs 6 quart, ok I’ll cut my food up into smaller sizes ... But what caused me to return it was the plastic taste of everything I cooked in it. The 5712 is still the gold standard, but I’m looking elsewhere to find its match.

Not Recommended - Designed Well, But Low Power!I am quite unhappy with this steamer. The wattage is too low. It sometimes takes as much as 10 minutes to provide steam, and the steam it provides is not abundant enough to cook efficiently. The maximum timer setting is 75 minutes. Which was not enough to cook four russet potatoes. I had to restart the timer for another cycle. Two hours plus to cook four potatoes! This is only using the first tier.
I bought the steamer thinking it was "instant steam" like the old 4711/12 & 5711/12 Oster steamers, which I owned. Those were great. The produced huge amounts of steam, instantly. You could have cooked the four russets in those older models, in 20 minutes or less.
This new steamer is NOTHING like the old steamers. Avoid this model.

Easy to use and clean upI was excited to try the Oster Double Tiered Food Steamer. I thought this was a good product to prepare healthy side dishes. It was a little smaller than I expected so I had to cut up the vegetables a bit to make it work, but overall I was pleased. It is very easy to use. I had never used a steamer like this and it was not difficult. As far as convenience goes, this was perfect for our family. I was able to steam vegetables without worry while preparing the rest of the meal. My biggest complaint about this product is that it isn't able to steam rice. We eat a lot of rice in our house and being able to use the steamer to also steam rice would be very helpful. Finally, this product is dishwasher safe and that it a lifesaver! I received and tested this product for free but that did not influence my review.
