This was a gift for my daughter and she has not had a chance to use it yet.
My past experience with this steamer is that it is the perfect product for preparing fruit juices for making jams and jellies.
I was really pleased to find this versatile and high quality Juicer. We just had our first Pinot Noir harvest this year, and we gleaned the remaining fruit after harvest for use in juice for the kids. It was great! Easy to use and clean, the stainless steel is really great quality, and the base of the boiler is thick and great for even heat distribution for even boiling, no hot spots that cause explosive, splashing boiling. The deep colander holds A LOT of fruit, and a clever, volcano-like steam outlet through the juice collector that forces convection through the fruit and spreading to the sides for condensation. The silicone tube and matching clamp is easy to use and makes "pump-over" of the juice onto the fruit easy to do during the steam process.
Love the quality. Glad I bought this.
