Have you ever bought something on a whim, simply because you have no impulse control? I do this ALL the time, and I usually end up with a serious case of buyer’s remorse. Cases in point: avocado slicer, Slap Chop, olive pitter… and that’s just to name a few! However, every once in a while I’ll pick up something that is sort of life changing and I can’t even fathom how I ever got along without it.

That’s what happened with this Steamer Set from Le Creuset. I immediately fell in love with the whimsical detailing of the packaging. In fact, I even tried to keep the uber cute box (although I’m not sure what purpose it would serve), but that decision was quickly vetoed by Brian and off it went into the recycling bin.

Before receiving this Le Creuset Steamer Set, I got by with a two options: a cheap-o collapsible metal steamer insert that was truly more trouble than it was worth, and a silicone insert that was kind of cumbersome to use. They were each as annoying as each other, and resulted in a layer of dust accruing on both gadgets.

The day I received the Le Creuset Steamer Set in the mail I surveyed the fridge for something to steam and opted for fresh green beans. The 3 quart capacity allowed me to steam about 5 servings of beans with ease and I was immediately smitten. The steamer is also multipurpose and can easily double as a covered casserole dish.

If you are doing some last minute shopping for Mother’s Day, I definitely think the Le Creuset Multi-Pot Steamer Set would make a perfect gift for  a mom that loves to cook and seems to have everything for her kitchen. It’s versatility alone is worth investment. I’ve become a steaming fool since the Le Creuset Steamer Set came into my life, steaming broccoli, corn, more green beans, even shrimp! We’re certainly eating healthier, that’s for sure.
