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.
This steamer set would have been perfect if more thought went into designing the handles on the individual pots. They get hot when the steamer is in use, and your hand will be burned if you try to pick the pots without an oven mitt or some other protection. A quality thick silicone wrap would have gone a long way. -1 star.
Otherwise a perfectly adequate steamer set, neither too large nor too small, I like it.
I bought this item for a friend of mine who was going to dip chocolate and she needed a double boiler. She checked local stores and found some that might not have lasted after her first use, so I went to Amazon and found the perfect double boiler. It is sturdy and works like a charm and best of all...she loves it!! When she isn't using it for melting chocolate, she uses it to steam veggies and she also uses to pot on its own. It was a perfect gift for her. Glad I found it!!
I am very pleased with the quality and feel of this set of pans. I needed a double boiler and thought i should get this set because i could also use the steam capability too. They look great and they cook great. I am very happy with this purchase!
I bought this pot to be able to make my Grandmother's double boiler upside down bread pudding. It has a channel like ridge to keep the double boiler in place on top of the pot. The pudding gets into the channel and it's hard to get out. I'm going to try greasing it to see if that helps but it's a nuisance.
This pot is very convenient for people like me who like steamed buns and steamed corn and sweet potatoes. Actually, I make healthy meals every day, and the pot allows me to boil eggs and broccoli while steaming corn and carrots, saving me a lot of cooking time.Amazing pot that I love it so much!
The pot size is generous and allows for steaming a single layer of veggies to just the right point. The lid fits solidly and being glass is easy to check on what you are cooking. The inserts fit smoothly and I have not noticed any steam issuing from between the pot and inserts. Overall, this is a well designed product that has more than met my expectations.
My wife asked me to get a double boiler. I selected these after reading reviews. Nice looking, high quality, and reasonably priced. Wife has already used them several times and is pleased with the quality. Recommended.
