This sounds like a neat product. Wal mart is offering a free sample at:
I often place my veggies or potato or whatever in a ziplock baggie, it has always worked just fine for me. I probably will continue doing this same way. jamish
The new Ziplock "Steamer" bags are super and come in regular and large size. Microwaving times are printed on the bag to help guide you along. The bags have a special seam that allows pressure to escape but not the product.

I love this product. But I normally add an extra min to the cooking time for softer veggies.
