I LOVE asparagus and steaming is the best way to cook it. YEARS ago I had a wonderful steamer pot which was crushed when we moved to Oregon -- I used that pot to cook all my veggies and was sad when I couldn't. When I saw this product I was estatic!! It's smaller than my first one, put I like that it is stainless steel and it cooks great! Also good for corn and long carrots. The basket makes it so easy to remove the veggies too. A great addition to any kitchen.
I am very pleased with the asparagus cooker, however I find it a little difficult to remove the asparagus from it. The asparagus comes out bright green and tender all the way to the tip.
My wife and I like to steam our vegtables and since there are just two of us at most times for dinner, and we don't want to dirty a large pot for asparagus or corn on the cob, we just avoid them. This serves our needs perfectly.
Well what can you say about this product? It is what it is. It holds the asparagus less than 1/2" from the bottom of the pot so they tell you to put 3" of water in the pot so the bottoms of the stalks will always be submerged, I suppose this is by design. I also had to cut off a few inches from the bottom of the stalks to get them to fit in this pot because otherwise they would have been too tall. The asparagus came out fine, though a bit stringy on the lower parts, but I dont blame the steamer for that. All in all it does what it was designed to do and is worth the price compared to the competition. Paying more for a thicker/shinier pot wont make the asparagus come out any better in my opinion.
The shipping was a little slow, but it was the holiday week. It arrived just in time - 12/24. The asparagus pot is wonderful - I love it! I also look forward to cooking corn on the cob in it this summer. Great price for a great quality cooker/steamer.

Shopping for asparagus? Look for bunches with tightly closed, purple-tinged heads and green, hydrated stems. The thicker the stalk, the stronger the flavor.
