How to make a steamer pot using household objects.

Step 7: Using you steamer pot.

To use the steamer set you have just completed just set it on the stove and turn on the burner. If you have a clear lid like my pot, you will see the steam start to fog up the glass. To get the water to boil quicker, you can add a small amount of salt to it.

Just remove the lid, put your vegetables on the plate, and replace the lid. Make sure the vegetables aren't too big and keeping the lid from closing tightly. If the lid is on incorrectly, the steam will escape and the vegetables won't get cooked.

Cooking time will vary. You can check on your vegetables as often as you would like, but make sure you secure the lid each time.
