Product Description

What could be healthier than steamed veggies on a bed of rice or pasta?With this stackable set you can utilize the steam from whatever's simmering below to cook whatever's on top. How's that for cooking efficiency?

Functional as well as beautiful, this 3-quart saucepot and 2-quart steamer insert are made of heavy 18/10 stainless steel polished to a mirror finish. The pot has an aluminum core in its base to spread heat quickly and evenly. The core is completely clad in stainless steel so, like the rest of the pot and the steamer, the pot bottom resists corrosion and discoloring and cleans up easily. Thick rolled rims add durability and make it possible to pour from the pot without dripping. Because the pot is 4-1/2 inches deep and comes with a tight-fitting, domed lid, it is roomy enough to simmer stocks and soups and can also be used for braising veal shanks or for cooking chili on the stovetop or in the oven. (The handles are oven-safe to 350 degrees F and stay cool on the stovetop.) The pot and steamer are dishwasher-safe and come with a lifetime warranty against defects. --Fred Brack

Customer Reviews:

  • Love It
    I really enjoy the 3-qt. steamer. It is the right size for me. It is attractive and I like the heavy weight. I recommend it....more info
  • great to cook in and easy to clean!
    This is a great size pot!! It fits nicely in my cluttered cabinet! The pot is light in weight, even with the steamer insert, but it is not flimsy and is well made. The handles stay cool and the lid seals on nicely. Great for steaming vegetables, preparing rice dishes and any other recipe where a larger pot & steamer would be inappropriate....more info
  • Good Pot But Be Aware of Handles
    I have owned this pot for less than a year. It is a perfect size for steaming veggies for 3 or 4 people and it does a nice job of it. I use it a lot. It will hold much more than one chicken's egg! I like the handle design BUT I am very disappointed that one of the handles actually has a large piece chipped off of it. I never expected this to happen. This is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. Also, the finish is difficult to keep nice looking. Water seems to "stain" it. However, this is not a priority for me....more info
  • Genuine Classic! Functional, Classic AND Affordable
    My search for a steamer began when family members decided they wanted hot dogs prepared at home to be steamed rather than boiled or microwaved (the steaming method is used by many hot-dog vendors). Naively, I thought it would be a simple matter to locate a steamer. Instead I found many choices for electric steamers and a couple steamer inserts. The only authentic steamer I could locate is the Farberware Classic Steamer. I'm very pleased with the product and my only criticism is it would be nice if Farberware offered their Classic Steamer in at least one larger size. If you are looking for the genuine article, this is IT. Made me regret not purchasing Farberware earlier. Absolutely impeccable quality and pricing. It's like jewelry for your kitchen! I have found the bottom pan most helpful and I like having one product that is able to perform different functions. Please as other reviewers have stated just remember to lift the lid off away from you and turn off the burner before attempting to move the Steamer. I like to take the contents out of the steamer using tongs or spoons because that way the water can just cool and steam can vent, that way I avoid having to cope with the very hot water. You will like this unit and it is so classic I recognized Farberware cookware being used in the old tv show "Leave It To Beaver" -- when a company/product lasts this long there is definitely quality involved!...more info
  • I like it!
    I'm impressed with this. I would have given it a 4.5 stars if that was an option. It steams well. Here is something that I did that puts this baby up there with the big dogs (Calphalon etc..). In error, I forgot one time to put water in to steam some brocolli. I left this thing.. cooking for about 20 minutes before I realized my error. It did stain the bottom of the pan, but, no so that it causes any distaste upon future use. I've done this before (I'm sorry to say) with other pans, and they've been rendered useless garbage. So, hats off- and I'd recommend buying this. Oh, why not 5 stars? Just a 'tad' too small- I would like the steaming basket to be about an inch deeper....more info
  • not impressed
    It's described as "stainless steel", but brand new, the bottom had marks that looked like hard water stains. I managed to get them out with vinegar and water, but it has been picking up stains ever since, including fingerprints on the outside, which soap and water won't remove, more hard water stains, and heavy marks at the water line. The pot has always been hand washed and dried.

    Worse, the plastic handles melt and bubble, giving off that nauseating burning plastic smell. As a steamer, one would think it would be designed to withstand high heat. One handle came loose after a few uses. It is easily screwed back on, but I think it's just more evidence of shoddy workmanship.

    Overall this is a very cheap pot in feel and construction. Pot is made in China. Perhaps there are quality control issues, and I just got a bad one, though I am guessing the handles are the same on all of them....more info

  • CAN'T DO WITHOUT THIS HANDY POT
    This little steamer is the most used pot in my kitchen.
    REASONS I REACH FOR IT EVERYDAY:
    A. NO HANDLE TO EXTEND OVER FRONT OF COOKTOP
    B. NO HANDLE TO EXTEND OVER ANOTHER BURNER
    C. HOLDS ENOUGH VEGETABLES FOR SIX
    D. COMPACT TO STORE
    E. EASE OF USE ENCOURAGES ME TO COOK "HEALTHY"

    I have purchased 9 of these steamers and have encouraged friends to buy them. Total count of steamers in use by my friends is 27!! (and not a one of them would part with it)...more info
  • I have liked this pot
    It is what it advertises a great quality stainles steel pot that is 3 quarts large. ( if you are not familiar with 3 quarts take a 1 quart piece of plastic from your cole slaw order and fill it up and pour it out 3x and thats 3 quarts. To measure the size of the steamer just pour out 2x.

