This steamer is awesome. Firstly, it is very practical. I encountered steamers that have containers that are always the same standard sizes which are not overly large in length or width. The only way to compensate this is by letting you stack up the racks. With this steamer, it is a very decent size so at least you can put more stuff into the containers. Also the containers are BPA-free plastic and the steamer is very easy to use. I gave this to my mom and she loves it and I plan to give this to other folks as well. I would certainly recommend this to anyone who wants a steamer.
