Size Name: Small
After searching extensively for a BPA-free steamer, I stumbled across this one made in New Zealand. Though I would have preferred a ceramic steamer, those are impossible to find in a convenient size (this would be a great business idea for someone).

The delivery was in reasonable time. There are no instructions for steaming but I found that adding about 8 ounces of water and using the vegetables option in the microwave does the trick. For those who do not have it, try steaming for about 3-4 minutes. Layer firmer vegetables in the center and softer ones on the periphery.

I portion my vegetables before putting it in the fridge and wash and steam it at mealtime. It is quick and convenient and great for people on diets (I think vegetables should be a part of any balanced meal).

I am going to order the smaller version for work and travelling.

Received my steamer yesterday and was very pleased; serving approximately 4 to 5 people. It can easily handle a whole head of cauliflower to give you an idea of size. The base of the steamer is like that of Rubbermaid bowls (I don't think it will easily crack if dropped on a hard surface). The vegetable colander has holes around the top rim and slits around the inside perimeter making the steaming process more efficient. There is also a spike handle inside for easy lifting of vegetable colander. After microwaving, I would make sure you push in the pressure release value located on top of the lid to avoid the steam. In addition, it has this great locking system on all four sides with lift-off tabs molded at the corners making the lid easy to remove from the base. Dishwasher safe/freezer safe/made from lead-free materials -- what could be better!

I decided to go on the Cabbage Soup Diet, which uses a lot of vegetables. Unfortunately, I am not not a cook and not very patient. So, I bought the large steamer from Ebay, because it was BPA free. It is incredibly easy. I use frozen and fresh vegetables, add a little water and microwave.

I just bought a second large steamer from Amazon, after noticing that they are stackable. BTW, the Amazon was much less expensive for the same article. Now I can cook separate dishes.

They are made in New Zealand and are very durable. The only problem is that there are no directions. I just emailed the company and asked them to put directions on the website.

I absolutely love this steamer. I've had them all and this is finally the one I've always hoped I'd find. I got the Medium size which is perfect for one person who wants to cook for more than one meal, saving the second portion.

I usually put about a half cup of water in the container. Potatoes take about 6 minutes, corn about 4 minutes, asparagus about 3 minutes or less. I like my veggies a bit cooked so judge accordingly. No cooking instructions come with the item and their web site doesn't have any either so it's a matter of learning on your own. Just start with a couple of minutes on high and go from there.

The basket is not too hot to lift easily from the container with a bare hand, though I don't know why. Cleanup is a snap.

I bought the Orca steamer and was very disappointed with it and ordered the Sistema. It steams vegetables evenly, no spill-over in the microwave and since the lid locks, there is no problem with lids falling off. I would highly recommend this product. We are thinking of getting another one.

Just used for the first time. OMG! I put a whole box of rock hard frozen spinich in for 8 min. Opened and spread it out a little and returned to microwave for 2 more minutes. Just wonderful! Still a beautiful green. Tastes like fresh. This will be used almost daily by me. A few instructions would help people who don't cook very much.

This does a good job of steaming vegetables, but the plastic is problematic - perhaps low quality. The first time I used the steamer, I steamed carrots. They came out perfectly. Unfortunately, the steamer absorbed the flavor of the carrots, and everything else I have steamed in it since smells and tastes vaguely like carrots. I've tried running it through the dishwasher and soaking it in vinegar, but the smell and flavor persist, and any other vegetable I put in it ends up tasting oddly like carrots. So now it's only a carrot steamer.

This is a very good item. I have 2, the large is too big for one or two person portions. I use it all the time, it is easy to clean and Amazon stands behind every thing they sell. Its a great product!
