MessageI use the B&D too, and I just fill the steamer fuller than you are
supposed to..... almost to the top, and it always has enough for preheating
and the longest time I use (40 min).  The other thing I do sometimes (more
for speed than for the reason you mention) is to heat the buffer in the
microwave for a bit first.  Then the preheating time is less than 20

  Yes, we use that too. Only problem is that for long ARs (30-35 min), it
tends to run out of water if not topped up - it takes about 15-20 min to
bring the temp of citrate buffer in a Coplin jar up to 95 deg C.

    I just use a Black & Decker Flavor Scenter Handy Steamer.  About 30
bucks at Walmart!
