The little 'legs' keep the food out of the water while cooking and you retain the 'crunch' and tenderness of your veggies. Depending on the vegetable — carrots, beets and other hard vegetables take longer than broccoli, snap peas and cauliflower — you should be finished cooking in under 5 minutes. To keep the steamed vegetables from becoming overcooked and soggy once they're finished, transfer them to a large bowl filled with ice water until you're ready to use them. It is easy to use and clean. You can steam fish and other foods in this as well
it is also perfect for steaming fruit and vegetables for making baby food.
