Product Pick of the Week: Universal Microwave Steamer


Yes, you read that right.  This week our Product Pick goes to this Whirlpool Universal Microwave Steamer (part number 8205262RB).


If you didn’t already know, in addition to millions of OEM appliance replacement parts we also carry a wide variety of appliance accessories, cleaners, tools, gadgets, and more ranging from Emergency Radios to Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer attachments.  But this week, we’ll be focusing on this Microwave Steamer.

Constructed out of dishwasher and microwave safe hard plastic, this three piece microwave steamer makes for a great addition to any kitchen.  Not only is it durable, but it’s also a great size measuring in at approximately 13.75 in  x  8.5 in x 5.25 in. This steamer is perfect for vegetables (fresh or frozen), fish, rice, chicken, and more.

How it Works


The steamer uses a two-tiered, 3-piece system.  The first tier holds the water, while the second slotted tier holds the items to be steamed.  As the water heats up, the steam is able to pass through the slots to cook the food while the lid prevents it from escaping.

Simply prepare the steamer as directed in the User Guide (included) and soon you’ll have a quick and convenient dish steamed to perfection right in your microwave. It’s great to use at home, but also convenient enough to use at work too.

It is important to note that this steamer is intended for cooking, not storing or transporting food.  If you do plan to use it on the go, you may want to place your food in a separate container until you’re ready to cook it.
