The Hannex ESON431S is an electric food steamer. It is currently available in the color silver. This food steamer measures 13.5 x 13.5 x 19 inches and weighs 7 pounds. The 19 inches in height means that this appliance can still fit under most standard kitchen cabinets. The stainless steel Hannex steamer is really good looking.
Most multiple compartment steamers are tiered, but the height and color of this steamer makes it more pronounced. The good looks and digital display make for a food steamer that looks more expensive than what it really is. Its not an expensive model like the Viante CUC-30ST Intellisteam.
The Hannex ESON431S has some highlighted features that make it more functional than other steamers. For example, you can also use this steamer to dip-boil and stew. Most steamers simply function as steamers. Another very cool feature is the “steam energy ring”. It gathers and releases the steam in the middle of the steamer.
The display has big obvious buttons with icons on them. It doesn’t get much easier than that. If you need more information, for your reading pleasure, it comes with a comprehensive user manual.
There are 6 pre-programmed settings available for quick use. Those settings are chicken, fish, egg, rice, vegetable, and bun. This means that your steamer will be able to replace several other small appliances.
We have an egg boiler in our kitchen, and if we bought this steamer, we’d probably no longer have any use for it. Rice cookers like the Zojirushi NS-LAC05XT aren’t cheap. And while the rice setting isn’t the primary function, it could save you from having to buy a separate rice cooker.
The two removable tiered steam baskets are dishwasher safe. Because they look so good, another benefit is that they can also double as serving platters. So there is no need to dirty up more dishes when serving your guest or family food.

Compared to Other Food Steamers
The Hannex ESON431S seems to be a good option and perfect for someone on a budget. While it looks good and probably works great. Still you might want to see what some of the competition may have to offer. Other machines could offer different feature sets or a different value. As such, I’ve compared it to the competition. Hopefully, this will give you an idea of what to look for in a food steamer.
