Steaming vegetablesI almost flipped the other night when I saw the advertisement for the new GLAD SimplyCooking Microwave Steaming Bags. Once again the push for helping out in “today’s busy world” turns into another landfill item and increased laziness in our incredibly wasteful society. Items like this drive me crazy!!!

On the GLAD website it actually says, ” No waiting for water to boil, no messy pots and pans to clean.” O.K., now how long does it actually take to boil a pot of broccoli and, PHEW, scrub that pot that was used to boil water? This whole process must take, well, almost as long as it takes to empty the contents from a plastic bag and walk it to the trash.

Come on now! This is just one more irresponsible product being marketed for the busy consumer that is completely unnecessary!

GLAD- shame on you and shame on anyone that buys this product!

    Yep, another one to stick in the hall of shame along with those disposible “wipes” you can buy for every product from moisturiser to kitchen cleaner.

    I totally agree! My stepmother, who taught me to cook a meal in under 30 minutes would put frozen veggies and a little bit or water in a little casserole dish, zap it and serve it all in the same container.
    How can people be so averse to washing a pot?
