Exactly what I was looking for!
on June 3, 2013
Let it be said that this thing is HUGE! I knew it was going to be big, I even knew the steamer was 12" across. I just didn't realize what that was going to look like in real life! Somewhat different than holding a ruler across 12".With that said, I am very pleased it's as big as it is because I have a lot of steaming I do! My poor old dog is allergic to commercial dog foods so I steam yams for her and was doing it seemingly constantly with my little basket steamer and when I was steaming for her, I couldn't for us. I had to do it in two batches. So, now, I can steam everything all at once!
I am thrilled that the casserole can also double as a stock pot! I make a lot of soup during the colder months and I just love the size and shape of this. It's bigger than the pan I've been using so I'll be able to make a little more, as well. Not to mention it's oven safe so I can make my famous vegetable timbale and have more leftovers!
I lucked out that the lid perfectly fits one of my favorite frying pans that didn't come with a lid and I've not been able to find one anywhere. It's true, when you pick up the lid water streams off of it so when I pick up the lid I just hold it over the pot until that stops. Pretty simple. And cleanup is a breeze!
I don't think I could love this any more than I do and if I could give it even more stars I would!!!
