Steamer or Bain Marie

Last time I was home I bought a wonderful 3-tier food steamer, also known as a Bain Marie. You fill the bottom part with water to halfway, then whatever you want to steam goes in the next two tiers which have holes in them to allow the steam to cook the food.
It's a marvellous ( and fat free!) way to cook - especially vegetables. I also have a pressure cooker which I bought in Dartys here but that softens the veg a bit too much and the goodness and vitamins go in the water although of course it's great for soup.
Anyone else use a steamer?

Re: Steamer or Bain Marie

Used a steamer for years, in fact I brought mine with me from the UK.

I once had a pressure cooker, but didn't like it as it scared me when the steam came out of the top!!! Really put off one, when my mum's blew the lid off which crashed down and smashed her cooker and splattered food all over the kichen.

I used one for years in the UK and regret not bringing it with me when I moved here. Don't like the electric versions, like the old fashioned ones that go on the top of the stove.

Where did you get it from? I always used to buy stuff like that from T J Hughes but sadly since their demise I don't know where to buy my stuff!

Re: Steamer or Bain Marie

Val, I'm waiting for a student to come soon but later this evening I will ring mum and ask her.
Mum also has a steamer and when she bought it, it cost 25. That was last year. And when she got one for me this year the price had gone up to 32! Still a wonderful purchase though.

I've never seen the electric sort. Watch this space though - going to post some info after I've rung mum.