    There is no large handle sticking out and the handles do get very hot. So make sure to use potholders. Overall a great product. Excellent quality and looks great. I use it daily and love it. ...more info
  • Works well
    We use this pot for steaming corn on the cob, and can easily fit three or four ears in the steaming basket. A little steam leaks out from between the basket and the pot. The bottom pot is a handy size for cooking spaghetti, although as someone else noted, you still need to use a collander to drain the water. We haven't had any problems with the handles, as someone else mentioned; I think that reviewer must have been referring to a different item. The Farberware Classic handles are oven safe to 350 degrees, if I remember correctly. It comes out of the dishwasher looking great. The pot bottom will scorch fairly easily when cooking certain foods, as it is uncoated....more info
  • Dissapointed with this saucepot
    I was so dissapointed when I receive this saucepot. So smaller. I do not know what I can do with this steamer. You can only steam one egg each time. It does not worth this price.
    Moreover, be careful of the handle. It will become very hot during cook....more info
  • Another Great Farberware Product !
    This is another great Farberware product we purchased to help stock our son's first college apartment. He thought it was a pasta cooker, was a little disappointed (at first), that it was a 'small' steamer, what could you possibly cook in there ? Well, he is actually cooking/steaming fresh vegatables, and enjoying them. He has fallen in love with steamed potatoes!

    The pot is actually small (3 quart) with about a 4 inch side, so it can also be used for servings of soup, pasta sause or that small batch of chilli. The steamer pot fits snuggly into the pot, with just the right size holes to allow the steam in, but not the product out. AND the lid fits tightly, allowing for a quick and fast steam cycle.

    Overall, a great product, that is being used much more than originally thought that it would be used. Much more than just a vegatable steamer....more info

  • This is a great steamer
    I never wanted to hassle with the trouble of a bamboo steamer. This pot works great for quickly getting good results with fresh and frozen veggies. In retrospect I think I might need a bigger one and I may buy one that has a larger capacity, but that isn't the fault of the product. This does a great job and with a quick rinse of hot water and toss it in the dishwasher it's clean. I have had no issues with quality at all. This was a great buy for the price and I presume it will last my entire lifetime. Highly recommended!...more info

  • Great pot....
    This is by far is one of the most used pieces of cookware in my cooking arsenal. My Aunt had purchased this for my birthday about 5 years ago, but over time I mistakenly have boiled things and have put too little water in the pot, resulting in the water burning off completely and then adding discoloration to the pot. Several burns later the pots had lost a lot of its quality and value [all my fault :-( ].

    So I threw that one away and bought another one. It's a great pot but make sure you have enough water in the pot and you keep the flame low. If you mistakenly burnout the water in the steamer while it's still on the stove, the shine is gone. It will still function as expected, it just won't look as shiney as before....more info

  • Great Steamer!
    This steamer is not too big and not too little. Just right for cooking for 1 or a crowd. I like the fact that even if the water is boiling, I can lift the top part of the pan with the vegetables and see how much water is left without using a pot holder. The handles stay cool. I highly recommend this steamer. ...more info
  • A fine piece but watch those handles
    Most of my cookware is Revere so my experience with Farberware is limited. With that in that mind I must say that this steamer fits a perfect niche in my collection. I hate hauling out my stock pots for pasta side dishes and my 2qt pots kept boiling over. This size is great and the roomy steamer instert will hold a medley of vegetables without a hitch. One problem though, my Revere handles have always stayed cool on my stove. I went to grab this pot and managed to burn both my hands. I have been spoiled by whatever Revere does with its handles so I just have to remember to use hot pads. The handles seem very durable and the pot itself is solid. If the handles stayed cool like my Revere Ware then this would have been a solid five stars....more info
  • Farbareware Classic Cookware
    I enjoy my Farbarware Classic cookware. It heats up fast and even. I like the stainless steel-clad bottom much better that the old aluminum-clad bottom. The stainless steel bottom is much easier to clean off tuff grease stains if you have to you an oven cleaner. I lost all of my Farbareware cookware to Hurricane Katrina and have replaced it. needed. ...more info
  • Great steamer, but handles get HOT! (UPDATED 06-02-09)
    Maybe "A customer from CLEVELAND, OH" was trying to cook more than one ostrich egg, because this thing has lots of room - as any 3qt pot will - for MANY normal sized chicken eggs. This thing is for steaming, anyway!

    This is a great steamer. The only thing I don't like about it is the lack of a longer handle to stay cool away from the flame/burner. The small handles on this thing get very hot, and after cooking my ostrich eggs I have never been able to grab it off the stove without pot holders. High quality, definitely worth the price.

    UPDATED 06-02-09:
    I've had this steamer pot since Oct. 2002, and it has steamed tons of broccoli, artichokes, and asparagus. Aside from the discoloration of the inside/bottom of the pan (caused by forgetting once to put water in the thing with the burner turned on high - Oops!), it's still in excellent condition and working great....more info
