Amazing quality on this Multi Cooker Dutch oven
I love everything about this Tasty Stainless Steel 4-quart Dutch oven. First off it is made of high quality stainless steel and has a 3-ply base. This means it is bottom heavy and transfers heat evenly through the bottom of the pot and up on to the walls. I've cooked pasta, rice, mashed potatoes, chicken masala, and steamed veggies, all with great results and taste. Nothing was stuck to the bottom, but there is a trick to that: Start your stove on low, put the empty pot on the heat source to warm it up for a minute or two. Then raise the heat to medium and wait a couple more minutes till the empty pot gets real hot. To know when it's ready, splash a couple drops of water on the bottom and if the water starts to dance around, then it is ready for cooking. Once you start cooking, keep the heat on medium or lower and you won't have anything stick to the bottom. Takes a little practice though. The pot feels heavy for its size, which is what you want in a quality stainless steel pot. I love the fact that the lid is made of glass, so you can see what is happening inside, and it has the vent on the lid. It is dishwasher safe also. For the price, you are getting a very high quality product. Well worth it and I recommend it.
Crisp and Fresh
I received the Tasty 4 Quart Stainless Steel Multi Pot with Removable Steamer Basket and I was excited to try it. I have never used a pot with a steamer attached so I decided to try it out and make some vegetables. The pot worked well with the vegetables. I was able to cook the vegetables in the pot and strain them when I was done. The steamer cooked the vegetables perfectly and the vegetables remained firm and crisp. I am looking forward to using it as a stock pot for my soups and my broths. I will say I was surprised at how small it was. I am used to stock pots and steamers in a larger size, so this was perfect for me. When I want to make small batches and smaller portions, then it will come in handy. I like how the food cooks evenly and how everything stays crisp. Normally with stock pots you have a ton of product left over, with this size of pot, you can cook a smaller amount or a smaller portion. I am pleased with the product. I look forward to creating new dishes and trying out new recipes and ideas. I would recommend this product to family and friends for their cooking needs.
Perfect for Steaming Large Batches
My family was given about 5 lbs of fresh, just pulled from the dirt carrots. I was wondering what we were going to do with so many. My husband decided that we were going to steam the carrots to prevent spoilage and to provide food for our family during this pandemic (covid19 virus) that is worldwide.
The Tasty 4 Qt. Stainless Steel Multi Pot easily handled the 5 lbs. of carrots without any issues. Each batch was steamed for about 10 to 15 minutes each set on high heat. (stove setting 6 out of 10) The carrots were taken out when a fork was able to pierce, but not causing the carrots to turn to mush.
The multi pot was easy to clean up. Using mild dish soap, the pot wipes out nicely. I would recommend this Stainless Steel Multi Pot with Removable Steamer Basket by Tasty to everyone.

Very Well-Made Multi-Pot and Steamer
I'm loving this Tasty brand 4 quart stainless steel multi pot with the removable steamer basket. I was surprised how well this piece was made. For some reason, I expected an inexpensive aluminum type pot, but this is very sturdy. The pot itself has an 8 l/2" diameter and a steamer basket insert. The pot also has a very nice tempered glass lid with a steam vent so that things do not boil over. I have used it several times already. I think the thing that most attracted me to this piece was the steamer basket. The steamer basket also has an attached handle which slides into the basket when not needed. My family really loves freshly steamed vegetables, and this is perfect for that function! The base of the pot is 3-ply impact bonded and is nice and weighty so that it will not warp and end up sitting unlevel on the burners. This pot can also be used in the oven up to 350 degrees for 30 minutes. The pieces also are dishwasher safe and can be used in induction ovens, on electric or gas stoves, or on a glass smooth-top range. The only thing I could think of to improve this product would be to make the handles heat resistant. I would definitely recommend this pot to anyone. It is a nice versatile piece to add to a pot and pan collection.
Great little multipot
I absoutely enjoy cooking in this mutifuntional just perfect size for a family of 4 serving! The steamer basket has a handle on it which I love, easy to use and makes some great steamed broccoli! I also like the fact that it is a fast boling pot and gets things heated quickly. Stainless steel makes it pretty easy to clean as well.
I LOVE this pot!
I make homemade soups or stews on a regular basis. Yesterday, I made my soup using my new Tasty Brand 4-quart mirror-polished stainless-steel pot, and I couldn't have been happier with the results! It all cooked to perfection.
The riveted handles have slip/heat resistant covers, and the tempered glass lid has a steam vent that lets me view the food without removing the lid to see if the temperature is correct for simmering, or if it needed higher or lower heat. The deep steamer insert can cook a large amount of vegetables. The pot can be used on gas, electric, glass, ceramic, halogen, etc., and is dishwasher safe. I LOVE it!
Great Pot Tasty. You did it again!
I love love love my pot. I've had it for 3 days and have used it twice. I made Charro Beans and the beans DID NOT stick to the bottom of the pot with the lid on. The steamer hole did it's job perfectly. Today I'm making chicken soup. I took a pic so you can see what the pot looks like actually being used. I would definitely recommend this product, and! will be gifting them as Christmas gifts.
I absolutely love this pot
I can do many things at once with this pot. I have boiled eggs and steamed vegetables at the same time. I have cook pasta and steamed vegetables. I will definitely be buying more of these pots. It's easy to clean small but big enough to make a family meal. This has become my new favorite pot to cook in. This is a 10 of 10 for me.
