Q & As

Magimix 11578 Steamer 4.1 5 14 14
Good buy I wanted a steamer that would last a bit longer than previous ones I had owned (either bottom basket or motor let me down). After reading the reviews I was not so sure! But ...... The steamer base cleans beautifully with vinegar even in our very hard water area. The vegetables take the time I expected after owning steamers and using them most days. The whole thing is robust and stores fairly easily. So I 'm a happy little bunny. 02 September 2014
Robust but slow Firstly this was expensive but seems robust and all stainless steel which has not rusted yet like another reviewer. However it is v slow although 1900 watts. I had a Tefal before 2000 watts which was faster. This steamer takes longer to heat the water to boiling than my kettle so I fill it with boiling water from kettle before putting the food on. Makes a big difference to green veg. Still slower than my old machine though. The old Tefal is no longer available or I would have bought another of those. I presume being so solid it will last and it has a 3 year guarantee anyway which is a plus. The baskets are quite large for the sink when washing but I suppose its for large fish etc. Can't say I'd want steamed chicken but you never know. Would take a week!!! 22 April 2014
Not a good quality stainless steel I actually quite like the steamer design, it big enough to put a chicken in, and it use less water then others. But there is something really disappointed me. I only used once and second day there are some parts near those holes at the bottom of the basket get rusty! I couldn't believe that the quality of stainless steel is so bad in terms of this price. Consider my health, I have no choice but return it. Magimix pls use a good quality stainless steel!! 31 December 2013
Disappointed The steamer certainly does what it says on the tin... it steams. It is a very robust steamer, good looking and large enough to take a small whole fish. However I find that it takes a long time to steam potatoes and green vegetables. I was disappointed that the cooking time was longer than I expected. I even checked I had got it on the correct setting. This is by far the most expensive steamer I have bought, and unfortunately the additional cost hasn't given me any extra benefits. 25 May 2013
Best steamer Decided to buy a new steamers but after previous experience over the years of purchasing cheaper ones I decided to invest in this steamer after reading the reviews when it arrived I thought it was a bit big for two people but I decided to keep it and I'm glad I did its excellent the food taste lovely easier to use and dish washer safe . It does stain inside when water is emptied but I wash mine with washing up liquid and some vinegar on a dish sponge as advised on instruction for cleaning and it works. Definetely worth the purchase 13 March 2013
Works well but stains This is generally a lovely product. It works well and generally looks good. However, after its third time in the dishwasher, the lower basket is now badly tarnished and unsightly. This is a shame as the basket is quite large and washing it by hand every day would be quite a chore. So if you have a dishwasher and you'd rather not make more work for yourself, I'd recommend saving yourself a little money and buying a plastic steamer. 05 March 2013
Best Steamer Ever Although this is more expensive than I would've liked to have paid but I've had it since before Christmas and all i can say is - wow! Def worth the investment - Christmas Dinner was a breeze. Easy to clean and stack away - really well built. 17 January 2013
I'ts nice to get something rioht for a change.. My previous steamer was a plastic model, when it broke after about six months, i was thinking of writing to them claim a new one, but thought that the new one would be just like the broken one so i cut my losses and bought aMagimax 11578. We gave a lot of thought about it as it was a bit expensive,but what joy weve had since, its so easy to use and the food realy keeps it's flavour and keeping warm till the meat or laying the table is complete is a real bonus. so well done an excellent product. 11 December 2012
