I have a 6 month old baby and I was determined to make my own baby food affordable and easily. I really did not want to spend the money on the expensive baby food makers when I can do it easily and much more inexpensively myself. I have a high speed blender, but I did not have a way to easily steam veggies. I wanted to steam them vs boiling, etc. to maintain the nutrients. I received this vegetable steamer and have been very satisfied with it. The collapsible feature has been super helpful, since I can easily open/close it based on the size of the pot I am using. It is able to expand from 5.9 inches to 9.84 inches. When full collapsed, it is easy to store as well. I love the easy cleanup- just throw it in the dishwasher! It is stainless steel, so I know it will hold up over time. It also included a peeler, which has been helpful to peel carrots and sweet potatoes before steaming them. It peels easily and requires very little effort on my part. It cleans up easily or can be thrown into the dishwasher. Even though I got this primarily to make baby food, I have used it to steam veggies for dinner time. It does a great job. My veggies are brightly colored, retain nutrients and are soft and easy to eat. It has an 18 month warranty- so it is good to know that they stand behind their product. Overall, this steamer and peeler work great and I have been very happy with this purchase.
