    The wife has been making gourmet homemade tamales the last month or so. Until now she had to either cook them in the over using the broiler tray with water to steam them or cook them in small batches in an electric steamer. The wet towel covering the tamales in the oven caught fire twice and really heated up the house, and the electric streamer was way too slow. I went to WalMart and bought this steamer. First off - it is HUGE. So, you better have a place to store it. Second, unless you are making a ton of tamales or have need to steam a large whole lobster, you can probably do with the smaller size. We put about 60 tamales in our pot and had room for about a dozen more. We used it on a gas stove and it worked great. took about 90 minutes to steam all the tamales. No need to refill the water and no fire worries. The only down side I see is this is not a heavy duty pot. It will dent and if you're going to use it alot, I'd recommend buying a heavier more expensive one. For us though, we will only use it maybe 5 times a year so the price and quality fit our needs. You'll also have to hand wash this baby as it is not going to fit in the dishwasher. It will stain upon its first use, but I really didn't expect it to look new for long.

    I have had this steamer for a little over two years I only use it to steam tamales it is pretty big in size which is great. The only not so good thing about it is that the steel inside of it has been discoloring since the first time I used it so it doesnt look very pretty...but other than that its great.

    I want to use this pot for crabs, but I want to make sure there is enough room under the steam tray.

    • A. There is roughly 4 inches between the bottom and the steamer tray, you can also flip the steamer tray upside down and insert it into the pot, giving you an additional 1/2" for water. When I used it to steam tamales, I believe I put in about 2 quarts of water. You would have plenty of room for water for steaming crabs. :)

    • A. If your crabs are smaller than lobsters, there is enough room under the steam tray. There is almost 2 3/4" between the bottom of the pan and the bottom of the steam tray.

    • A. The tray sits low in the pot around 2.5 inches (where you see the band on the pot). I think you would have no trouble steaming crabs. I put a 1/2 gallon jar on the tray for canning. It works great for that also, as I could cover the jar in water while it sat on the tray the water boiled but did not boil over.

    • A. The pot is 12-1/2" tall inside; with the steam tray right side up it's 10-1/4" from the top so 2-1/4" under it. If you turn the tray upside down it's 9-1/4" over & 3-1/4" under.
