Top customer reviews
NOTE: some of the negative reviews say the legs are too short. They likely will be if you want to boil water in a stove top pot and steam there. But in pressure cookers, you don't use a ton of liquid and so this provides more usable space (and handles - YAY #2) and makes more sense. For a stove top pot, you'd probably be better off using one of those bamboo steamers. I have one and it's perfect. You can fill a pot up with a ton of water and steam the pants off what's in the steamer without having to hover over it. Perfection.
But if you use an InstantPot or other pressure cooker - this one is ideal.
So 5 stars for functionality. I removed 1 star off because after few uses, I noticed rust on the joints of the base and the steamer petals (see pictures). I still like the functionality so I give it a quick wash before using it.
OXO, can you please fix this problem?
Please read my review and earlier updates below. Here is a final update. I am updating to 5 stars after receiving a replacement from OXO. The replacement is an improved design that omits the spring that caused the handle to pop up. This was a great design modification by OXO. As far as I could tell, the only purpose served by the spring was to make the lid pop off the pot during use (I must admit it was amusing the first time it happened). The handle still telescopes up and down using friction in the telescoping mechanism to hold it in place - that system works great.
I now recommend this steamer without reservation. My compliments to OXO for listening to reviewer comments on this issue and to implementing an effective solution.
I like the design, very rugged and well built. I especially like the sturdy fold-down legs. I also liked the design of the pop-up handle with slot allowing you to lift the hot steamer with a fork. I would give this product 5 stars, like the majority of other reviews except for one big problem. The telescoping spring-loaded handle design permits three handle-height positions: fully down, half-way up and fully extended. The problem is that my handle will not stay down. With a lot of work I can get it to stay half-way down for a short period before it pops fully up on its own. I can rarely get it fully down and then for no more than a couple of seconds. When I get it half-way down, it tends to pop up when it gets hot during steaming and shoots the lid off my pot. I have to fully remove the handle (yes, it's removable) before I can use it for steaming. I don't know if this is just a manufacturing defect in my steamer, but if you have the opportunity, carefully check out the steamer in person before you buy one. I really want to love this steamer.

I just got an unsolicited response to this post from OXO, which is shown below. This should be very helpful for those who hesitate to purchase this product based on my review or other similar reviews.
Thanks for your feedback on the OXO Pop-Up Steamer. We're sorry to hear about the issue you've been experiencing with the handle popping-up on its own.
Through user feedback like yours, we learned of this issue and investigated; we developed a new telescoping handle that is extendable instead of spring-loaded and will not pop-up on its own while in use.
At OXO we have a Satisfaction Guarantee on all OXO products and we'd love the chance to make this right, please contact us directly at email@example.com.
