Fruit and vegetable "Steamers."...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I am steaming a batch of plums right now, and it all seems such a waste of time and energy using this steamer juicer. I bought it thinking it would save some time, but it making it into more time right now.

 

The whole thing is made from aluminum.

The bottom piece is filled with water and allowed to simmer.

On top of that is a pan with a spigot at the end.

On top of that is a strainer piece that fits inside the piece before it.

Then, there's a lid.

I have a flexible tube on the spigot draining the liquid from the plums into a large pot sitting on two milk crates next to the stove.

It has been going for 3 1/2 hours and I'm only through half of the plums that I picked this morning. At this rate, it will be dark before I'm done with just getting the juice.

Had I done this the other way, I can't help think that's I'd probably be at the canning stage by now.

It all seem such a waste of my time and energy to have to sit here and baby sit this contraption.

As they say "Caveat Emptor." Buyer beware.....

An update.......9 hours later.....9 hours it took to juice a 5 gallon bucket of plums. I think this steam juicer is going into the closet for a very long time.........
