Must have especially with children
I bought this when I was looking for a small steamer/saucepan as I was tired of using my big steamer pan to steam small amounts of vegetables for my baby. Not only does this take up much less space, it is brilliant at steaming small amounts fast. The real surprise though was I used it to steam rice as it suggests and it makes perfect rice with no fuss and no mess. You need to adjust the cooking times a bit but it is fantastic. Make sure you also follow the water instructions for root vegetables vs. green veg as it makes a difference. Bought a second one just in case and two for friends already. Amazing, easy piece of kitchen kit.

Works well but feels a bit flimsy but does the job.

great product shame it did'nt last long
was pleased when i bought 2 of these steamers but after about 9 months a large crack appeared on both pots in the same places.
so was dissappointed but does'nt stain at all even with red sauces

Lightweight, compact, clean and easy to use
I have used this only for microwaving vegetables so far. It is a joy to use. It can take quite a lot of vegetables, and is deceptively large in volume. Shows no signs of colouring yet and am hoping it will continue to look as good as new with more constant use. I am hoping to try and use it for rice soon. I would definitely recommend this.
