Cannot live without This product is great, it is easy to clean and makes a busy hectic life so easy when it comes to dinnertime, Its containers are big so can steam large qty's if required or equally is great for a meal for one. Thank you Tefal for a great product! 27 January 2015
Great Product! Foods tasted so fresh . Easy to operate. Also love the warm feature. 09 December 2014
Steamer I've been looking everywhere for a steamer which has three plastic trays that are all the same size, so that it doesn't matter what order they are fixed onto the base. I thought this steamer solved that problem, but it doesn't as the trays are three different sizes. Very frustrating. However, it's a nice steamer and works well. 10 October 2014
Good steamer This is a replacement for my older steamer , the same product . Previous one had plenty of use , very reliable .. Large enough to cook a good selection of vegetables to perfection . Older steamer still working after 3 years but a little bit battered with excessive use , hence the replacement . 01 October 2014
Brilliant Just buying another as mine has broken after almost 3 years of constant use. The timer stopped working, and just stuck! Buying another as I have always been so pleased with it 02 September 2014
Let down by build quality Bought this 2 years ago to replace a Tefal steamer that we had as a wedding present and had used for 16 years. Unfortunately the new version is not as reliable: The baskets have a removable base that clips in. This is supposedly useful so you can steam something really big by stacking them without the bases, but in practice who does that ? Instead it is very annoying because the clips are very flimsy and the bases are forever falling out and needing re-clipping. The mechanical timer packed up after about 18 months. Didn't bother to return it as it just stays on indefinitely and so can still be used. Unfortunately I just dropped it and the plastic base has cracked so have to throw away. That is probably not its fault really, but I will buy a different model to replace it. 11 June 2014
Tefal VC101616 Steamer Good value for the money. One small problem we have experienced is that the timer sticks, but make sure that it starts ticking at the start and it is ok 15 April 2014
Fantastic steamer at the price I spent a lot of time researching steamers after my previous one failed. I've had this one for four months now and have been really pleased with it. Especially as I think I must have purchased it when it was being "price matched". I use the steamer several times a week. I find that veg like carrots take about 30 minutes to cook when using two fairly full baskets. I would allow about 15-20 minutes if just using one basket and/or for veg which takes less cooking. So far, I've had no problems with the durability of the baskets and lid. I put them in the dishwasher after each use and they are showing no signs of wear. The timer dial seems quite sturdy. I do only use the steamer for vegetables... so can't comment on how effective it is for other types of food. Recommended 27 March 2014
