I would not be without these. I hate soggy veg (from my childhood) and I want to make veggies as tasty as i can for my kids so that they enjoy them. These steamers are ideal. I have 3 so that i can have different veggies cooking in each pot depending on how long they take to cook. They fit perfectly in pots and are high enough off the base of the pot that I have never had an issue with there being too little water for the cooking time (some steamers are too low to the pot that in order to steam the veg rather than boiling it you are only able to add a little water and the water boils away quickly leaving your pans damaged). My husband does the washing up and it's certainly not his favourite thing to clean as he likes to clean each of the leaves which can take a while but if you are cooking your veggies right they shouldn't be mushy so shouldn't leave much to clean. I use mine almost daily and with that they last a good couple of years before the connection from the leaf to the base starts weakening and they fall off all the time.
