Using a Pasta Insert as a Steamer Basket

Philly Ray | Mar 22, 2013 07:03 AM

I have a pot that came with a steamer basket and a pasta insert. But sometimes, I find that the basket is too small for things like dungeness crabs, lobsters, etc. Has anyone ever used their pasta insert as the steamer basket?

The only issue I see is that since the pasta insert is so deep, there isn't much room left to add water.
