Purchasing a Crab Steamer - Baltimore

  • 2

Any suggestions on where to find a nice large crab steamer? All suggestions are welcome. Steaming up a couple dozen this weekend and don't want to use the 8 quart pasta pot/steamer. Thanks!

  1. Any large pot will do...but try either Home Depot or Lowes they sell those "turkey" fryers and those pots will work very well...I always use a canning steamer...just remember you will need to have some type of grate on the bottom to keep the crabs above the liquid.

      You might be able to find a large stockpot for a good price at Ollie's Bargain Outlet. There are several Ollie's in the Baltimore area.
