    I bought this Microwave Steamer because the two that I already have are now quite old.

    The Sistema is very well made of quality plastic.

    Please be aware though, that despite the description and the comments in other reviews, I would warn that it is not burn proof, so please take care. When taking it out of the microwave, heat can be felt on the upturned corners and the container does get hot. Make sure the centre vent is fully open and that you take great care when unclipping and opening the lid so that you do not get burned by the steam escaping. The plastic also becomes a bit pliable with the heat.

    If you do as I do, and use the bottom of the steamer (underneath the basket part) for food, there is not much room. I only use a steamer for vegetables, putting the potatoes at the bottom and the other vegetables in the basket. The potatoes have to be cut fairly small, which is no problem if you are going to mash them. I find that with my 900w microwave the cooking time with veg for the 2 of us is around 14 mins, but you would need to refer to your own Microwave Instruction Booklet for your timings.

    The Microwave Steamer has such a nice snap shut system that it could also be used for storage in the freezer. This product is a good buy.

    I have several of these now,k and Sistema are durable, do not stain and one can use them like a saucepan. I also use mine to eat out of as well! The base and lid are strong and smooth and easy to clean, machine or by hand. The clips would appear to catch dirt, but they do not - they open right back, but the material from which Sistema make their products, is exceptionally silky smooth and seems to shed off any liquid or dirt. i recommend these to anyone who uses a microwave a lot - it makes boiling and steaming, even baking, par for the course. The venting lid is far better in design than some toughened glass types of product, and it too seems to shed dirt - just squelch up and down in soapy hot water and rinse! Yes, it is also adequate to cope with a lot of steam - and when closed, is freezer-tight!

    On one hand I feel I should praise the effort, because availability of BPA free containers is so limited and this one has very good design and features, and as such, this container is a must have in every kitchen (I honestly believe at some point in near future we will be looking back at BPA and phthalates in and around food the same way we think of lead and mercury now). It has epic steam tray, it doesn't stain, without a steam tray it makes for a nice, deep container to repackage your ready meals into and despite its big size it's designed to fit perfectly on a turn table of a standard 17 litre + microwave.

    On the other hand it's a bit of a fail for use with any food that needs 10+ minutes cooking time. Because of the hard plastics used, this container heats like crazy. Way more than any container I have ever had. I'd even say it could be dangerous to use by kids. It gets hot. And I mean HOT. If you take the typical floppy, thin, food tray that usually comes with supermarket ready meals as a benchmark, at least after 10 minutes + 1 minute standby you can safely lift those trays up and remove them from microwave by the corners without burning your fingers. The Sistema container after 10 minutes reaches such extreme temperatures that it's impossible to hold it by any part of the container. The see through top has four handles on the corners and is fastened to the container with four clips, but the lid becomes very soft in high temperatures despite top vent and it bends easily. And as you hold the container with roughly 5 pounds of boiling food or liquid inside by two corners of the softened lid it often lets the scorching air/steam out of the corners thus burning your fingers even further.

    You can also use it for other things in the microwave oven. It is really just a plastic box with a tab at the top to let the steam out, but it is better than the plastic takeaway containers, because you can leave the lid on and it stops things exploding all over the microwave.

    If I had known how convenient these microwave steamers were I would have bought them sooner. It makes steaming vegetables so much quicker and easier.

    While there are no definitive instructions with the steamers as to how long you need to steam any particular piece of veg after a bit of trial and error I found that a full load of broccoli takes less than 5 minutes.

    They have a pressure release valve on the lid so there is no danger of an exploding steamer box.

    I was so impressed I bought as set of three different sizes and a porridge bowl.

    For Sunday lunch I use the family sized 3.2 litre steamer, for a quiet dinner for two the 2.4 litre steamer and for the nights when I am Billy No Mates I use the little 1.4 litre steamer.
    They make portion sizing easy.

    Highly recommended.
