Sunsella Vegetable Steamer #Review #SunsellaVeggieSteamer

     It's been a little while since I've made home made meals as a go-to.  We're usually either too busy or I'm just not up for it.  So now that my kids are getting older and starting to act a bit better, I'm feeling a bit more like I'd like to start cooking again.  Problem is, I'm pretty much down to just frying pans and cookie sheets. I don't have a whole lot that says to me "Hey!  Cook something healthy with me!"  I really should be working on that.
     But I do no have a steamer, which I think is a great kitchen tool.  It really does WANT you to cook healthy and it's also really easy to use.  The styeamer that I have is the Sunsella Vegetable Steamer.  The part that most impressed me was how small it fold up.  This steamer is so compact that it's ridiculous.  Now, maybe I'm just completely naive when it comes to steamers because I've never really used one.  But it folds up to 5 1/3", isn't that small!?

     Granted, it is the smaller of the two sizes that they offer.  My family of seven is a pretty big family for today's standards and I'm not sure if this would steam enough veggies for my whole family.  But then, my husband would rather be thrown in the middle of the ocean than eat something green and my kids for the most part aren't huge on them, so maybe it would.  It expands to 9 1/3", their larger size expands to 10 2/5".

     The steamer sits on three feet that are about 7/8" and allow an inch to an inch and a half of water to sit in the bottom of the pan.  I'll be honest here and say that part of me wishes that it sat a bit higher because I am terrible at getting things off the stove or out of the oven when I need to, so higher legs equals more water and less chance of mishaps.  But the cool thing is that veggies should be done in under ten minutes, that might not even be enough time for ME to forget!

     To help get the steamer out of the pot when the vegetables are done, it comes with a pretty cool removable center stem with a loop that lets you pull it up.  And when you do pull it out, all the little holes in the sides and bottom strain the vegetables right into the pot.  It's a pretty neat design, really.  I think this is a great kitchen tool to have.  It fits just about anywhere and is really useful, especially in the fight to eat better.  Do you ever eat steamed veggies?
