OBX 5.0 out of 5 stars I love the fact that you can sync two different types of foods and have them finish at the same time. Everything was delicious. There will be a while of getting used to the setting and which times work best for our tastes and preferences, but that's to be expected. The stainless steel makes it very easy to clean up. It can't hold smells, even with fish or shrimp (which we cooked last night). The water reservoir seems to be huge and holds more than enough water for the entire cycle.

I haven't tried using the whole tray as a single steamed item, but I'm looking forward to crab legs very soon. It was awful to clean, and the smell was never quite gone. This is a whole different experience.I spent a few days researching steamers and this one just made the most sense. We have made 4 meals in it now and are thrilled. The dual zone and sync feature are what put it over the top for me. Also, it is very easy to clean. Just put everything but the base in the dishwasher. Keep in mind it makes a slight noise when running and that is normal. We called their customer service and they were very helpful.I had it exchanged with another unit that works perfectly. I steam vegetables a lot and this has been great for that. When I do Artichokes I slice them in half, put them on the steaming rack instead of the steam containers and put the large lid on. If I'm going to grill them I let them steam on high for 15 minutes. If I'm just steaming them to eat I let them go for about 20 to 22 minutes and they come out perfect. I have steamed whole fish with great success and am experimenting with other things to steam. So far it has worked flawlessly for me once I had the replacement model.But that one was really bad. When it came I turned it on with water and everything by Manual Book. BUT. it stop working after 2 minutes. I plugged it in different socket and it stop working in 1-2 minutes again. Also in that 1-2 minutes I've noticed that only one zone is working.Pretty simple product should work without any issue it's as simple as kettle. But it doesn't. I wish Breville controls quality better.First, there was no hard water test kit. This evening I loaded it up with water, placed two artichokes in the steamer, turned it on and it ran about 3 minutes and went completely blank. I couldn't turn it back on so I plugged something else into the outlet to make sure it wasn't a power issue and it wasn't.

Three times I was able to turn it on and have it run a couple of minutes, shut completely down and have to let it sit 5 - 7 minutes before I could turn it back on again. Am terribly disappointed.. it will be returned to Amazon tomorrow.Can easily cook two large chicken breasts in one pan while steaming veggies in the other pan. 2. Feature of two pans allows both foods to be cooked simultaneously, even with chicken on low steam and veggie on high steam. 3. Feature of synchronized cooking means both pans will be done cooking at same time. 4. Super easy to clean. 5. So far very happy with this product. Have primarily made chicken and steamed vegetables.I have been following a very healthy way of eating and this steamer is wonderful for that. I use it almost every night to steam my healthy vegetables and it's so quick and easy to use and clean and fits so much more than most other steamers, plus it looks really nice on my counter, too. I can't say enough good things about this steamer. I highly recommend it.I read the reviews and everyone loved it but others like me said their unit was defective. The steamer only produced steam on one side and after only 15 seconds shut itself off. I never got to cook anything in the unit. I think that those people that got good units loved them and myself and others that got defective units never got a chance to see how it could really work. Too bad: (The steaming tray, lid, steamer pots are all stainless steel, contrary to ones made out of glass (breakable) or plastic (too many problems). The drip tray is BPA-free, and catches the grease well from the food placed above. All parts are dishwasher safe, except the main water tank which connects the power cord. This is the safest steamer to use, and really, there aren’t that many steamers made out of stainless steel. This is a special one. And Breville products last long. The frozen fish was cooked and delicious to eat. Frozen vegetable were as well cooked to favourable taste.

But the highlight is cooking sweet potatoes. In 30 minutes HIGH, they become flavourful, soft, and cooked excellently (like oven-cooked sweet potatoes). It was not complicated learning how to use it. There are the manual and helpful videos online regarding this popular steamer. And I can’t think of any “cons” with this.Sorry, we failed to record your vote.

Please try again Cost: At first glance this item may look a lot more expensive than other steamers on the market but you should consider that with the Breville steamer you are actually buying two steamers in one. Both sides can be programmed separately and unlike other single steamers if one side eventually stops working you still have the other side to use. Size: This is a big unit but again its technically two steamers so you should expect twice the size. It also will hold a lot more. The removable plug sticks out a bit so I would recommend removing it if you want to push it back against a wall when storing. Operation: From what I can tell it operates by spraying the water onto the heating element which almost instantly turns it to steam. This allows for a very fast startup time and makes a very quiet chug chug sound (kind of like listening to a steam locomotive). Its also a lot quieter than our previous steamer and the sound is kind of relaxing. When cooking some items we only turn on one side of the steamer and use the main lid.

