Just used this well-made All-Clad steamer insert in my 4-qt. All-Clad sauce pan tonight to steam fresh broccoli in for supper. The insert worked marvelously and the broccoli turned out perfectly! We call ourselves "food snobs", as we are much more picky than other people we know, on eating quality food, on how well food is prepared, and how good it tastes. With this in mind, my husband remarked how the broccoli was not crunchy, but also not mushy...just perfect! We will be using this product a lot in the future...just beware that, unfortunately, it is NOT made in the USA like I thought it would be; all of my All-Clad pans ARE made in the USA. This insert is made in China; in the future, I would like to see more products made in the USA, as we need more American jobs here, that Americans can LIVE on!
