The RSVP Endurance Universal Steamer provides the healthiest way to cook vegetables and grains. With its deep basin, you can fit whole heads of broccoli inside, or just a single layer of carrots. This steamer tapers gradually, so it can fit in any pot or saucepan between 6-1/4" and 7-3/4" wide. The wide handles were designed to stay cool and for handling ease. A durable tempered glass lid speeds cooking, and allows you to monitor food. Made of 18/8 stainless steel, this steamer is entirely dishwasher safe.
