I just love how it looks!!! Michael LaRoche January 19th, 2013 · That is great! It acts as a double boiler sort of… Well the ceramic body fits into a 7-8″ metal pot, add water to the bottom pot, place steamer, boil water, add broccoli or brussel sprouts or other, steam until tender. When steamed vegetables are done serve directly in this pot. Place on a hot pad. Enjoy! I am now making this pot with a plate to catch drainage and act as a hot pad. Let me know how you like it.
