Asparagus Pot with Steamer Basket
I love asparagus but have always struggled finding the right pot to cook it in. I generally used too big a pot and it took forever for the water to boil, or too small a pot that required cutting the asparagus into 2 inch pieces. In both cases, the asparagus cooked unevenly! Who likes mushy asparagus – yuk.
I finally purchased an All-Clad Asparagus Pot with a Steamer Basket and my asparagus is crisp-tender, every time! The pot cooks the asparagus evenly by holding it upright. The tender tips are farthest from the heat while the thicker stem is just above the boiling water. If you’re an asparagus lover, this pot is for you!
You may be thinking, but it’s only for asparagus… Not so, it also works great for steaming haricot verts, boiling eggs and it’s my go to pot for cooking a couple of ears of corn. It has become one of my must-have pans.
