HIC's Adjustable Vegetable Steamer quickly turns almost any pan into a vegetable steamer to make healthy meals with ease. Its footed design allows food to hovers above the water so they cook gently with steam. Unlike the boiling method, using a steamer promotes healthy cooking by retaining more of the food's fresh flavor and texture with higher levels of nutrients. No more leaching precious vitamins into the water and discarding them down the drain. Specially design with overlapping panels, the hinged Steamer inserts opens to 9-inches to fit various pots easily. It's perfect for cooking and reheating single or multiple servings. HIC's deluxe kitchen Vegetable Steamer Basket is made from stainless steel with non-slip, non-scratch silicone feet. It won't rust or scratch delicate surfaces. Safe for use with non-stick cookware. It's how to steam vegetables, fruits, dumplings, eggs, meat, poultry, fish recipes, seafood, desserts, and other healthy foods without a bamboo steamer or other specialty cookware! Easy to use, simply place the Steamer Basket into a pot that can be covered. Add water to just below the base of Steaming Basket. Place foods into the basket, cover the pot with a lid, and cook until done. Use the center post to easily lift the Steamer safely from the hot water. The post detaches easily to allow ample room for larger items. Squeeze the sides of the post together and lift up to remove it. No assembly required. Smaller and more economical than electric food steamers. Folds for compact storage. Dishwasher safe for easy cleanup.
