William Bounds Limited - Sili Gourmet Sili Steamer Review

By the end of this week, we will be moved in to our new residence.  I'm definitely ready.  The place will be more accommodating for my family.  One of the very few downfalls though, is that the kitchen cabinet space is limited.  Because of this I'm grateful for any spacesaver products. 

William Bounds Limited, known for their pepper mills, sent me a Sili Gourmet Sili Steamer Basket to review.  Vegetables, fish, meats and grains can be steamed in the Sili Steamer Set.  Made of colorful green silicone, it has a collapsible, space-saving base. The Sili Steamer Set also comes with a clear silicone lid that securely fits on top, preventing steam from escaping. Made with functional silicone that is heat-resistant to 500 degrees F, the new Sili Steamer Set allows anyone to be creative in their cooking. Thanks to its collapsible design, it fits easily in any kitchen drawer or cabinet. The Sili Steamer Set comes in bright Green, with a clear lid.

Before even using the Sili Gourmet Sili Steamer Set from William Bounds, I was impressed with how it folds flat when not in use.  It easily fits into one of my kitchen drawers, taking up hardly any space at all.  When I am ready to steam vegetables or meats, the base folds out accordian-style to make it taller.  The lid secures into place to keep the steam from escaping.  The foods I've steamed in it come out tasting the way I like them.  The holes on the bottom of the steamer drain out excess water and juice.  I haven't tried to see if it holds true, but I wash out the steamer immediately after I cook vegetables with sauce in it because I don't want the sauce staining it. 

William Bounds offers classic and contemporary salt and pepper milles, along with other high-quality items for your kitchen and for entertaining.  Browse their site,, to discover traditional mills, hand-painted art pieces, modern silicone cooking accessories, elegant serving pieces, and spices.

I received product for review from Field Marketing & Media on behalf of William Bounds.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Interesting - do you use it in the microwave or on a cooking pot? I use those steamer plastic bags and really need to find a better solution!
