What sets this stainless-steel steaming basket apart from others is its innovative design: a pop-up handle provides an extended reach for safe and easy removal, and then presses down and locks for compact storage. Extendable, telescoping, stay-cool handle allows for safe and easy insertion and removal from even the deepest pots; locks down for compact storage. Holes in handle allow the basket to be lifted with a fork. Handle may be removed completely for steaming large items like fish fillets. Fold-out feet keep steamer 1 3/4" above water and fold down for storage. Fits pots 8" diam. or larger. Dishwasher safe.
