Stainless Steel Veggie Steamer Review

We've had a steamer for about 12 years now. It was looking run down. It's been accidentally left in the water too many times. We have another steamer that came to fit inside a big pot. We often times use more than one steamer when it's breakfast time. One to boil some eggs, and another to steam some greens. It seems like one, or both steamers are always in use.

I've been wanting to replace the smaller steamer that we've had for 12 years. It's served it's purpose.

Luckily I got a new Sunsella Stainless Steel Vegetable Steamer to review. 

It folds up smaller than my other one. I love that it's more compact, and expands to fit a lot of different sized pots. The diameter 5.3" - 9.25", and the height range (legs included) 2" - 3.35".

Things You Can Make in a Steamer:
  • Vegetables
  • Fruits 
  • Eggs
  • Seafood (fish, mussels, crabs, and clams)
  • Dumplings
  • Meat and Chicken   
  • Some Desersts
  • Making Baby Food
  • More...

About Sunsella Stainless Steel Vegetable Steamer
  • It's 100% high-grade stainless steel. That includes the legs.
  • It wont rust like the cheaper aluminum versions. 
  • The center post and legs are attached. No assembly is required.
  • It's easy to remove from many sizes of pans with a custom designed central ring. The ring on our old one was not as nice as this one.   
  • Your veggies stay tender, and have a perfect crunch at the same time. 
  • It's $24 and it's marked down to $11.99 on Amazon. That really is a steel in my book; for how much we use a steamer in our house.
What We Thought 

I thought it worked great! I used it to make broccoli, and hard boiled eggs. I want to use it to make gluten free chicken and dumplings soon. Will it just sit in our kitchen and not get used? Nope! We'll used it a lot. The only difficulty I had was getting pictures for my readers - you. The broccoli kept steaming up my lens. I just waited a bit, and got a photo.

Do you use a steamer in your kitchen? What do you use it for?

Steaming is such a healthy way of cooking. Wish I did it more often. We recently bought a slow cooker. Been using it more to stew and cook soup heh

I have been wanting a good veggie steamer. Right now we are just grilling all our veggies, but I should talk Jason into getting me one of these for when it gets cold and I don't want to stand outside grilling them anymore.

I've never had a steamer in the house. I like my veggies raw, but hubby likes them cooked. Maybe I should invest in one... it's def. worth thinking about.

I have seen these before but never used one. It looks like it works great.
