Rated 5 out of 5Â by kellane26 I Use This Thing ALL THE TIME!
I was in the market for a nice steamer. I was reluctantly looking at electronic models. I wanted something that got me away from microwaving veggies in the steam packets, but I wasn't excited about losing counter space or the cleanup that would undoubtedly be involved. I came across this contraption and decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did! It works great and clean up is a cinch! It adjusts to whatever size pan you are using and folds up very small for storage.

No real directions except for a few words on the box. Handle has to be put together but really doesn't have a purpose. You have to use a pot holder to even lift the product out of the pot. The handle doesn't open or close the product, you have to try to do that on your own. Box does say you have to fit a lid tightly on the pot, but with that handle you can't fit a lid on top. I had to use foil on top. This product is going to be returned that is for sure.

This steamer feels heavy duty, HOWEVER, the problem is the way the center handle fastens to the basket. A small screw inserts into a hole in the bottom of the basket screws into the handle. Imagine not just the weight of the basket (which is substantial) but add the weight of the food in the basket all suspended by the diameter of a small screw head under the basket. Can you say - CLEAN UP!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Scotmctot Have not used it yet, as I am giving it to my daughter. I have a similar one which I have had for years and I think they are great. Fits into different size pans depending on the quantity you are steaming. This one should be even one step better as the "feet" will not scratch the non-scratch pans. I use my steamer all the time
