Hi Lawrence, yes the centre lifting handle does unscrew. It is probably not designed to be removed and replaced on a daily basis, but it can be taken off to leave a clear space. regards, Bob

Hi, The steamer is 14cm when closed and 24cm when fully open. When fully open the steamer is nearly flat. This is a great little device to have, it's height is small enough to fit in standard pans.

Personally I would say no, there are tiny steam holes, but as it is something I haven't considered it could be worth a try, anyway this is a great product for steaming any vegetable. Hope this helps and good luck.
