Sistema Klip it Microwave 2-piece Steamer Set
My husband loves steamed veggies. These are great!
Took too long to steam veggies
I ordered this set a while ago and ended up returning.
I tried steaming broccoli in the larger bowl and it took forever to soften up. I had to keep increasing the time on my microwave (over 15 minutes) whereas I normally steam broccoli much faster in a regular pot.
As good a steamer as anything else...
This product does just as well as other microwave steamers I own (Pampered Chef and Weight Watchers), although I have yet to find a use for the small one. As for the larger steamer, I find the insert slits difficult to clean, and I have no idea what that center "post" is for...it's too hot to pick up by hand, and too slippery to pick up with tongs or other utensils. Still, if this is your first or only microwave steamer, it's just as good as any other I've tried, although I find the clips very difficult to lock. And the purple color is nice!
these are awesome
I have had Microwave items that i use to cook in. But these are by far the best so i am throwing all the others out and using these only....is there a cookbook for these....?
I had these for a while before using them. I have them in red. I have only prepared veggies (asparagus and broccoli) in them, so I can't speak to the bacon issue. But if you would like to steam your veggies to perfection in a short amount of time these will do the job. I only wish they were larger to accommodate things like asparagus better.
I've had my sistema now for about a month and I love it!! I use it everyday I use the plate for steaming fish and the bigger one for my veggies best things ever!! Even purchased the rice multi cooker and it is amazing sistema is a great product!!
The first time I used this to cook bacon in the microwave the plastic tray melted onto the bacon!! Only time I've ever had that happen when cooking anything in the micowave!!

I have this set in red. I've used it to make two salmon fillets in the microwave. They cooked perfectly and were very moist. Clean-up was easy and they store leftovers very well for reheating. These have become my go-to microwave cooking containers.
I've only used my Sistema to steam corn on the cob (from frozen), but it worked perfectly...can't wait to try on lots of other veges!! Thanks for yet another, great product!!
Average plastic containers
I haven't used the largest container yet but according to the recipe flyer, I was supposed to be able to cook bacon in the small container using the grid. Upon doing this, the grid melted. The container was fine. I have no doubt the large container will do what it's supposed to do. I will not try cooking bacon again.
Great microwave product.
I use these to steam baby potatoes, vegetables, and reheat leftovers, in my microwave.
I bought the red. They clean up easily and food doesn't stain them. I would definately recommend these.
Great Microwave Utensils
I do not have this particular configuration. Bought a large and small 2 pc set some time ago and I use them constantly! The interior piece makes a great strainer even if not being used as the steamer insert. I highly recomment them for the person who likes speed and convenience.
