I have one of these and found it can do “double-duty” as a vegetable steamer insert lol. I simply place a large-fist sized bunch of raw, washed broccoli with its stem cut short directly onto and into this Vargo titanium travel coffee filter and retract the 3 legs to their most compact position (for smaller pots, but you may need to extend the legs for larger pots to achieve a broader and thus more stable stance).
Then, place the entire assembly down into a cook-pot, add a small amount of water for steaming and cover with a lid. In my case, I used a Solo Stove 1800mL pot on my stovetop at home and it worked perfectly, although I would expect the same results in the great outdoors while cooking over a portable camp stove or even a ground fire, if that’s your preferred cooking method.
In conclusion, this is a great piece of kit. It’s strong, well-made, highly functional, versatile and capable of serving many needs for a lifetime of use.
Oh, it makes great coffee, too!
Cleanup is a breeze, as well (dump used grounds and rinse filter to reuse). 🤷🏼♂️
Good luck everyone! 😃
