I love that I can use this with different pot sizes. I have a very small, though well equipped, kitchen and I was a professional chef with my own restaurant. Now as a dedicated home cook there are always choices to be made on what gets used often enough to be kept handy and what gets stored for occasional use. This made it, right away, into the \"keep handy\" area. It's especially good for reheating as I don't use a microwave. It didn't make the cut.
