Our Recommendations

Vario In-Counter Steamer 200 Series
The VK230 steamer lets you cook with steam in a small space - for healthy cooking that preserves most of the valuable vitamins. Its applications range from steam cooking and blanching to juicing to regeneration with water, stock or white wine. The temperature control ensures the precise adjustment of the water temperature from 100°F to 200°F. Two cooking inserts can be used for simultaneously steaming different foods on two levels without transferring any of the flavors.
