I've only used this steamer a few times for veggies, but so far it's great! -The water heats up and boils fast, and veggies cook very quickly (even faster than the instruction booklet says). -When using both tiers, food appears to cook evenly. (I was afraid the bottom would cook more than the top.) -All pieces of this appliance are super easy to clean, although the colored juices left in the water can stain the base if not wiped out somewhat soon after use. There were really only two *slightly* negative things I found with this steamer: -The timer ticks even when the appliance is unplugged (you might be confused and think it's cooking when it's not) -I couldn't find any instructions on how much water is needed for different foods. The first time I filled the water compartment to between the 250ml and the maximum level, and the water boiled up over the veggies and leaked out the side. When I filled it to between the minimum and 250ml, however, everything was fine. I used this to steam sugar snap peas (about 7 min) and they turned out a beautiful bright green color, which was awesome. They usually lose color when I cook them other ways. I also used it for sliced mushrooms, and in 15 minutes they were very well cooked. I love that this is a super easy and healthy way to prepare foods and can't wait to try different things, like fish! I received this item at no cost for my honest and unbiased review.

I am quite unhappy with this steamer. The wattage is too low. It sometimes takes as much as 10 minutes to provide steam, and the steam it provides is not abundant enough to cook efficiently. The maximum timer setting is 75 minutes. Which was not enough to cook four russet potatoes. I had to restart the timer for another cycle. Two hours plus to cook four potatoes! This is only using the first tier.

I bought the steamer thinking it was "instant steam" like the old 4711/12 & 5711/12 Oster steamers, which I owned. Those were great. The produced huge amounts of steam, instantly. You could have cooked the four russets in those older models, in 20 minutes or less.

This new steamer is NOTHING like the old steamers. Avoid this model.

Need manual for my 4711.

Comments about OSTER 1016234 Oster 5 Qt White Food Steamer (CKSTSTMD5-W):

I just got it . How can I get a manual? It does carrots and broccoli great. I must have tried the wrong kind of rice (Instant?) because 2 hours of steaming still didn't cook it.

Perfect for meal preppers!

By shawnababy18

Comments about OSTER 1016234 Oster 5 Qt White Food Steamer (CKSTSTMD5-W):

This was such a convenient and easy product! I am a fitness competition who does a lot of healthy meal prep, so this steamer can in so handy for my contest prep! I could cook my protein and my veggies in one step...I loved how functional and easy to use it was, although it took me a minute to figure out how everything worked when I first used it. The only thing I would change would be the compartment size, so I could cook more. But other than that the clean up was so easy and my chicken was moist and juicy and vegetables soft and tender. I was glad I was given this product as an opportunity to sample it because I enjoyed it very much!

The Oster double tiered food steamer is a great addition to any kitchen! It is easy to use and easy to clean. We are trying to eat healthier these days as well as trying to cook and eat at home more often. This steamer allows us to cook our protein and veggies at the same time, which is a big time saver. It was also great to not have to turn on our oven during the hot summer!

An easier way to eat healthy!!

By debholla

from Kingman, AZ, United States

Comments about OSTER 1016234 Oster 5 Qt White Food Steamer (CKSTSTMD5-W):

This appliance looks streamlined and stores efficiently. I rated it lower on durability because of the thickness of the plastic. I'm scared to death it's going to crack. It's a good value because all Oster products are. I like the timer, and was waiting for a ring or some type of alarm when time ran out but didn't hear anything. I've cooked vegetables, chicken, pork and find the components easy to clean. All in all, I think this is a good size for an older couple, a dorm room maybe but not for family sized meals. It is however perfect for my needs and I will recommend it to my friends. I have added a lot of fresh and frozen veggies to my shopping list as a result. Another good job, Oster! I received this steamer to test, and was so happy to try it out!

Overall a good solid product

By Surhoff88

from Kelso, WA, United States

Comments about OSTER 1016234 Oster 5 Qt White Food Steamer (CKSTSTMD5-W):

Overall this is a good product. It offers a great healthy way to cook a large variety of different foods. You don't have to use oil in a pan to prepare a meal. Having two seperate tiers allows you the ability to cook two different foods at once. The fact it is dishwasher safe is very nice, there's nothing worse than a bunch of dirty dishes you have to wash by hand after a nice meal. The price is great for what this product offers. The only downside is that it is a bit underpowered, but with it's small size, I feel that is understandable. When using both tiers I found the top took a bit longer to cook, and some items took quite a while to cook completely. Potatoes took a long time, but then again this is a pretty compact unit. As long as you're aware of its capabilities I think this is a great solution for anyone looking to add some healthy cooking to their diet. The way it cooks vegetables is hard to beat.

