Product Description

Amazon.com

It's less what it includes than what it lacks that makes this Norpro vegetable steamer a cut above your average steamer insert. Without a bothersome center post, there is plenty of unobstructed room to steam entire heads of broccoli or cauliflower or full-length cobs of corn--and finished vegetables are easier to remove with a spoon or a spatula as denser veggies keep steaming. No need to slice carrots or pole beans beforehand--just plop them whole into the basket, which expands from 7 to 10 inches, depending on the size of the pot you set it in.

The three-pronged base provides stability equal to models with center posts, but instead of one central handle there are two ring-style side handles. This is another improvement, as you don't need to reach into the middle of the steaming-hot food to remove the basket, and using the side handles supports the basket's shape rather than allowing its "petals" to pop open flat upon lifting. The heavy-duty waffled segments hold tightly together during use and fold inward for compact storage. --Carol Gnojewski

The leaves/wings kept falling off.

I've only used the steamer a few times, and one of the legs fell off.

This steamer insert is too large to use in smaller pots, so be sure to measure and make sure your pot is at least 7" wide on the inside. The feet won't scratch your pot, and removing the cooked vegetables is much easier without the center post common to cheaper steamers. With this one, I can just use a large spoon to scoop out the items, or if I want I can hoist the entire steamer out of the pan by grabbing the rings on the sides, but that's pretty tricky when it's fully of steaming veggies.

I love this little gizzmo and I have had mine for years. I have tried other steamers but this one is simple to use and it adjust to any size pan (with in reason that is). All my friends now have one especially after they figured out what it was for. By the way it is real easy to clean and it stores away easily. And if your trying to save money, it costs very little. Get one. You will love it.

It used to be that we'd buy one of these stainless steamer trays that go in a pot and we'd use it for years until it was just too ugly to continue. The last few years we keep buying them from every source we can find and they last a few weeks or months. This one was the worst. The little edge leaves pop off and we try to put them back together and crimp the tab a bit more but they keep falling out. A grand and absurd nuisance. I know China makes just about everything we buy these days but they could make these better if our manufacturers demanded quality. Me and my soap box :-)

UPDATE: Amazon does have a very good steamer basket now. It is the Chef Craft 21522 six inch. It answers all of my wishes.

The bottom of this steamer has an rim or lip that makes it the tiniest bit too large. I had another brand of steamer for years but it finally broke and I purchased this to replace it. This steamer is the slightest bit too large (becaue of that rim) to fit comfortably in either of the Revere pots I used the old steamer in. I can get it in the larger pot by tipping it but it is tight.

I really like this steamer. For starts, it is sturdy, no legs falling off, no center lifting hook becoming lopsided and unusable, as did a steamer I recently bought at my local grocery store and proceeded to toss out once I used this top-notch steamer.

It has two lifting hooks, one on each side, so it is easy to lift out at the end of steaming. It is solid and strong, and does a good job. Definitely a quality product!

About 16 months after purchase one of the legs broke off. Now two years later all of the "leaves" are falling out. I like the design, but it just is not sturdy.

I never had used a steamer basket before I ordered this item. Used to ccok veggies in the microwave. I use the steamer in a large stir fry pan that is shaped like a wok, but has a flat bottom. It fits perfectly in the pan, and expands to accomodate a lot of veggies. I just put water in the bottom, cover the pan, and it steams perfectly. Goes in the dishwasher for cleanup. A most useful tool at a super price. Glad I didn't get the kind with the center post. This one is so easy to use! Sometimes simpler is better.

I use this steamer as a stand the most of all the different size metal stands I own. These are generic steamers commonly found in Chinese kitchen supply stores. It's better to get this style rather than the one with the rod in the middle. This adjusts to tighter pots and expand/flatten out to allow for larger dishes.
