Steaming is probably the healthiest way to cook food. Without the oil of frying and the charring of oven baking, it’s a great way to prepare fish or chicken that’s tender to the bite. When it comes to vegetables, there’s no comparison with boiling. Broccoli, cabbage carrots and most of the veg you have with a roast dinner or pasta keep much more of their flavour when they’re steamed, whereas boiling can suck the flavour and goodness – just look at the colour of the water when you’ve boiled your greens in it. We stock a wonderful range of self-contained steamers, so you don’t need to put them on the hob – simply load them up with raw food, add a bit of water and switch them on for perfect results. They come layered, too, so you can keep all the ingredients separate, which makes presentation on the plate all the better. And if you’re a brand-conscious person, you’ll know you’re on safe ground with names like Russell Hobbs, Weight Watchers and NaturoPure, so take a look at our collection and get steaming.
