steamer definition and meaning

What is a "steamer"?

A steamer is a kitchen appliance used for cooking food by using steam. It typically consists of a pot or container with a platform or basket to hold the food above boiling water. As the water evaporates into steam, it cooks the food gently and evenly, retaining its nutrients and natural flavors. Steamers come in various types, including stovetop steamers that are placed on a burner and electric steamers with built-in heating elements. They are versatile appliances suitable for cooking vegetables, seafood, dumplings, and even desserts like puddings and cakes. Steamers are valued for their health benefits, as they require little to no added oil, making them an ideal choice for those seeking lighter, healthier cooking methods.
