From the operation steps, cut the vegetables into small pieces, put them in the steaming basket and steam them, then take them out, pour them into the mixing cup and stir. I think this process is the same as when I steam it in a steamer and then put it in a food machine to stir. The convenience is the same. The timer function is a bonus item, which is very convenient, otherwise you have to watch the fire yourself or set an alarm clock.
From the perspective of cleaning, whether it is a food supplement machine or a food processor, the knife head can be removed. The food supplement machine needs to clean the steaming basket, mixing cup, water tank, and the things to be washed in the steamer + cooking machine. The cleaning difficulty is similar.