Clean up: The lid and base are easy to clean. The power cord can be removed so you don't have to worry about it dropping into the sink when cleaning. Plastic material for the base and drip tray wipe clean with just a paper towel. Only niggle is the drip tray. After a full run (45 min) the water level in the tray is very close to the top. As the tray fits snugly in place working it loose without spilling the water is tricky but can be done. Secondly, there is a divider that separates the drip tray in two. So when pouring out the water you have to be careful (hence the 4 stars). After each use we use a paper towel to remove the calcium and lime scale from the steam heads. It only takes a couple of seconds and will prevent issues later. The descaling feature is simple and so far we only had to do it once. One thing to note, if it tells you it's time to descale and you ignore it it will eventually shut off and not work until you run the descale mode. Other: Make sure you insert the removable plug all the way. The fit is a bit tight and the first time I used it it came loose because I did not push it all the way in. Once I figured it out the was no problem. If you fill the steamer to the max and run it till its empty (45 min) the drip tray will be just about full. As you can eaily refill the steamer from the outside be careful not to cause the drip tray to overflow. Overall I am very happy with this steamer and would highly recommend it if you do a lot of this type of cooking. If a steamer is something you only use once in a while then I would recommend getting something cheaper.Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again It has stainless-steal cooking surface which is a good thing to have. It has a digital readout which easy to see and use, and has two independent steaming control: simultaneous cooking for foods that require different steaming times. So far we tried steaming salmon, and some veggies. They turned out really good. {-Variable.fc_1_url-

Using this Breville Steamer is a good way to cook healthy foods. The only draw back is the lid not made of glass, thus you cannot see the food being steamed, thus we rate the steamer at 4.5 stars.Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again Initially I really enjoyed it and did loads of veggie steaming. But that's all I was doing with it and I was still cooking meat etc with a different method and appliance. It eventually found its way to one of my kid's kitchens. This is why I got excited about the Breville BFS800BSS The Steam Zone Food Steamer - it steams more than one type of food at a time. A 'Split Zone' lets you steam two different food items at the same time. That AND a 'Sync Finish' setting ensures both foods will finish at the same time. There are two glass lidded baskets. But note that you're not limited to using the two baskets. The large tray allows you to steam directly on it as well. Operation is pretty easy. Choose one side or both or full tray. Set the level, time, press start and that's it. There is also anadjustable keep warm setting as well. A small water window lets you know if water level is okay. You'll hear two beeps and see a message on the LCD screen. A small 'spout' on the right front allows you to add water while cooking. The steamer has a rapid start button and reaches max streaming level in less than thirty seconds. I timed it and yes, it did. There are high and low settings for both cooking and keep warm. The Steam Zone is just plain pretty to look at - gleaming stainless steel - lids, tray, housing and baskets. The drip tray is plastic - BPA free. An LCD screen on the front of the base is home to the settings. I've done rice, potatoes (a whole sweet potato only took 30 minutes and was much nicer than in the oven), veggies, fish and chicken (fresh and frozen. There are two pages of cooking guide times for basic foods. Steaming honestly does not take that much longer than cooking with the oven or fry pan.

And we're looking to eat healthier, so this is a great option. The food tastes fresh and the nutrients aren't boiled out. A strip to test your water hardness is included. The plug in end of the cord is unique - it's called an Assist cord and allows the user to pull out the plug with only a finger instead of grasping. Inside the steamer lid, you'll find permanent instructions on descaling the steamer. (There's a specific pre-set cycle for this. And in fact the steamer will not allow you to cook until it is descaled!) I like the attention to detail. This unit has a one year limited warranty. Overall - quite amazing. The steam zone is an invisible area just above the boiling water which holds the greatest heat energy. Therefore it's ideal for steaming food effectively.Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again I thought it is the perfect steamer that I've dreamed of but i was wrong. For me it doesnt make any difference from the other plastic steamers out there. The boiling water that steans the food in the stainless plate and pot was boiled from a plastic base is not acceptable.The Breville messed up in this part. Theres no point of buying stainless if it is contaminated by plastic wether bpa or not. It was like only dressed up by stainless but the steam was fumed by a plastic. I have to return mine as it is also defective. I think the breville should follow the concept of Hanex or Euro Cuisine FS2500. It is quiet bulky but guaranteed stainless from bottom to top.The plastic part is only at the outside that doesnt affect the food.Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again I have been using a 5 or 6 year old steamer to steam vegetables about 3 times per week, and while it does the job, I have always kind of hated it. The containers that held the food were made of plastic and it just isn't that healthy to steam food in lots of plastic all the time. Then there was the clean up, the spills and the annoying interface. AVON-BRATISLAVA.COM/files/files/97-jeep-wrangler-owners-manual.pdf

