I love that this steamer basket expands and is dishwasher safe as well. When I am done using it and cleaning it, I just place in one of my pots so I can find it easily. Oh, and if you are concerned about any rust, this steamer is rust free and always user friendly. For college students on the go and no time to cook, this is a great gift because they can easily make fun and healthy foods away from home and not worry about eating unhealthy foods.
The best thing about this steamer is, your veggies will not become too soft. In fact, when I steam my veggies, they are a little al dente, just way I like it.
