Perfect little microwave steamer, purchased mine through Pampered Chef. Was a bit expensive but worth it. I have the small size. Not sure if you can purchase elsewhere without having to listen to their demonstrator or paying high S& H fees. Works very fast, steams fresh veggies within minutes with just a small bit of water. Actually easy to overcook if your not careful! Ease of Cleaning So easy to clean if you are steaming vegetables or other small things. Wipes out easily with sponge and water, then I immediately wipe dry. do Not put in the dishwasher! Durability Had mine for a couple years and it still works great. Lid still locks closed. Only downside is that it's black plastic and the inside has scratched up a bit, but that hasn't stopped it from working. Design This comes in 2 sizes but the small ones works best for most regular meals. The lid snaps on securely and easy to take off. The vents on top allow for quick cooking and draining of water. Lightweight plastic easy to use and clean. .
