A selection of vegetable steamers

I buy a lot of kitchen gadgets…too many. The Instant Pot silicone rack is one of the few that stuck. The flexible silicone arms make it much easier to lift out of a hot pressure cooker.

The silicone rack made me think about vegetable steamers – I use them in about the same way. Are newer silicone steamers any better than my old, flippy, stainless steel steaming rack? Stay tuned to find out…

Sharing is caring!

Hi! I’m Mike Vrobel. I’m a dad and an enthusiastic home cook; an indie cookbook author and food blogger with a day job, a patient spouse, and three kids who would rather have hamburgers for dinner.

    Please do. The last two stainless steel ones I purchased seem to fall apart very easily. They just don’t make them like they used to.

    Great line, “one of the few that stuck”. I bet we could all recover a lot of cupboard space if we could convince ourselves to throw out all those gadgets that we never use! But we were so excited by what we thought they’d do for us that we just don’t do it…

    Is this a teaser? Shame on you! We grandmas have time constraints too. I do like your trial and error approach…very much like an engineer. 😎
