As a steamer, it works great for steaming vegetables, fruit, seafood, hot dogs and hard boiled eggs, also great for making baby food! Simply set it in a larger pot or pan with 1-inch depth water, locking handles and close the lid when it’s ready for steaming or blanching.
As a strainer, you can use it to wash and drain fruits and vegetables, drain the grease off of stir fry meats or drain the hot water from boiled spaghetti. You can also put the steamer on top of pot when you boiling spaghetti or cooking soup, it will stop over boiled.
I love this silcone veggie steamer. Its easy to use and easy to clean up, I can also use it as a steamer. The bundle also came with a silicone oven mitt.
