Stainless Steel Mesh Steamer Basket for Instant Pot
A Better Way to Cook
Steaming is one of the healthiest and fastest ways to cook your food and has been used since ancient times. One of the amazing benefits of food steaming that people enjoy most is its ability to preserve the nutrients, minerals, and the natural color and flavor of foods. Use spices and herbs to enhance food flavor and cook delicious meals. You can quickly cook meat, fish, shrimp, crab, clams, tamales, eggs and more! The options are limitless and steaming food is so convenient and easy.
To Your Health!
According to a world-renowned medical center, “You can reduce your chances of developing cancer and several chronic diseases by making healthy food choices. A diet rich in plant foods, whole grains and legumes can give your body the range of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants it needs to stay healthy.” Among the best vegetables for maintaining good health are cauliflower, broccoli, kale, brussel sprouts and bok choy – and, if you are going to cook them, lightly steaming is the best way. In fact, the health benefits and some foods, such as spinach, asparagus, mushrooms, carrots and cabbage, are enhanced by steaming, whereas boiling or microwaving destroys the cancer-fighting properties of most foods.
Steaming your food can help lower cholesterol. Since no oil is added to the cooking process, you don’t consume added fat or those saturated fats that contributes to high blood pressure and cholesterol. Steaming food is the healthiest and most natural way to cook your food.
Heavy-duty, Solid Construction Is Made to Last
The Casa Verde Steamer Basket is sold by people who actually use the product in Instant Pot cooking. We know that it is well-constructed to give you many years of reliable, healthy cooking. It is made from heavy-duty food-grade 304 stainless steel, with a secure food-grade silicone-lined handle for easy one-handed removal from your pressure cooker – and it folds down out of the way during use. Even after a quick steam release, the silicone-lined handle will be cool enough to hold after only about 30 seconds of cooling. And the silicone withstands heat far in excess of a pressure cooker or dishwasher. The feet stand 1 inch high (no need for a trivet) and are also lined with silicone that is non-skid and helps to prevent damaging surfaces such as your Instant Pot inner pot and granite counter tops. The strength of the Casa Verde Steamer Basket comes from its large top band, with a heavy 6.5mm roll around the rim, upheld by four, rigid 3mm support struts. Its strength is demonstrated by the fact that it will support over 30 lb. – well beyond anything encountered in the kitchen. Rust proof, dishwasher safe.
