Anyone own a foodpod?

If you do how do you like it?

    Well, I don't have one and haven't used one, but unlike the others, I think it looks interesting. It's made of silicone, so I'm thinking it won't get hot to the touch and it should be flexible making it easy to fit into different sized pots. The single handle-thingy looks like it would make it easy to lift it out of a pot of boiling water. I particularly liked the pic showing it full of eggs to boil. Yes, I can keep scooping the eggs out with a slotted ladle, or pour the water from the pot carefully, but I am very klutsy and often crack the eggs. I think the pod looks neat!

      I believe my question was very specific. I didn't ask "should I buy a foodpod?". I asked "Has anyone used a foodpod?" and did he/she like it. I like the idea of a colander/steamer that takes up little space and that is why I am interested in it.

        Sorry, you're right that I didn't even try to answer your question. I just always feel compelled to talk people out of what I think are potentially bad decisions. It's a bad habit. If you have a need for one, go for it!

        But I will say this -- if you already have a colander/steamer, this will only save space if you're willing to throw out the colander you already have.

        What an incredibly stupid idea. A solution to a problem that doesn't exist. Sorry if I offend anyone who bought one, but as jeremyn says, why?

          I don't have one, but why would you want one? What does it do that a colander doesn't do?
