An Asparagus Steamer is a narrow insert that holds Asparagus spears upright in another holding container that contains water to generate Steam. The beauty of this kitchen tool is, it allows the Boiling water to cook the bottoms of the Asparagus stalks while just Steaming the Asparagus tips.

Culinary Uses

An Asparagus Steamer can be used to Steam any long, thin Vegetable. It is also handy any time you want to easily separate some ingredients from your main dish. For example, placing your Mirepoix ingredients or Aromatics into the steamer, will make them much easier to remove from the pot.
