New Food Steamer?

Recommended Posts

Even though I've been gluten-free for several years, I have the occasional "Oh no, I never thought about _____!" moment. This time it's about my food steamer.

I have one of those plastic food steamers that has an extra steaming bowl for rice.I had it before going gluten-free and at one point cooked gluteny flavored rice in the steaming bowl. I ordered a new steaming bowl. BUT should I have also replaced the lid and any other parts of it since it's all plastic? 

 

And dear Lord, when does the questioning end!?!?!

I wouldn't worry about it as long as you were able to get it clean.  Only if the plastic is really scratched up with gluten in the grooves, would I consider getting rid of it... But I've never had a steamer.  ;)

I agree, you should be just fine.  But if it gives you peace of mind then by all means get a new one.  Sometimes that ole peace of mind is worth more than the cost of something fresh and new!
