Sleekstor VeggiSteam Silicone Steamer by Chef'n

That old metal clunker? See if it can be recycled, because there's a new steamer in the cabinet. With its sleek lines and expanded surface area, the SleekStor VeggiSteam is a steaming revolution.

The VeggiSteam has a silicone body with a nylon core and is 650 degrees F (340 degrees C) heat resistant. It will not stain or retain food tastes and odors. To use, place the steamer in your small or medium sized pot over water, then insert vegetables. The steamer has a three-leg base that raises vegetables or other produce above water for superior steam. The VeggiSteam fits in any small or medium sized pot; it features two handles for safe removal and will never scratch your cookware, unlike traditional metal steamers. All VeggiSteams are top rack dishwasher safe and safe to use in the microwave.

About Us

What we do is who we are

There's something you should know about us. We can't stand the status quo—especially when the status quo stinks. That was literally true back in 1982, when you had two options for getting garlic into your meal: chop up a fresh clove and have your hands smell for the rest of the day, or settle for a couple of thin, dry flakes tapped out of a plastic container. For our founder, CEO, and Famous Inventor David Holcomb, there really was no option. He had to do better, and he knew he could.

Fast forward a few decades and David's first creation, the Garlic Machine, has become Chef'n. We're a growing Seattle-based company with more than 250 product patents worldwide and a single mission. We want to make better tools so you can make better food. It's what drives our in-house design team to reinvent the utensils and gadgets that most of us take for granted while we're cooking and cleaning. It's what attracts the terrific, talented people we've welcomed into our Chef'n family. And it's what compels us to tell everyone we meet about the innovation Chef'n products can bring to their kitchens.

Is anyone listening? Well, the design awards and magazine covers seem to say yes, but for us the true test is in the homes of real people around the world. So put one of our inventions to work, create something delicious, and we look forward to hearing from you about your Chef'n experience.

It's easy to clean.

It actually conforms to the size of your pot, which is great for small or large steaming recipes.

Then carefully...and I stress CAREFULLY, grab the other handle and lift it out of the pot.

I bought this steamer about a year ago, and from the first, I just loved it. I had no idea how much better veggies taste steamed than boiled. Much more flavorful and fresh-tasting! It fits both my small and medium sized Revere cookware pots. So easy to use - just push down into the pot and steam away. When done, just toss into the dishwasher. It comes out looking like new every time. So far I have only used it for veggies, but would definitely consider steaming other types of food.

I would have given this five stars, but I find it very hard to get it out of the pan once the veggies are done. It's a pretty tight fit even in a medium pan and when I pull on the loops to get the whole steamer out with forks or tongs, etc., it just flips over and the veggies end up in the water. You really need three hands to get it out correctly - one to hold the handle of the pot, and two to yank the steamer out by the loops. You could just scoop the veggies out of the pan without pulling the whole steamer out, but I consider this a flaw in the design.

On the whole, I would recommend this to anyone.

Perfect fit in my Le Creuset 3 1/2 quart round French Oven. I have found that I need to treat my Le Creuset cookware the same as I would non-stick cookware: any metal can scratch it. So I replaced my old metal veggie steamer with this one. As far as it not having a center post, I lost the center post that came with my metal one many years ago, so I could care less!

this product is addictive. You may feel a strong urge to use often. I use daily. I gave one to my 75 year old aunt. She said it was stupid. Now she uses daily. Says it is the most useful thing she has ever had in her kitchen. When she started cooking she didn't have runing water. Figure that. It fits in my 5 1/2 qt Staub and my 1 1/2 qt AllClad. I like to put garlic & stuff in the water to infuse into the vegetables, shrimp, rolls, potatos. Fill a 2 cup plastic container half full of prepared cake mix. Put it in the steamer (no "garlic & stuff" in the water). Cover. Nuke 7 min on medium. Best, most moist cake ever. Little Jiffy Mix is right size.

Color Name: RedSize Name: 8-1/2-Round Verified Purchase
I purchased this because my metal steamer was scratching the bottom of my non-stick pot, but the functionality leaves much to be desired. Because it doesn't fan out like the metal steamer, the sides fold in, reducing useable space and allowing smaller veggies to fall through the cracks (minus one star). Then, once your food is cooked, it's virtually impossible to get it out without everything dropping in the water and having to use a colander (minus two stars). The flat shape is the problem here - when trying to pull it out of the pot by the handles, the whole thing just flattens and either turns sideways in the pot (dumping the food in the water) or you end up with a flat steamer and a pile of food that is threatening to fall all over the stove or sink.

I like the concept, but I'm afraid I'll be going back to the metal steamer and just letting my pot get scratched (or maybe buying a cheap thrift-store pot just for steaming), because this one is just too much of a hassle.

This is a great product. It's flexible, so it can fit in any small to medium-sized pot. It cleans up beautifully in dishwasher. It is much easier to store than a metal steamer. In fact, my mother had the great idea of storing it as a spacer between my non-stick frying pans, so the top one doesn't scratch the one underneath. Have you ever had a kitchen gadget that multi-tasks as it's being STORED? My one complaint was well-articulated by another reviewer: it needs one more handle. It makes a great little gift too.

I bought this as a gift but I have one of my own. I use this almost every day. It's so nice to be able to steam my veggies in the microwave. I just fill a bowl with a little water, put the steamer on top, fill with veggies, shake some molly mc butter on top and 5 minutes in the microwave and it's done!

No more excuses for not eating your veggies!

I have a big multilevel steamer that's great for steaming big things like crab legs or a lot of vegetables, but when you just want to steam a few veggies this silicone steamer works perfectly. I saw it advertised in Clean Eating magazine and ended up buying it on Amazon. Add a little water, throw in some vegetables or potstickers and in about 5 or 6 minutes you have perfectly steamed food. Not overcooked like the microwave often does, even with those new steam bags, but steamed the way you want them. It slips in the dishwasher and cleans up good as new each time. There's a couple of different sizes so check you pans before you order. Another great thing is that it will not scratch your pans like metal steamers will.

I use this steamer at least once a week. Because it is made of silicone, it folds and fits into three or four of my pots. I just pull out the pot I need (depending on the vegetable... broccoli needs a bigger pot that green beans, usually), add a little water, fold the steamer in and go! It is sturdy enough to lift the vegetables out when they are done, (provided that I did not overfill it). The holes are perfect for draining-- but are not too small (which makes them so hard to clean). I throw it into the top rack of my dishwasher and it always comes out clean.
