  • Lightweight and very portable, the unit is constructed of a serviceable stainless steel basewith sturdy plastic stackable inserts which can accommodate a surprising amount of food.All components are very easy to clean and the entire appliance takes up a minimum of space when stored.
  • Clear plastic is not dish washer safe
  • Apparently the manufacturer tightened the base too tight and the PLASTIC base is cracked.

What customers say about "Control"
Hamilton Beach 37530A Digital Food Steamer
  • I love that you can make steamed rice without having to watch it, I conveniently put the rice in the steamer listen for the timer and its done.
  • Digital timer is awesome! It even alerts you if water is getting low.
  • It "beeps" when plugged it and turned on and it "beeps" when turned off and unplugged.There is even a 'delay start timer"...steam whenever you want to
  • I liked the timer and it beeped when it was low on water. all in all very pleased.
  • Only thing I do not like about this steamer is the timer does not go pass an hour.

What customers say about "Functions"
Hamilton Beach 37530A Digital Food Steamer
  • The timer and automatic "keep warm" (fantastic feature I'll never burn the rice again) make it a breeze.
  • At the end of the steam cycle, the unit began timing for the one-hour keep warm setting, which it does automatically.
  • I absolutely love the delay function, just set the cooking time and then press the delay button. You can set it for a minimum of 30 minutes up to 24 hours maximum
  • The only problem is that the alarm for water is not strong
