Preparing perfectly cooked asparagus can be a tricky task because the bottoms always take Longer to cook than the tender tips. This tall, narrow asparagus pot from Cuisinox Elite solves the problem. It has a steaming basket that holds the stalks upright, allowing the bottoms to boil while the tips steam. A handle on the basket makes it accessible for removal. Perforations in the basket allow for easy draining. The Tempered glass lid with cast Stainless Steel handles makes this pot a neat addition to the Cuisinox Elite collection.
