Steamer is a convenient device forcooking healthy and delicious food. The very first steamers were intended for cooking on fire. In Asia, still use traditional devices, which are multi-tiered bamboo baskets, mounted on a pot of boiling water.
Most Europeans prefer electric steamers. These devices are made of metal and plastic and operate from an electrical network.
One of the most effective modern assistants in the kitchen is the steamer Teflal Vitamin Plus. This multi-tier machine allows you to quickly prepare breakfast, lunch or dinner for a family of three.

Heating is controlled by sensors and microcircuits. On the outside of the control panel there is a timer, a light indicator and a "Vitamin +" button. If you press this button, the "Tefal" steam cooker will cook almost twice as fast due to more intensive steam extraction.
The heating element is installedturbo ring. This element, after 30 seconds after switching on the device, begins to pass through the steam, which rises through the special channels of the baskets with food.
Steamer "Tefal" is equipped with three baskets,which are installed on each other. Between the baskets are divided by pallets with holes. These details can be removed if something large is prepared, for example a whole chicken.

Our breakfast will consist of rice porridge, dietary chicken meat and three eggs.
First fill the water tank to the maximum level. It is desirable that the water is clean or stationary. So less formed scale.
In the second basket, which is set tofirst, we place a bowl for rice, filled with 300 milliliters of boiling water. In boiling water we cover 150 grams of pre-washed white long-grain rice and add a tablespoon of salt.
In the uppermost steam bowl we lay eggs. And cover the steamer with a lid.
Now set the timer for 25 minutes, turn on the "VITAMIN +" mode and calmly going to work. Food should not be stirred and, in general, you can forget about a steamer for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, hard-boiled eggs are prepared. To get them, you just need to remove the top basket, and put the lid on the middle.
After 5 minutes, remove the basket with the breasts. And after five minutes turn off the steamer and get the rice.
