Had this several years - and really so easy to use and sturdy. Fits all my pots except smallest. Only thing to note is that the wee lifty knob is metal and gets hot - so grab tongs or a towel first. However sturdy, it cannot survive the impossible. I tend to wander off and have managed to boil pans dry. The basket survived years of such abuse until yesterday when I took it super hot out of a very baked dry pan, stuck it on a plastic chopping board and welded it there! Not unreasonably, one of the wee ball feet came of when I tried to unweld it. Such a loss to my kitchen that I am immediately buying a new one.
