Rated 1 out of 5 by QVCEnthusiast 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 WinterParkDiva 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 Verified Reviewer 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.

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.

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 GofG Steaming mad
It works as a steamer, but the top lid does not snap in place. Not at all impressed.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hot in Az Makes steaming veggies in mircowave easy.
Love this for steaming veggies in the microwave so easy and then can store leftovers in fridge in the container easily. It came in a set of 2 so gave 1 to a friend, can't use 2 myself. Easy to clean and have placed in dishwasher with no problems. Would highly recommend running thru dishwasher before 1st use to get rid of 'plastic' odor. Purchased the purple color and like it very much.

Was not impressed first use was cooking bacon in the microwave and they melted some.
