Steamer racks are a multi-functional kitchen tool. They can safely hold vegetables in the pot so that they can be steamed, helping to retain valuable nutrients. They can also be used for warming up or softening rolls, buns and other foods. Steamer racks have grills that allow for steam to circulate around the food and legs that allow them to be raised above the water in the steam pan. They can also be easily stacked and are dishwasher safe.
