Enjoy Healthy Steamed Foods at Home with Orka Steam Cookers

Updated on March 13, 2011

Are you looking for healthy ways to prepare food at home? It's a fact that steaming is one of the most healthful ways that food can be prepared. This cooking technique allows you to create delicious recipes without having to add butter, oil, or any other calorie laden ingredients to the foods you are preparing. Additionally, steaming preserves the nutrients and flavors of fresh foods, and also results in moist meals that are cooked thoroughly and evenly.

There are several ways to enjoy steamed foods at home. You can prepare steamed foods on the stove top, using a specially made steam pot, or any lidded pot in which you can place a rack. However, you don't have to use your stove to enjoy healthful and tasty steamed foods at home. Whether for the convenience or to avoid generating additional heat in the kitchen, many people prefer to steam foods using their microwave oven.

If you're looking for a container that you can use for either microwave steaming, be sure to check out Orka's multi-level steam cooker. This set is designed for the needs of busy home cooks in mind.
