Fine. Don't buy the product. Simple as that. Like I say, if you can find a heathier product, then go with it. There are enough reviews to claim this product is not BPA free; so yes, there's a health risk, like anything else. Those who are concerned with this BPA health risk will choose not buy it, simple as that.
Don't put words in my mouth; I didn't say to go out and buy BPA products because "they are entirely safe". Yeah, I'm still alive after 50 years; it's because I keep myself healthy by working out, keeping myself in shape and eating healthy; I'm alive not because I'm pre-occupied and worked up with worries about every damn "poison" in this world. This is what I know: everything is bad for you, so "everything in moderation" is fine. And if anyone actually "follows my advice" about health risks on a "deal" site, the Internet must definitely be not safe.
How did "me not being dead yet" turn into telling your kids it's safe to drive motorcycles? Really? While you're at it, why don't you go further and analogize "me not being dead yet" to playing Russian roulette. I'm pretty sure you're the type that tells people "I told you so".
I saw this deal and saw a lot of good reviews and decide to post it. If you don't like the product don't buy it. If this product was made of BPA-free plastic, I will be as happy as any health-conscious consumer. Yes, you made your point about BPA; we get it, it's very bad; if I can avoid it, I will. Don't make everyone else look stupid with your "basic education" chemistry comment, like every adult should have known that.
@mic2010, hmmm, so now BPA=asbestos? I guess I must have missed that on the news. "Hindsight is 20/20".

Sorry guys, I'm not here to start an argument. I'm not making light of the health-risks of BPA... if you can avoid it, then do so. I'm old-fashioned and am not over-consumed with every health-risk concern there is. I just want to defend myself from the one poster who came to the conclusion I don't care about the health and safety of consumer products and attempted to educate my ignorance of the "obvious". Remember, if you want to answer his/her original question, you better have an "educated guess", otherwise, it will just be an opinion. I guess the ones on Amazon.com aren't good enough.
UPDATE: I have a friend who works for the FDA. While he says that BPA is bad for you, this is his statement:

Basic education in Chemistry would give someone cause to lean towards more INERT metals being better for cooking while science catches up with the exact effect on the human body of the millions of unstudied compounds introduced in less than a 100 yrs (miniscule fraction of human tissue evolution). Agree? Add the leeching power of steam.Factor in evidence & nations (Canada & the EU) taking specific action to BAN bpa and call it a TOXIC substance. Mull a little on BPA in Chinese milk & evaluate how credible YOU think claims are.
Unless you are an extreme conspiracy theorist, you might begin to conclude that it is marginally safer to SIMPLY do without boiling water in plastic.
The world is not coming to an end due to BPA.
We still give out motorcycle driving licenses. But don't tell our kids it is entirely safe to drive em coz you aren't dead yet. When you do, you are socially responsible to a degree.

I was ready to buy it when I read some of the comments on Amazon about the plastic. If it was glass, I would have jumped on this deal.
If you do not care or believe the health concerns then you can buy the thing.
"Back in the day" asbestos products were a good deal also.

Is this SIGNIFICANTLY easier to use/clean than a RICE COOKER which comes with a steaming basket? Please share educated guesses as well.
TIA. Those who do not need a rice cooker please note the question is limited to EASE OF USE. I get the plastic cancer, footprint, price discussion.
I am apalled at the faulty conclusion by a senior citizen - "......for the past 50 years, and am still living....". Just because you are still pottering around after daily dollops of poison does not lead to the conclusion that others who could have had a chance to live to your age aren't in their graves already. Before making comments on a public forum, please stop and think of those who might follow your advice and feed their 3yr old with BPA laced steamed vegetables.

I have one of these, and it is awesome. I steam a lot of dishes including dim sum, Chinese steamed breads, veggies, whole fish, etc. Normally I'm against kitchen gadgets but this one is a keeper because I can set it to steam and it'll keep everything warm while I'm away. You can't do that with a conventional stove-top steaming setup.
I'm guessing that everyone here that is scared of BPA hasn't read the original research. Please do so (with a critical eye) before you start worrying.
