Reviews describe the Oster 5711 Mechanical Food Steamer as a good value for the wide range of foods it can cook – from vegetables and grains to meat and shellfish. Owners say it's fast at cooking and easy to clean in the dishwasher. The water-level window and automatic shutoff make it easy to use, but the cooking time cannot be changed once it's set. We called Oster and verified that the plastic containers are BPA-free. This food steam is only available in white, and the manufacturer covers it with a one-year warranty. If you are willing to spend a little more for more programmable features, the Oster 5712 Digital Food Steamer (*Est. $40) also receives praise from owners.
