To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The first time I tried to use this double boiler it started making popping noises half way through simmering milk to make custard and I removed it from medium heat and when I tried to separate the top from the bottom part of the boiler it would not come apart- it was completely stuck. Left it for several hours -used hot &/or cold water to try & get it to release to no avail. At the end I tried tapping on the bottom of the lower pot & a dent appeared in the product - the materials in this double boiler were of the poorest quality so into the garbage it went along with the water sealed in the lower portion of the double boiler.
We purchased this item because the lid on original double boiler broke. We were disappointed in the quality of this item but are using the lid that came with the double boiler to replace the original one that broke. So all is not lost.
Terrible quality after 1 month of use. Its coated in some kind of steel but isn't actually steel. The bottom of pan is completely damaged and looks fully burnt from regular, safe use. I would HIGHLY NOT recommend this product.
Garbage Garbage Garbage! DO NOT buy this item or any other in this product line. Only a month of use and the silver of the pot came off on the inside of the pot. Now there's god knows what metal and chunks of the silver coming off. Absolutely a waste of money. Month long return policy expired yesterday, figures.
I use this when I make chili. It is perfect for after I have assembled the ingredients, put it in the top of the double boiler and the tomato sauce doesn't burn! Perfect every time! And so easy to clean.
