Moderno 100% Stainless Steel Professional Vegetable Steamer Review

As a way to save money and feed my family the healthiest meals possible, I have been trying to cook more variety at home. One kitchen utensil that I lacked was a vegetable steamer. I simply had never bought one. Thus, when recently offered the chance to review the Moderno 100% Stainless Steel Professional Vegetable Steamer, I eagerly accepted the opportunity and finally added a vegetable steamer to my kitchen.

Price

The Moderno 100% Stainless Steel Professional Vegetable Steamer currently retails for $13.99 on Amazon. Other similar foldable steamers sell for roughly the same price, with some costing a little more and others a little less. A price of $13.99 is pretty middle of the road for a stainless steel steamer. I rate the Moderno steamer favorably in terms of price.

Design and Construction

Backed by a lifetime guarantee, the Moderno 100% Stainless Steel Professional Vegetable Steamer is made with durable chef-quality stainless steel. I received the large steamer, which folds for compact and easy storage while semi-expanding to 15 centimeters and fully expanding to 27 centimeters. The detachable center post with ring allows you to easily lift the steamer from your cookware and then easily clean the steamer. The footed base keeps the steamer elevated from boiling water. This steamer feels as sturdy as other similar steamers that I have used. I therefore rate the Moderno steamer favorably in terms of design and construction.

Performance

I am extremely happy with my new foldable vegetable steamer from Moderno! In fact, I wish that I had invested in one years ago so that I could have made delicious and nutritious steamed veggies for my family. To use the steamer, simply cut your vegetables into small pieces. Add an inch of water to the pan and insert the steamer basket. The large size fits perfectly inside my largest (and favorite) soup pans. Bring the water to a boil and add the veggies to the pan. Reduce the heat to medium, and steam the vegetables until tender. Remove the steamer from the pan, and serve your perfectly steamed veggies. I have used both fresh and frozen veggies in my steamer, and both came out beautifully!

Clean up of the Moderno 100% Stainless Steel Professional Vegetable Steamer is also a breeze. Simply place the vegetable steamer in hot soapy water and wash away any residue with a soft sponge or scrubber. Then allow the steamer to air dry. Easy peasy! Even better, the stainless steel will not rust (unlike my beloved cast iron cookware). Washing dishes is one of my least favorite chores around the house, but washing the Moderno steamer is quick and simple. I thus rate this vegetable steamer extremely highly in terms of performance and cleanup.
