A small rice cooker is the answer. As well as being able to cook rice, it also works fantastically as a steamer.

As a single person I find the bamboo type that sit on a pan easiest, takes up hardly any space when not using it. Although these days I've become lazy and bought the frozen veg portions in bags that you microwave, bamboo one only used now for stuff they don't do in those bags.

As you are probably aware OP finding even foods "for one" is a difficult task in itself

I agree small bamboo one from a local Chinese supermarket would be best. Should be around £5-£6 with lid

I did think about a bamboo one but it is for my mother who is 70+ and I would prefer an electric one as I think it will be safer and easier for her to use.

How long does it take to cook rice? Can you just shove in rice, sauce, peas and pork pieces to cook together?

I have started using steam bags that you use in micro and they work great. Dunhelm have them in different sizes. £1 for 30 small or 25 large.

Lol! See you have changed it to Dunhelm instead of Dungeon! Unfortunately my mother doesn't have a microwave but I think I will give them a go as they seem to be a really good price.

They sell those steam bags in Home Bargains as well. They have 2 types and different sizes. There's the microwave ones and they have bags that can be used in a conventional oven. They have vegetable bags and bigger ones for chicken. 8)

I bought one recently for £10 from Lidls and it's still in the box. But I never thought about using it as a steamer. So thanks for that, I'm going to try that on Sunday. This is definitely the best answer and the safest way to cook. 8)
