If you particularly hate the microwave or prefer your food to be gently heated when you’re ready for lunch, steam box is ready for your steamy lunchtime encounters. The enterprise sold more than 500 of its devices on Kickstarter Late 2019 and is finally ready to start shipping his device. We checked it out at CES in Las Vegas this week.

Between Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and its own pre-orders, the company tells me they’ve sold 1,300-1,400 steam boxes to date.

“The Steambox is for every gourmet in the world. It’s for anyone who wants to go out and be more flexible in how they heat their food,” explains Kevin de Krieger, the company’s co-founder and COO. He explains why he thinks steam cooking is superior to the microwave. “Steam is very useful because it doesn’t dry out your food. It also ensures that food is heated evenly throughout. Tastes a lot better too. We have learned from our customers that they love steam. Microwave basically kills your food, while steam keeps it fresher and almost tastes like you made your food for the first time. We love it and so do our first customers.”

The company has produced around 3,000 units to date, and the company has inventory in the US and Europe ready for buyers willing to part with the $270 to break free from the office microwave.

The steam box is about the size of a small shoe box and can heat up about 500 g (17.5 oz) of food in 15-20 minutes. Photo credit: steam box

“Generally, it takes 15 to 20 minutes to heat your food into a hot meal. The battery capacity is about 45 minutes, so you can use it 2-3 times on a single charge. After that, it has to be charged for two hours,” explains de Krieger.

The Bamboo-topped device looks incredibly sleek and has come a long way since its Kickstarter prototypes. One notable setback is that the Kickstarter campaign suggests the device can be charged with USB-C, but for the final design, the company opted for a tip-and-sleeve-style charger. A bit of a shame; If we can charge our high-end laptops with a 65W charger, the company could have found a way to charge the on-board batteries via USB-C as well.

“The switch to USB-C will be possible without any problems in the future,” assures de Krieger. “But so far we haven’t been able to because USB-C works. With the new regulations for USB-C coming in 2024, I believe they will improve the amount of voltage we can use. We’re just waiting for them to get it working and then we’ll definitely add it to the products.”

The company’s CEO has prepared a video showing how the device works:

The steamer contains a 120W heating element and measures 27 x 16.5 x 9 cm (10.5 x 6.5 x 3.5 inches). The food container is made of stainless steel and comes with a silicone lid. It can hold up to 750 ml (25 oz) and the entire device weighs around 4.4 lbs (1991 g).
