But perhaps most unexpected of all is how quickly and easily these sensational dishes can be prepared. Using an electric steamer is about as demanding as using a microwave oven -- you put the food in the steamer, set the timer, and walk away. There's no temperature to gauge, no worry about burning the food, and very little to clean up.
Steaming is an extraordinary cooking technique that reveals subtle flavors often cloaked by fat; it gives a particularly clean, bright flavor no other cooking method can match. It's a terrific way to cook an astonishingly broad range of foods, allowing you to serve fresh and flavorful food easily every day.
Cooking with Steam is the first major cookbook for today's electric steamers. Complete with cooking time charts and information about the varieties of electric steamers, here is all you need to know about getting great taste at the set of a dial.
