I've been looking into purchasing an electric food steamer but can't seem to find any except one that is made with BPA-free plastic. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good steamer appliance? I have an insert in my huge stainless steel stock pot but A) I'm not liking the idea of having to clean both large pieces each time I steam, B) I love that some electric steamers have several tiers where you can cook multiple separate foods like grains/meats/vegs, and C) an electric steamer just seems more convenient to use rather than having to keep an eye on the stove. I'm eager to start cooking healthier meals with a steamer and also to use it to make homemade baby food in the future. I almost want to purchase either the Beaba Babycook or Baby Brezza to use for myself until our baby is old enough to start eating solid foods! But they're expensive and quite small for my husband and I to use for whole meals. *sigh* Why do they make BPA-free baby food makers but not BPA-free regular family-size steamers? Oh the madness!
