LOVE THIS STEAMER,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sistema Microwave Cookware Medium Steamer, 83.5 Ounce/ 10.4 Cup, Random Colors (Kitchen)
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.
