Other uses for an asparagus pot

I hope there are some! Please help me figure out what else can I use it for?
I hate buying such specialty equipment, but an All-clad pot was sitting at a Marshall's store ($25) and I just had to get it....Now I feel guilty....

      1. Geez, at $25 for an All-Clad pot, just make a lot of asparagus and be guilt-free!

          I know it was a steal....and it is soooooo pretty!!!! I think corn on the cob sounds like the next best thing.
          Thanks everybody!

        2. You can also use it for small scale canning. My best-friend's mother cans her cucumbers into pickles as they ripen in her garden; she uses an asparagus pot to process them one quart jar at a time. This is a particularly useful tip for those of us with small spaces. An asparagus pot is far easier to store than a giant canner!
