Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Basket jumps I try to use the baskets in a pot of boiling water with pasta, but the baskets jumps around and after I turn the flame down, it lessens, but the water doesn't boil. 10-10-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by Basket jumps all over he place. The product is made great, good quality, nice hook. However, The basket jumps all over the place every time I use it. Just impossible to cook. I tried turning down the heat but I loose my boil. 09-21-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chef Jack Great for any kitchen. Pasta, Deep Fry anything that needs to be drained/ strained. Clip on side attaches to pot while draining. Very hard to find something as versitle as this. 08-14-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love These. Eliminates The Need For A Collender These baskets are so versatile. I used mine today to make several different kinds of pasta in the same pot of boiling water. Once one variety finished cooking, I just lifted the basket out of the pot, strained the water, dumped the pasta in a bowl and began with the second batch of pasta. The mesh is fine enough to even cook small pastas like tiny shells or Ditalini but yet the water drains quickly once lifted from the water. Two nice features are the silicone handles which remained cool to the touch despite me having the baskets submerged for at least 40 minutes. The other nice feature is the hook on the side of the baskets which allow you to hang the baskets on the side of the pot while the water is draining. We generally eat healthy in my house and I probably wouldn't use them for deep frying foods but you certainly could use them for that. These baskets would make a great gift and I'm probably going to order several more sets and give them as gifts. 06-07-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this mesh Great mesh baskets, sizes are just right for steaming or deep frying, nothing can slip through the openings like deep fryer baskets do. Made very well, nothing cheap about these. 05-14-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mesh Straining Baskets The quiatly of these Baskets are much more than I would have thought. You simply couldn't buy this in stores. Well worth buying these baskets 04-28-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by Doesn't Fit The steamer baskets look well made. I don't use them because they didn't fit in my Cook Essential pots. 04-26-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by Doesn't work with Flat Lids Let me first say that when I opened the box and took the baskets out I was very impressed by the weight. These are NOT flimsy baskets. They are very well constructed. That said, sadly, I had to return them because the lid of my 4 qt pot doesn't fit because of the handle of the basket. If the handle wasn't there I could have used them. Since I was primarily going to use them for steaming a tight lid is necessary. If you can find a way to have the handle lay down flat I would try these again. (I have All Clad pots and my lids are not domed. They are flat lids.) 04-25-16
