Eat Your Veggies

Posted In: Blog, RV Lifestyle, RV Products

When our bathroom scale started looking like the national debt counter, we began exploring more healthy ways to cook. Towards this goal, one of the best kitchen gadgets we’ve found is the Chef’n Sleekstor VeggiSteam Silicone Steamer (http://goo.gl/2IbB8n). Out with the Fry Daddy – in with the Steam Mama! This little gadget helps you lose weight in the most delicious fashion imaginable.

The Sleekstor is a simple vegetable steamer that works like a charm. It’s great for an RV since it takes up very little storage space, and is easy to clean. Even though it’s microwave safe it also works with propane heat (which is how we typically use it on our Airstream stove). It’s nonstick, and if we had a dishwasher in our Airstream we’d wash it there without worry.

The “secret” is in the silicone. The steamer is constructed of heat resistant silicone, another modern material that’s improving our lives. (I guess if we’re giving a Nobel Prize to the guy who invented microfleece, we should also give one to whoever concocted silicone). It withstands heat up to 650 degrees Fahrenheit. It won’t scratch nonstick surfaces, so it’s safe for all of your cooking pots.

The Sleekstor is so easy to operate, even I can do it. You simply place a little water in a small pot, insert the steamer, and place your veggies on top. In about 5 minutes you can have perfectly steamed broccoli. More dense veggies like Brussels sprouts take just a few minutes longer.

The Sleekstor is easily stored - even in the tiny curved overhead compartments on our Airstream. (Click the pic to get your own - your own steamer, not an Airstream.)

The results are both delicious and healthy. Steaming is among the best ways to cook vegetables. It adds no calories, and all nutrients remain intact. It retains the full flavor of the vegetable. We sometimes give our steamed broccoli a dash of zero calorie spray butter and we’re good to go. (Some of you might want to add a little lemon juice too.)

The Chef’n Sleekstor VeggiSteam Silicone Steamer is one of the most useful healthy cooking kitchen gadgets we’ve ever purchased. Recommended.
