    Yes, my steamer basket is falling apart too and steamer still works fine. Is it possible to only replace the basket?

    I would also like to know where to get the basket and container for the Black and Decker Steamer HS80.

    Anyone know a retail organization that sells replacement baskets -- this is a $9.00 part and the company wants $12.00 for shipping and handling.

    I need a replacement basket only for a Black & Decker HS80 vegetable steamer!

    My Black and Decker Handy Steamer HS80 is having the same problem with the steaming bowl. It is so full of cracks and is no longer usable. It made wonderful rice and I miss not having it. I want to find a replacement bowl for it.

I didn't want to buy another steamer or pay half the price of a new one just to ship the basket, so I used a wide plastic tape on the outside of the basket--packaging tape like the post office or UPS uses. The plastic doesn't come in contact with food because it is on the outside of the basket. It has been on there and been through several steamings and through the dishwasher for weeks now, and has stayed on. It gives the basket enough stability that I can make it last a little longer. Of course, I couldn't use it on the bottom where the holes are. But, if your basket is only cracked a little on the sides, this might work for you.

I would not recommend replacing just the plasic basket, too expensive. Once the plastic parts begin to fail, the uint has seen better days (our basket was still ok, but the unit started to leak out the bottom and the timer would stop during the steaming).

Bought a replacment B&D Handy Steamer, oval shape allows longer food items to be steamed (approx 10"x8"), water res & can be filler while steaming. Price was $25 in local hardware (Jan 09). Not worth fixing the old one IMO.

How much water goes in the steamer? Not the rice bowl.


Good afternoon to you!
If I remember correctly, from my rice cooker days, then the measurements are inside the bowl.
Mine was hard to see but I saw them . The measurement was in cups.

Where do i add the water


A rice cooker is designed to heat the water to steam, infusing the rice (or vegetables) with moisture, and removing the excess water by evaporation. Your rice cooker may or may not have come with a steam tray (used to keep the items you want to steam out of the water, but still allow them to heat via the steam). It most likely did come with a deep bowl with a non-stick coating. This is where you pour the rice and the water. Make sure to put the lid on and turn it on when all ingredients are inside the nonstick bowl. Place the bowl inside the electric burner (or the cooker). I would add a little bit of oil to the water to improve texture and stickiness.

6. Microwave on medium setting (50%) for 10 - 12 minutes (white rice) or 18-20 (brown rice).
7. Remove from microwave, close vent holes and let stand with the lid fastened for 4-5 minutes (the steam continues to cook the rice.)
8. Remove rice from the cooker and fluff with a fork.
Yields: 3 cups of cooked rice or 4 to 6 servings.

Cooking Rice


Ironically, I came to this site with the same questin you posted. I just found my manual. This is how tha manual tells you to steam rice:

Place one of the steamer baskets on the steamer base.

Place 1 cup of rice and 10 ozs of water in the rice bowl.

Place the rice bowl on the steamer basket and cover the steamer.

Set timer for approximately 32 minutes, depending on your taste.

Good luck!
