The steamer is designed and manufactured by the International Innovation Company, the parent company of Tomorrow’s Kitchen and Vacu Vin.
The high temperature and shock-resistant Single Serve Steamer allows for quick, diverse and healthy cooking in a microwave, according to the company.
The steamer’s borosilicate glass bowl and silicone lid are especially designed to steam a one-person dinner or individual portions of vegetables or even meat, fish and poultry.
The product’s size and shape allows four steaming bowls to be combined together in a standard size microwave.
An integrated self-sealing valve at the top of the lid allows a small amount of steam to escape, preventing pressure from building up.
A drainage hole in the side of the lid allows the user to drains excess water, if needed, by lifting the lid into position. And the extended sides of the silicone lid make it easy to remove the lid from the bowl.
Both the bowl and the lid are dishwasher-safe. The steamer is available in grey or green.
