Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it... I've looked at this item for ages, finally picking it up as a Lunch Time Special (great deal!) It has gotten a lot of use...needed new plate covers for microwave, have done veggies in it, reheated food in it and used as a drainer/strainer for fruit as well as tuna! I don't eat bacon so that solves any issues with that mess. Very, very happy with this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile When I saw this as a LT/LN Special, I was intrigued, that it might solve a specific, non-kitchen problem. I was bothered by the fact that my birdbath's top tier, where I put birdseed, keeps the seed wet after rains. I had recently purchased a square mesh container made specifically to prevent this, and it works, however it is small. This item can do the same, so this works well, since I now use one outside for the birdseed and one in the kitchen. I no longer use the birdbath top tier. I use this container on my front porch and the mesh one in the side yard. Thanks!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Completely Melted in Bacon Grease So, I bought 2 of these. I just recently used it for the first time. We don't eat much bacon in my house, but my son loves it. I bought these for him, since it would make it easier and less messy. The bottom of the container melted to a gooey, plastic mess in the bacon grease. I know that is NOT supposed to happen. I need to check to see if I can still return this and the unused one I have yet to use. I am extremely disappointed. If I could give this zero start I would. However, it did keep the splatter from the bacon off of everything, so I guess it gets 1 star for that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Disappointed With Few Benefits I was hoping to love this. I wish it was higher. I do use it for washing and straining fresh fruit. Blueberries are fine. Since strawberries are larger it is difficult to hold all at one time. I have not cooked in it other than steaming mixed vegetables. I haven't figured out how much water and how much time. The instruction sheet leaves a lot to be desired. I am afraid to microwave Bacon as one person said it ruined her device. Since I have several other strainers I liked this for the fact it has a bottom to catch the water that drains. I will use my other strainers for the larger fruit. I have not used the center strainer since I haven't bought tuna fish in years. I imagine that part works well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from terrible purchase I was excited to get these BUT was I disappointed when they arrived. They have a horrible smell. I have washed them several times and the smell remains. I have not used them at all because I am scared the smell will transfer to my food. To late to send them back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing I bought this mainly for doing bacon in the microwave & what a disappointment. It took forever & was impossible to clean. Would have sent it back but I tried it too late. I had bought two so I will be donating the new one to Salvation Army.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Invaluable Kitchen Gadget I bought one of these in 2005 off of an infomercial and use it nearly every day to drain, strain, dredge, defrost, marinate, steam, and cook. I'm either grabbing the entire thing or a piece of it for something I'm doing in the kitchen! Unfortunately I set mine next to a hot pan the other day and melted the side - fusing it together - so now I can't disassemble it to clean it thoroughly. I can't tell you how excited I was to see it on QVC! Now I can replace my old original model. Thanks QVC for always finding the Best products to keep us foodies happy!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Steaming mad It works as a steamer, but the top lid does not snap in place. Not at all impressed.
