“So far, so good.”

Just received this yesterday and washed it, then noted instructions said to not immerse in water - I had made sure to not let any water near the connector in the handle, but it says to just "wipe clean with a wet towel". Put water in it, plugged it in, set to 600 and water was at full boil in less than 5 minutes, so no harm done. I plan to try the egg steamer rack today, and will also use a silicone steamer basket for veggies. I have no doubt this thing will be just fine for my needs. Note that the lavender color, under regular kitchen lights, looks so pale it's almost white. Under low lights, you can see the pale lavender color.
