Top 5 Best Food Steamers in Malaysia 2022 (Affordable)
Wanna try making steamed fish and veggies at home? You have two options: either you do it with a steam pot on a gas stove or you can get an electric steamer. Here is a list of 5 Best Food Steamers in Malaysia that you can get on Shopee & Lazada.
Features Of A Good Electric Steamer
Before buying an electric steamer, consider a few things. First, ensure you are getting the right size. Most steamers come in 5L or 10L capacity per each tier. Do see whether the steamer size is overall or per tier. As a rule of thumb, a big sized steamer would be 10L per tier.
Second, ensure the steamer has good safety features like auto-off protection, or anti-dry protection. Without these, the device may cause injuries. Additionally, ensure the steamer has a water indicator for you to monitor the water levels.
Third, think about the desired shape for your steamer. Do you want a round steamer or an oval steamer or a rectangle steamer? To answer this, think about the kind of food you’re going to make. Making steamed kek lapis in an oval steamer is going to be a problem, isn’t it?

Best Food Steamers in Malaysia
Trio TFS-18 Food Steamer
In the view of many, the best food steamer on the market right now is this Trio TFS-18. This model is complete in all aspects: safety features, size and ease-of-use. With a capacity of 10L, plus another 10L jumbo (2 tiers), you can cook almost all types of dishes: fish, vegetables, rice and even cakes. This model is also equipped with a double heater to turn water into steam faster. Filling water into it is super easy as it does have a water filler on the side of the steamer, so you won’t need to move the plates. The safety feature is also great, with a 60-minute 'auto-stop' timer that you can use to set the time. The only drawback is that the wire is a bit short, but you can always get an extension. Comes with a water bowl and refill cup. Recommended!
Morgan MFS-29 Food Steamer
As a competitor to the Trio food steamer, Morgan also markets a model that can be considered as the best food steamer. In terms of price and features, this model is more or less the same as the Trio TFS-18. There is a double heater to steam faster, there is a 60 -minute timer and there is a water filler for you to refill water easily. There is also an anti-dry thermostat safety feature. The main difference between Morgan and Trio is in terms of capacity. Although the price is more or less the same, Morgan’s capacity is larger at 28L (2 floors) compared to the 20L (2 floors) from the Trio. If you need a large capacity, consider this model as well, but make sure there is enough space in your kitchen to store it.
Elba EFS-G1035 Food Steamer
Our third choice for best food steamer is an option for those of you who want to find a cheaper model but do not want to compromise on quality and safety. In terms of design, this Elba steamer is round in shape more or less the same as most gas steamers, so it is suitable for types of dishes that require a round pot. There is a 60 minute timer and there is also anti-dry and auto-cut off protection. In terms of capacity, this food steamer has 10L and 3 levels but you may have to check if the third level can get hot enough for the kind of food you’re making. There is no water filler, so you have to lift the steamer pot when you need to refill the water. But with a cheap price, you can't complain too much. Quite worth the money!
Tefal VC1401 Food Steamer
Another inexpensive option on Shoptrack’s list of best food steamers is this Tefal Food Steamer. This model is in the same price range as the Elba Food Steamer, so it can be considered a competitor for the same market. The significant difference from the Elba is the capacity of the Tefal is 6L compared to the 10L from the Elba, and this model only has 2 tiers. But with more or less the same price, you can get a side water filler which is not present on the Elba model. Safety features are also available: auto-off and water indicator.

Pensonic PSM-162 Food Steamer
As the last choice of the best food steamers, we chose this medium priced Pensonic PSM-162 Food Steamer. In terms of capacity, this steamer is not too big and not too small, with 12L capacity (6L + 6L, 2 levels). There is a 60 -minute timer like other large capacity models and there is a water filler to refill water without having to move the pot. There is also auto-off as a safety feature, indicator light and water indicator to see the water level. For a family of 2-4 people, maybe this capacity is big enough, you may not want to spend unnecessarily. The shape is rectangular which is quite normal for a large capacity steamer. So if you’re looking for a medium size steamer, this model may make a nice addition to your kitchen!