This Breville is a whole other kind of experience and it's only now that I see the true potential of what a good steamer can bring to my life. The tray and baskets that hold the food are all made from stainless steel, so there's no plastic or aluminium coming into contact with my food. This makes me happy. There's one large tray which can be used alone for cooking a large batch of one food type. And there's the option of using one or both of the included baskets, which both have lids. I can put broccoli in one basket and carrots in the other without everything ending up tasting roughly the same due to the flavours mixing together. Or I can put only one basket on one side and put another food on half of the main tray if I want to fit something larger on that side. The most impressive part is that each side of the steamer can work independently at different temperatures and for different lengths of time. It sounds complicated but once you get the hang of it it's quite simple. The steamer heats up really quickly and is very easy to wash afterwards. Needless to say, my old steamer is going to be given away or donated to a charity shop, as this is better in every way possible. And if you are new to steaming and don't want to make the mistake I did, which was put up with a cheap and annoying unit for years, it's worth making the investment into something like this one so that you have a much more pleasant experience. When a steamer is so well designed and easy to use, it encourages me to use it more often and the end result of that is a healthier diet.Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again I'm just not sure what I think about the idea of steaming food. It often comes out rather flavourless. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is large and heavy.Sorry, we failed to record your vote.

Your guide Justin Vassallo Share this review After more than 60 hours of research and testing across nine espresso machines, we think the Breville Bambino Plus is the best for new and moderately skilled enthusiasts alike. The Bambino is powerful and easy to program and use, and it is capable of yielding consistent, rich shots and steaming perfectly textured, delicious milk. It has a sleek, compact design too, making it easy to fit into most kitchens. Our pick Breville Bambino Plus The best espresso machine for beginners This potent little machine is fast and easy to use, and it will impress beginners and experienced baristas with its consistent espresso shots and silky frothed milk. It lets you make truly good espresso drinks at home. The user manual is easy to understand, and with a little practice, you can pull rich and consistent shots, even capturing a bit of the nuanced flavors of premium roasts. Perhaps most impressive, the Bambino can generate silky milk froth that will rival the best drinks made by your favorite barista, whether you use its super quick auto-froth setting or manually steam the milk. The Bambino is also compact, making it an easy fit for any kitchen. Advertisement Budget pick Gaggia Classic Pro Nuanced espresso, mediocre milk frothing This affordable machine can yield shots with surprising complexity, but it struggles to froth milk and feels a bit outdated. Much of the mechanics of the Pro remain the same as the Classic, but it does have a somewhat improved steam wand. The new wand is imprecise compared with the Breville’s and struggles to muster milk froth with a velvety texture but is at least capable of doing so with practice. The old Classic’s clumsy automatic panarello wand isn’t. Compared with the Brevilles we tested, the Pro was capable of producing shots that better captured the brightness and acidity of the coffees we sampled, and for people who have a taste for straight espresso, this advantage that could outweigh the Gaggia’s drawbacks. Upgrade pick Breville Barista Touch An all-in-one espresso machine with professional quality results Sleek and powerful with great programming, the Barista Touch lets beginners make a variety of cafe-quality espresso drinks at home. The Breville Barista Touch is easy to use, making it great for beginners, but it also includes advanced controls and even manual operation for experienced users and people who want to get more creative. It’s an all-in-one machine with a quality built-in grinder and a touchscreen that offers step-by-step tutorials, eliminating the need for novices to pull up a host of how-to videos online. More advanced users aren’t likely to get bored; you can opt for more or less control over each step in your drink-making process. The Barista Touch is just as consistent as the smaller Breville Bambino and a little more powerful, pulling balanced shots and frothing milk with ease. Everything we recommend Our pick Breville Bambino Plus The best espresso machine for beginners This potent little machine is fast and easy to use, and it will impress beginners and experienced baristas with its consistent espresso shots and silky frothed milk. The research Collapse all Why you should trust us Who this is for How we picked How we tested The best espresso machine: Breville Bambino Plus Flaws but not dealbreakers Budget pick: Gaggia Classic Pro Upgrade pick: Breville Barista Touch Choosing a coffee grinder for espresso What to look forward to The competition Sources Why you should trust us As a former lead