Enjoying my steamer!

By Lisacfoster

from Petal, MS, United States

Comments about OSTER 1016234 Oster 5 Qt White Food Steamer (CKSTSTMD5-W):

I've really enjoyed this steamer. It makes it easy to cook healthy meals. There are a few drawbacks but I will continue using it. The second time I used it I ended up with water all over my counter because I could not see the full line very well (it's white on white) and must've overfilled it. I haven't done it again now that I'm used to it. It can also be difficult to clean. Sometimes the base that holds the water gets dirty but the cord is attached so you can't immerse it in water. Also, sometimes food gets stuck in the holes in the plastic bowls. Otherwise, I am happy with this product. I received it free in exchange for this review.

Great Small Steamer

By Dave Roach

from Kentucky, United States

Comments about OSTER 1016234 Oster 5 Qt White Food Steamer (CKSTSTMD5-W):

I received this Steamer about a month ago and have used it several times in that month. It is very easy to use and does a great job with all types of foods, veggies especially. I found lots of recipes online that made it easy for me to cook whole meals for me and my wife easily and I could walk away and work on other things. I would purchase this model for small families who want to eat healthier. I did receive this item as a free trial to review it, but I'd feel the same way had I paid for it.

Double Steamer Works Well

By guitar33mdm

Comments about OSTER 1016234 Oster 5 Qt White Food Steamer (CKSTSTMD5-W):

I received this product a month ago as part of a free test/trial. The product worked well as an entry level product and steamed the food as advertised. This product was easy to clean and put together. The only complaints I had were the lack of features. There is an egg timer with an indicator light that would be better if there was a "ding" when the product was done. I am rating this product four stars.

Great for single serve healthy meals.

By JaviAir

from Santa Fe, NM

Comments about OSTER 1016234 Oster 5 Qt White Food Steamer (CKSTSTMD5-W):

The steamer is much larger than it appears, however it stores very compact. The overall size and dual steam chambers make it the ideal size for single serve meals. It is to small for family size meal preparation. I did find it slow to warm up and create steam in order to begin cooking the food. Some foods took longer than expected to cook. It seemed to work better for steaming vegetables, as meats and seafood (shellfish) took a long time to cook. Fish also left a smell in the steam chamber that took several cooking cycles to clear up. Steamed food tasted fresh. Overall it is a good product for healthy meal preparation if one is not in a hurry.

Super easy to use!

By Sharmarie513

from Middleburg, FL, United States

Comments about OSTER 1016234 Oster 5 Qt White Food Steamer (CKSTSTMD5-W):

The food steamer was extremely easy to use. The booklet has a chart showing you the approximate time it takes to steam certain foods. All you have to do is put water in the bottom to the line marked, put your food in and set the timer. The steam bowls seem a bit flimsy but I haven't had any issues with them. I'm trying to make healthy meals and this is perfect for that. The veggies I've made come out perfect!! Just chop them up and put them in! The only problem is the food can be a bit bland, so you need to season it afterwards. This is also very easy to clean and store.

Simple and quick!

By Melrose13125

from McAllen, TX, United States

Comments about OSTER 1016234 Oster 5 Qt White Food Steamer (CKSTSTMD5-W):

When I received this steamer it was smaller than I expected. I had a hard time believing that my larger vegetables including asparagus and long cut zucchini would be able to fit. Once I opened the box and set the steamer up for use, I was pleasantly surprised with how much food actually fit. The set up was very easy and includes an instruction manual. I found that the recommended cook time for most of the vegetables was exaggerated and cooked in almost half of that time. It's important to keep a close eye on your veggies so they don't over cook but since the steamer is clear and doesn't cloud or fog up, it's easy to see their progress. At the end of all of it, the cleanup is quite simple and the veggies came out tasting great. The only thing I would change would be an automatic off button rather than having to move the timer all the way to zero if you set it for more time than is needed. The other recommendation I would have is to allow the water reservoir to be removed and washed separately as well since you have to wipe it down with a cloth. I really like this steamer and for the price I think it is a great deal. I can imagine using this for a long time to come. It should be noted that I received this product as a sample to review.

Easy to use and works great

By Johnnydrummer

Comments about OSTER 1016234 Oster 5 Qt White Food Steamer (CKSTSTMD5-W):

The double-tiered food steamer is a great way to cook a steamed meal quickly and efficiently. It's very easy to use and performs as expected. It's well made and will look good on the counter. Only a couple of cons: be careful with the fill level, as I had a problem with water boiling up into the bottom container even at the recommended high mark, and the bowls are made of thin plastic, so handle with care. Apart from that, if you enjoy steamed food this is the way to go. Disclaimer: I received this product for review purposes. Still, I'd buy one if I cooked this way often.

