Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Universal steamer with lid can fit pots with 2- to 4- quart capacity. Works with both straight-sided and tulip shaped pots. Easy to clean, and dishwasher safe. Cooks food quickly. Lightweight but durable.Oven safe to 500 degrees F.
I love that I only need this one steamer to fit all of my various size pots. I use this pretty regularly to steam a LOT of veggies and appreciate how deep it is - my other steamer is more shallow and I usually struggle to fit everything in there!
The glass lid sits on the steamer insert tightly to provide even steaming and also gives more control over the cooking process. It allows you to watch the food without lifting a lid, which keeps all the heat and moisture inside for faster steaming.

What reviewers didn't like

You'll need to provide your own pot to use this with. Some felt that this was smaller than expected.
The handles are not heat resistant and may get hot if you are cooking or steaming more than 15 minues.
