New Gadget for the New Year

I know it’s frowned upon for a husband to get his wife cookware for Christmas but my husband knows I love to cook so he took a chance.  He got me a Tupperware SmartSteamer and I will admit it is pretty cool!  The steamer has several levels so you can steam a whole meal at one time.  I tried the maple salmon with snow peas and carrots and it was delicious.  The bottom level has a compartment for water, above that you place the salmon and on the top you put your vegetables.  It works that way for most recipes with the water then protein then veggies.  I was quite impressed with the ease of this meal and will definitely use it again.  Additionally it doesn’t take up a great deal of space in your kitchen.  However, I have two complaints.  First, the steamer alone will not make enough to feed my family of five.  This would be great if you were doing a meal for 1-3 people. Secondly, the cookbook that came with it did not give a lot of plant-based meal options.  I really love the idea of this steamer though so I will have to get creative and make my own recipes. Unfortunately, creativity in the kitchen is not my strong suit so we will see how that turns out.  If you are looking for a way to spruce up your meal making then I would definitely purchase a Tupperware SmartSteamer http://order.tupperware.com/coe-html/splash/smartsteamer.html.  My husband hit a home run with this one!