The streamer works amazing. I really can't say enough how well it cooks everything. It's smaller than expected but that turned out to be great for storage and I can still fit a whole meal for my family's for four in this thing easily. I do wish it was digital but this does work fine and I'm sure if it was digital I would worry more about rinsing out the basin that holds the water. Using, clean up, and storage is so easy with this steamer. I did receive this steam to do use and review.

Way Better Than I First Initially Thought

By Michelle76

from Roxbury Township, NJ, United States

Comments about OSTER 1016234 Oster 5 Qt White Food Steamer (CKSTSTMD5-W):

I received this product as a part of a promotional package and upon receiving it i thought it was going to be bigger. Once i took it out of the box it was very easy to assemble and plugged it in right away. I had purchased Salmon, which i had never tried before to steam it. The product is sleak looking and heated up right away. Once I read the instructions i loaded the salmon in and the steamer went to work. It said not to season it (which i would have liked to do, but did it after the steamer was done). The steamer containers (for the food) are durable and able to steam both the top item and the bottom item within just a few minutes. I wish the place on he bottom when you put the water was marked with how much water it needs terms of minutes not the amount in liters. I wasn't sure if the amount of water i put in was going to be enough or too much (it ended up that i was fine). The steamer was easy to clean (once cooled off) and fit in my cabinet not taking up too much space. I like this product because you do not really have to watch your food cook, you can put it out and turn it on and it turns off in the right amount of time. Once less thing on the stove during dinner prep makes the kitchen a cooler place.

Great little Steamer!

By Caspersmom

Comments about OSTER 1016234 Oster 5 Qt White Food Steamer (CKSTSTMD5-W):

This is a very nice little steamer. The two tiers make it very easy to cook 2 veggies at one time. The unit takes up very little counter space which is also a nice feature. We eat steamed veggies almost every day so having 2 separate tiers works out very well for us. I put my carrots in the bottom and the quicker cooking veggies in the top and they are done at about the same time. The unit looks nice and has worked out well for us. I received this product as a sample to review.

Easy to use and clean up

By Sarah1129

from Colorado, United States

Comments about OSTER 1016234 Oster 5 Qt White Food Steamer (CKSTSTMD5-W):

I was excited to try the Oster Double Tiered Food Steamer. I thought this was a good product to prepare healthy side dishes. It was a little smaller than I expected so I had to cut up the vegetables a bit to make it work, but overall I was pleased. It is very easy to use. I had never used a steamer like this and it was not difficult. As far as convenience goes, this was perfect for our family. I was able to steam vegetables without worry while preparing the rest of the meal. My biggest complaint about this product is that it isn't able to steam rice. We eat a lot of rice in our house and being able to use the steamer to also steam rice would be very helpful. Finally, this product is dishwasher safe and that it a lifesaver! I received and tested this product for free but that did not influence my review.

Great tool for healthier meals

By frecklelily1223

from Fort White, FL, United States

Comments about OSTER 1016234 Oster 5 Qt White Food Steamer (CKSTSTMD5-W):

Upon receiving the steamer I was a little shocked by how small it was. We are a family of four and I thought that this size steamer would be more suitable for a family of three or less. Setup was a breeze. All of the pieces fit perfectly together like a puzzle. I like how it gives you the option of using both baskets or just one at a time. I also liked how there were line indications for minimum and maximum amounts of water in the bottom of the machine. I looked over the instructions just to get a feel of what to put in the steamer and the proper times. My first attempt was putting Tilapia in the top container and frozen vegetables in the bottom container. I set the timer that is located on the machine and walked away. Fifteen minutes later my meal was done. Since my first attempt I have made hard-boiled eggs, chicken, and shrimp in the steamer. Clean up is simple. I put all of the plastic baskets in the top rack of my dishwasher. Disclaimer: I received this product in return for an honest review. All of the opinions expressed here are my own.

Comments about OSTER 1016234 Oster 5 Qt White Food Steamer (CKSTSTMD5-W):

This little steamer has revolutionized my cooking! I put chicken, salmon, or other fish in the bottom bin and broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, zucchini, onions, portabella mushrooms and green peppers on the top.... sprinkle with my favorite spices and then go sit down and wait 30 minutes for dinner to be ready. Amazing! Delicious! Easy! Healthy! Great for the diet! What could be better??? I just want to know how to get an extra set of bins because I use it every day and it would be great to have one to use while the other is in the dishwasher. Any suggestions?
