Basket or rack for steaming lobsters

realhound | Jul 11, 2008 01:19 PM

I want to steam some lobsters; have the stock pot but the recipe I have recommends using a steamer basket to set the lobsters on, so they won't sit in the boiling water. I have an old collapsible steamer basket, good for steaming vegetables and very inexpensive originally, but it has VERY short feet, much less than the one inch recommended for steaming for 10 minutes. If I put an inch of water in the pot, the creatures would still be sitting in the water!

Any suggestions on where to find a basket or rack (my stock pot didn't come with one) to elevate the 'sters?
