How do you use all clad asparagus steamer?
- Prepare your asparagus by peeling any thick stalks using a vegetable peeler.

- Place your asparagus into the basket, put the basket into the asparagus pot and cover.
- Allow your asparagus to steam to your desired doneness.
Subsequently, one may also ask, how do you use an asparagus steamer?
To use, you fill the pot about 1/3 to 1/2 full with water. You bring the water to a boil, and stand your prepared asparagus in it upright, tip ends up. This ensures that the tougher ends of the stalks are in water, where they get boiled, and the more tender tips are out of the water, where they just get steamed.
One may also ask, how do you cook asparagus standing up? Heat 2 inches of water to boiling in a deep saucepan or stockpot. Place the bundle upright in the water. Cover; reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until tender, about 5-7 minutes.
Secondly, how do you steam asparagus asparagus?
Cut the asparagus to fit into your steamer basket. Cover and steam until the asparagus are bright green and tender, but still somewhat crisp, about 6 to 8 minutes for thick asparagus and 3 to 5 minutes for thin asparagus. Remove from the steamer and season with salt and pepper.
How do you know when asparagus is done cooking?
Check asparagus and turn as needed to make sure the stalks cook evenly and don't burn. Continue cooking 5 minutes longer, or until asparagus is tender but still crisp and bright green.
