If you need to steam some potatoes or other vegetables, a steamer basket gets the job done quickly and easily. Just pour some water in the bottom of any pot, then drop in this gizmo, the Norpro Silicone 9-inch Steamer Basket.
A bowl is formed by perforated fans that open to fit the diameter of just about any 1 or 2 quart pot. With any basket you use, you want legs to hold the food above the water, you want a pin in the center to use as a handle to lift it out, and you don’t want it to rust.
This silicone basket fits all the criteria and it’s a lot easier to clean than the old fashioned metal ones. And it’s much less expensive than a dedicated steamer pot.