I will recommend
Streams vegetables, cooks perfect pasta, and easy to use. I used the steamer insert and the water splashed up over the lid and onto the stovetop. It WAS just water so it cleaned up easy enough, but I think the lid could have been designed better. Super Easy Cleanup on the pot and steamer basket.
Takes a long time to heat water, but works ok
The Tasty 4 Quart Stainless Steel Multi Pot with Removable Steamer Basket takes a very long time to heat water. When the Lid is on the Pot, the Handle for the Steamer Basket is folded down and once the Cooking is complete and the Lid removed it's a bit hard to fold up the Handle because it's a bit rigid to begin with and when using it also gets hot and one needs to use Potholders and it's just hard to grasp the Handle to fold it up. So when I used it again, I left the Handle slightly up but low enough to still fit the Lid over it and when the Cooking/Steaming was complete I used Tongs to hook under the Handle to fold it up in order to take the Steamer Basket out. The Pot itself does it's Job and Food turns out well, other than taking forever to heat up the water.
Love it, works great!
I have been wanting a steamer pot for a while and I am so happy with this one, it's the perfect size and it works great. Right out of the package I was excited because of the size and the quality, I love that it is all stainless steel, it's not lightweight either, it's very sturdy and I love the weighted bottom for even cooking. The size of the basket is good, just right to fit a large head of brocolli, or cauliflower, even a small bag of red potatoes. The glass lid is nice to, I love the little vent hole to let out steam, also it fits well and is sturdy. Mainly I have used this for steaming veggies but it can also be used as just a pot, it's a perfect size to cook up soup for two or a side dish like mashed potatoes. Everything washes up easily and nicely, for me I prefer hand washing but I do appreciate that it is all dishwasher safe if I am not feeling like standing over the sink with a huge load of dishes. On looks alone I love it, the style is very classy and the shine on the stainless steel is brilliant. I do recommend this, it cooks very evenly, it has a great weight to it and is all around sturdy, definitely good quality that will last for years if you care for it.
Looks exactly as pictured!! Nice and heavy. Feels like it'll last a long time. I actually purchased for steaming dumplings and making steamed buns. Small capacity for stuff like that but since it can be used as a normal pot as well it makes up for that.
BEYOND A BLESSING!!
From soups and stews to sweet corn, pasta, rice and veggies; this gorgeous pot does it all! Very durable. Love the see through lid best of all! This pot makes cooking new recipes an exciting road trip! My first experiment was Jambalaya. As a vegetarian, I did not add any meat but rather a lot of Shrimp and sautéed an abundance of various veggies. Turned out sensational. Cooks everything quickly and very uniformly. I also recommend this for frying egg or spring rolls because of the depth of the pan; splattering is no longer a problem. I look forward to many one pot recipes with this, and also just using it as a steamer. The removeable basket is great because I can set it aside with the lid to keep food warm, while using the pot to proceed with further cooking. If you are bored with cooking, this lovely pot will revive your interest and all you feed and nurture will thank you!! (For exciting one pot recipes, go to Pinterest!)
I'm loving this Tasty brand 4 quart stainless steel multi pot with the removable steamer basket. I was surprised how well this piece was made. The pot has a very nice tempered glass lid with a steam vent. The steamer basket also has an attached handle which slides into the basket when not needed.
I like the fact that it is a fast boiling pot and gets things heated quickly.
High quality cooker that's easy to clean
Has a nice thick base that feels sturdy compared to others that feel flimsy. It's great that it's dishwasher safe. Very easy to clean. We have cooked several meals with it including rice noodles and it worked nicely. We eat a lot of vegetables so the steamer basket is wonderful. Very high quality item, we very much recommend this cooker!
Don't buy not worth it
Lid don't fit well and it is not good to fry food at all leaves black burns on the sides. U can only use this to cook soup kinds of food.
Versatile Stock Pot
“Tasty” is a very versatile stock pot/steamer. It can be used to boil spaghetti; cook up a pot of soup; fix a small pot roast with vegetables; and even steam some shrimp. The Only down-side is that it is a little small, at only 4 quarts.
Very well made product.
This steam pot works just like it says. Pros: uses less water to steam,very durable Cons: you need a pot holder to hold the handles. Over all I do recommend this to anyone who will listen to me.
Tasty 4 quart stainless steel multi pot with steam
This 4 quart multi pot with a removable steamer bask from Tasty is just awesome. It is a perfect size and it feels like a very nice useable weight. It is not too heavy where it would be difficult to lift and use, but it is definitely heavy enough to feel solid and substantial in your hands. The steamer basket will conveniently lift out or self store. The steaming feature is simple to use and lets you refresh buns that are getting stale, steam fresh vegetables, etc. or for additional uses in the kitchen. The lid is made of glass so you can check on your food while cooking without lifting the lid. I like the size and the weight for most of my uses while preparing our food. This is a very useful pot for easy food preparation and I highly recommend it!
Nice quality steamer
I am very happy with the Tasty 4 qt. Steamer basket pot. Nice quality and it heats evenly and quickly for a nice result. I wish it had come with directions but I found them online for how much water and time for most vegetables. I also used it for pasta without basket in and it worked well for this too.
