I have an Oxo Good Grips salad spinner that I like a lot. Wash greens, spin dry, and can even serve a salad in the bowl.

My only steamer is my Everything Pot that my wife and I got for a wedding present - almost 20 years and still going strong. I Googled it and I don't think it's made any more, at least I couldn't find anything like it. Its a nice stock pot, but also has an insert which can be used to hold veggies for steaming or as a pasta cooker.

The OXO salad spinner works great and is easy to clean.

You can get stainless stackable steamers for the wok. Just like the bamboo but SS.

You can also get a collapsible SS basket for steaming. The basket can work in a number of different pans. They are inexpensive and available in a supermarket.
