Asparagus Steamer 

An asparagus steamer is a type of cookware designed for preparing asparagus. The asparagus steamer consists of a long and narrow wire basket, a steaming pot, and a lid. The wire basket holds a large quantity of asparagus upright. The upright position allows the hard, woody stems to cook in approximately 5 cm (2 inches) of boiling water while the tips of the asparagus gently steam. Water is placed in the bottom of the steaming pot and brought to a boil. The asparagus stalks are arranged in the wire basket (spears upward) and lowered into the boiling water. When the spears become just tender, the basket is removed and the water is drained away.

The asparagus steamer also steams a variety of other foods such as potatoes, broccoli, corn, carrots, artichokes, and shellfish.
