I am overjoyed! This is produce at it's best!
I love steamed veggies the best! Cook them until they are still just slightly crispt and they will retain all of their sweet flavors. This is by far the nicest steamer I have ever used. It holds the right amount to serve four or five people, the basket has a nice handle, and the glass lid has a small hole to all steam to escape! I layered carrots, yellow squash, mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, and celery. (Put the longest cooking items on the bottom.) I seasoned the veggies with garlic, salt, fresh ground pepper, and sage in between a few layers and on top. I will serve on top of chicken bouillion seasoned steamed rice, with maybe some salmon!

I am never going to ever give up or put away this steamer, it will be used that often! I eat my veggies and you should too! In addition, I like to make a pasta salad and I can cook the pasta right in the same pot after steaming the veggies! Again it is a perfect size and I always like using the same pot so fewer pots to clean!

By the way, that veggie peeler you see I used for the carrots is over 100 years old! It was my grandmas and you know, I do not know how they did it but it has never needed sharpening, and it has peeled a ton of potatoes and carrots in my lifetime, her's too! I still have her ice cream scoop, wood handle slotted spoon, apple dicer, measuring cup with lid, and measuring spoons! I never get anything new for the kitchen, I mean I even have her roaster! But over 40 years ago I got a rice cooker and I had someone give me a steamer insert where you had to balance it with the veggies out of the pot using a fork which never worked well at all.

This steamer is great! Grab one before Christmas for anyone you know who is somewhat short on cooking tools, this is the perfect tool. Goes along well with a rice cooker too! I'd highly recommend it to anyone that should be eating more veggies or anyone who wants more flavorful veggies! Veggies can keep you healthy and that is so important right now! Get one for each member of the family and include a bag of various veggies (including fresh string beans) so they can try it out. Just a little of each veggie will go far.WildRose
Not to bad
When it comes to cooking and being able to try new things I'm there. This Mainstays Stainless Steel 4 Quart Steamer Pot with Steamer Insert and Lid is a good cooker. You can do many different things with this and I like that you can steam or fry with the steamer insert. When I was first cooking with it I was confused on the handles that you grab to life the steamer out. I tried all different ways to keep the handles when I could grab them but it didn't work. Finally after playing with it for awhile I found a way where you could grab them and keep them from dropping down in the boiling water. When your not using it as a steamer you can use for pretty much anything else to cook. I think it makes the perfect size for a small pot of chili or spaghetti. I have also found that if your cooking in the pot pay attention to it because it don't take much for the bottom of the pan to burn. When it comes to washing out it comes clean pretty easy and it dish washer safe. If you burn something in the bottom just let it soak for a while and it will wipe out. So after all the different things I have tried in this pot it is pretty nice but it's not something to cook in all the time.Hillary
Great Quality Steamer Pot!
This Mainstays 4 Quart Steamer Pot is an excellent product! It's made of a nice and thick stainless steel and is really durable. I have made many meals and side dishes in it, and it still looks like new! The pot heats up quickly and has great heat distribution. It comes with a steamer basket that is removable, so you can use this to steam food, and you can remove the basket and use it as a regular pot as well. The lid is made of thick glass and makes a perfect seal for the pot. I have made many dishes in this pot with the steamer basket in: veggies, tamales, pasta, etc. Pasta is so easy to drain with the steamer basket; you just fill the pot with water and pasta, cook as usual, and simply pull the basket out to drain. I have also used just the pot itself without the steamer basket to make many dishes: mac n cheese, chili, soup, oatmeal, rice, etc. I have even burned a few dishes and the pot still easily washes clean with minimal to no scrubbing! I have a gas stove, so I was worried this pot wouldn't hold up since it's so affordable, but I was so pleasantly surprised. As with all pots and pans, though, I recommend hand washing to extend the life of the pot. I have never put it in the dishwasher so I don't know how it'll hold up under those conditions. The handles of the actual pot do get a little warm to the touch, but even with a medium-high heat setting on my gas stove, the handles never get too hot to handle without oven mitts. The only negative thing I would note is that the handles of the steamer basket automatically spring down into the basket, so you have to use a utensil to grab them in order to remove the basket from the pot. I wish there was a way to keep the steamer handles upright somehow. Other than this one con, I wouldn't change a thing. I would highly recommend this steamer pot to anyone looking for a great quality pot at an affordable price. Thanks Walmart! [I received this product from the Spark Reviewer Program.]HappyHome
