      Comments about Southbend EZSteam 5-Pan Electric Countertop Convection Steamer:

      Purchased this steamer from another vendor, but it died after 14 months, spent another 2 months trying to get Southbend to warranty element issues, it was fixed, 6 months ago the elements again one by one started burning out and now, all three are non-functioning. Replacing all of the elements is almost as expensive as replacing the whole unit. I'll be replacing the whole unit and will not purchase a Southbend steamer again.

      Tundra has been great to work with!
