This highly functional cooker is great for making perfect asparagus. The stems cook at a higher heat than the tips, making for even cooking throughout.

The photo of the product shows the top being so shiney I leaped to the wrong conclusion it was glass, rather it is stainless metal. More significant to me is that the inner basket started to rust at its weld joints after only one use.
I am returning the asparagus steamer because I didn't realize how small it is. I thought I could use it for other things but I don't eat enough asparagus to make it that useful.
You really have to trim your asparagus to make it fit in this pot. It's okay but i am disappointed that once again I have to use something made in China.
I think, if the holes in the pull out container
were smaller ,would it be perfect for me.The
lid is lightweight, easy to burn hands if not careful with the steam ,handles get very hot
I think is little overprized for what it offers.
the basket starts to rust if you put it in the dishawasher.
Theoretically the basket should hold asparagus upright. My first usage was with small stalks, which protruded through the lower gap in the sides. I didn't have enough quantity to fill the basket, so they angled out the sides. Knowing this situation, I believe I can compensate for the next usage.
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.
a little spendy
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.
I'm giving this as a gift.
I do like the product, but. My old steamer had a lip on the basket about 1/2 way down so you could bring the basket up 1/2 way and attach it to the pan so the contents could drip a little.
Other than that I also use it for 'corn on the cob'. It works great!
This is a great little veggie steamer, but I wish the holes in the mesh basket were a bit thinner so that I could steam other small veggies, like smaller pieces of broccoli.
The product itself is great, I just thought it would be taller. I must have missed the part about 9 inches.
Have wanted an aspaaragus steamer for a long time. This one is perfect.
A simple, clean and elegant way to steam long vegetables to perfection -- works exactly as advertised.
Wanted one sooo bad...and this does the trick.
I have a lot of other pots and pans but this one fills a niche in my collections.
The pull out basket is neat..though once pulled out..the asparagus poke through the holes on the bottoms. It wasn't really a problem and didn't
A very good product at a reasonable price.
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 gave this to my son and daughter-in-law as they mentioned they were tired of grilling Asparagus. I already own one of the Steamers and loved it for Asparagus.
The next time I visited them, which was only a week later, they had already used in on Asparagus, Summer Squash and Cauliflower.
The said it didn't work very well on Broccoli but were excited about trying it on other veggies.
They were very happy with the gift being veggie lovers! The fact is though, neither one of us expected it to be so versatile. We got more than we expected! Thank you!

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