You get consistently perfect steamed broccoli with very little effort.
I use this steamer daily and now have some form of steamed veg with every meal.
What prompted me to purchase a microwave steamer was reading reports from nutrition scientists like this one:
"As far as vegetables go, cooking them in water robs them of some of their nutritional value because the nutrients leach out into the cooking water. For example, boiled broccoli loses glucosinolate, the sulfur-containing compound that may give the vegetable its cancer-fighting properties (as well as the taste that many find distinctive and some find disgusting). Is steaming vegetables better? In some respects, yes. For example, steamed broccoli holds on to more glucosinolate than boiled or fried broccoli.
The cooking method that best retains nutrients is one that cooks quickly, heats food for the shortest amount of time, and uses as little liquid as possible. Microwaving meets those criteria. Using the microwave with a small amount of water essentially steams food from the inside out. That keeps more vitamins and minerals than almost any other cooking method."
• Great steamer for frozen or fresh vegetables, and even rice
• Vent on top of lid allows steam to escape, preventing pressure build up that can cause food to explode and splatter all over the inside of the steamer
• Slitted basket ensures food stay above the water while allowing the water bellow to evaporate, creating steam that rises and cooks the food evenly
• Slitted basket allows for water fill with or without the basket inside
• Handle in the middle of the basket makes it easier to lift the food out without using utensils to manually pull it out
• Each corner of the lid is raised to provide grip for lifting the lid off more easily
• Steaming reduces cook time, allowing vegetables to retain most of its nutrients instead of escaping out into the boiling water when cooking it on a stove
• No more waiting for water boil like in traditional stove top cooking
• Works great for the student dorm life
• Save money on having to purchase cooking bags and dispose of it after each use
• Lid can be cumbersome to put on as other reviewers have mentioned, as it must be aligned properly for the latches to snap into place
• Basket handle design is a waste of space as less food can fit since it has to be placed surrounding the handle
• "Middle stalk of steamer basket stays cool so you can lift food out after cooking" mentioned in description is deceptive because the "stalk", i.e. handle is still hot from the steam after being cooked, and has to be cooled at least a minute before handling
• Lifting tabs are not "cool-to-the-touch" and can cause serious burns if lifted immediately after being cooked, therefore must wait at least a minute for it to cool down before lifting lid off to allow steam to diminish
