If we talk about how a steamer differs frommultivark, it is worth mentioning the presence in it of several containers having different purposes. That is, the user has the opportunity to cook several dishes at the same time. The complete set of the multivark includes only one bowl, the volume of which is usually 2.5-4.5 liters, while it can be cooked only one dish at a time. The cooking process in both units is very slow, but the steamers in this sense work a little faster. At nominal power, both of these devices are about the same, but for a multivarker a little more power is required, since cooking in it takes longer.
