Hi Kathleen......
For one thing it's much easier to clean than my old metal steamer like this one....

Fox Run Craftsmen 5591 Steamer,Stainless Steel Adjustable: K

And I never burn myself with the silicone one, and it is great in a skillet, or nearly any size pot. I know you'd love it too.

Thanks! Easy to clean is always a plus. And I imagine that it is less likely to harbor growth than other kinds of materials. I will definitely keep my eye out for it.

I have been a bit leery of silicon because it feels so floppy to me. Coming from a cast iron background, the less than rigid material has made me nervous. However, I see more and more things made from silicon. The colors and the lightweight factors added with the versatility make it very appealing to me.

Silicone baster? I'll have to check that out.

Kathleen, I also love my silicone basting/pastry brush for the ease of cleaning...I never believed my bristle one was really clean, and no problem with silicone....look at this.......

Amazon.com: Norpro Silicone Basting or Pastry Brush. 9" long with blue bristles: Home & Garden

I have a basting brush and agree: The bristle one never seemed clean and the silicone one feels clean when it is washed. Also, mine does a great job.
