      Great hub. My mother used to have a George Foreman Grill and used it a lot, up until she died, 2.5 years ago. Then we threw it out. But I would love to have my own someday. One nitpick on the yogurt maker capsule: I think you meant if you eat and not is. I believe it's a typo. Great hub. I love would love to these other appliances someday, too. Very informative.

      Hi Jill, Thanks for commenting. It is great to know that you like this article and it's helpful for you. I don't have enough idea about multi-tiered steamer and doesn't use it yet. I will research about this appliance and will try to update my post.

      This article is a good one for me to read right now as my husband has just been diagnosed with diabetes. I am steaming more vegetables than ever now just using a pot with a steaming pot on top, but a multi-tiered steamer would really save time and trouble.
