Steamer Moulinex

Steamer Moulinex

The Moulinex steamer is a unique kitchen appliance that allows you to process food, while retaining all the nutrients and trace elements in the composition. Steam cooking is considered the safest and healthiest cooking method. In this case, a huge amount of not only rapidly disintegrating vitamins is preserved, but also trace elements that are necessary for the human body. With this method, you do not need to use either oil components or fat..

An interesting fact: using even simple cooking of products, it is impossible to preserve the vitamin composition – most of it goes into water, and the vegetables become watery.

Why is it important to use a double boiler:

  • useful substances are saved – when steaming, the entire spectrum of vitamins remains inside the dishes;
  • assimilation of food products improves – steaming helps to gently process vegetables and fruits, due to which some components (for example, lycopene, which is found in tomatoes) are absorbed faster and better. It is also known that the gentle steaming of foods promotes their easy breakdown within the body. For example, beta-carotene is able to process faster when stewing carrots;
  • mineral compounds and vitamins, heat treated with steam are absorbed ten times faster. Due to this indicator, steam products are recommended to be consumed to support a healthy diet, diabetes, as well as gastrointestinal and cardiovascular diseases. Moulinex steamers can also be used for the elderly.


Moulinex has been on the market for over half a century, and at the end of 1996 it was recognized as the number one brand all over the world in terms of the quality of manufactured devices. That is why the release of new kitchen appliances is controlled in two directions: at the initial stage, and also at the end – in this case, testing is performed according to several indicators. Several values ​​are monitored: how the technique processes the products, how much their composition changes and how long its service life is.