barista with 10 years of experience in high-volume coffee shops in New York and Boston, I know what is integral to making an ideal espresso and latte, and I understand the obstacles that can hinder even the most skilled barista from crafting the perfect cup. While I have moved on from the coffee world to become a freelance writer, I occasionally moonlight at my neighborhood shop in Brooklyn and have retained my palate and technique. In the process of researching this guide, I read articles, blog posts, and reviews by coffee experts, watched product demo videos from sites such as Seattle Coffee Gear and Whole Latte Love, and interviewed Alison Nowak, a Boston-area barista of nearly 20 years experience currently working for George Howell Coffee. I also spoke to Phil McKnight, Breville’s global business manager for the beverage category, for more information on Breville’s PID control and heater technology. This guide builds on work by Cale Guthrie Weissman. Who this is for Our picks are for people who have developed a taste for good espresso and want a reliable setup that strikes a balance between automated convenience and moderate skill-building. People who have learned about espresso by frequenting third-wave shops or checking out a few coffee blogs will be able to develop their craft on our picks, yet those who might be overwhelmed by coffee jargon should likewise find their way on these machines. If you understand the basics about the grind, dose, and tamp, you’ll be able to make tasty drinks. (For further instruction, see our starter guide on how to make espresso at home. ) How to Make Espresso at Home: A Starter Guide To make good espresso shots, you’ll need a little practice and patience to get the hang of it. Here is our guide. Regardless of a model’s sophistication and power, it takes a bit of time to get accustomed to its process. Making perfect drinks at home requires patience and discipline, and even with all my experience, I was occasionally humbled during testing. But provided that you read the manual and take some time to assess how your shots are pulling, you’ll be comfortable on any of our picks. If you are obsessed with coffee, attend cuppings, and already experiment with a variety of brewing methods, you may want to invest in a machine that is significantly more expensive than our upgrade pick. How we picked Pulling a shot on the Breville Barista Touch. Photo: Sarah Kobos Our goal was to find approachable and affordable espresso machines, ones that could satisfy novices and also intermediate users (or even an old hand like me). At a baseline level, an espresso machine works by forcing hot water through finely ground beans with pressure. The water must be the right temperature, about 195 degrees Fahrenheit—much cooler, and your espresso will be under-extracted and weak; much hotter, and it can be over-extracted and bitter. And the pressure must be constant so that water flows evenly through the grounds. Basic espresso machine parts and accessories to know. Photo: Sarah Kobos There are three different styles of machine (not counting capsule-based machines like the Nespresso, which merely mimic espresso) that give you more or less control over this process: Manual espresso machines require you to create the pressure with your own force by pulling on a lever (that’s why it’s called “pulling a shot”). Inadequate pressure will result in uneven extraction, which is why manual models are the hardest to control of all the styles. Since they’re tricky to master and uncommon, we decided not to test them. Semi-automatic machines use a pump to create the right amount of pressure. Most skilled baristas prefer semi-automatic models because the consistent pressure and boiler temperature allow them to settle into a grind, so they can make drink after drink on a busy morning without stopping to adjust. We stuck to testing semi-automatic machines in the interest of recommending models that enable you to learn without too much arduous trial and error. Super-automatic machines (also called fully automatic) do everything for you: measuring and grinding the beans, pulling the shot, and frothing the milk. They don’t offer much room for experimentation, so although convenient, super-automatic models are not the best choice if you’re actually interested in learning how to make good espresso rather than just drinking it, and we chose not to test them. We looked for machines with a quick setup, comfortable portafilters, smooth transitions between steps, potent steam wands, and a general sense of sturdiness and reliability. Ultimately, we settled on the following criteria: A single boiler We considered only single-boiler models, which use the same boiler to heat the water for the espresso shot and for the steam wand. This requires some transition time to reheat on lower-end models, but the technology has advanced enough so that on two of our picks there is almost no wait between steps. We don’t think beginners need the option, since it entails careful multitasking only necessary in a cafe. Fast and consistent We placed an emphasis on consistency and speed, which gives a fun, easy rhythm to what promises to be a daily ritual. To that end, some machines (including all the Brevilles) have PID controllers, which help regulate the boiler temperature, allowing for more consistent shots back to back.
