One of the features that makes the our Steam Juicer so convenient to use is its glass lid. Having a lid you can see though allows you to see the produce being steamed without interrupting the progress. With other Steam Juicers you have to lift the lid to see what's going on, and there goes all you steam rolling out into the kitchen.
The lid is made of heavy-tempered glass, so breakage is not inevitable like it is with regular glass, and it has a nice stainless-steel ridge around the edge, so chipping is next to impossible. The stainless-steel handle is solid too and adds a nice touch.
I was asked once, what good is a glass lid if it's steamed up all the time? You can see nothin' anyway. That's actually not true. Yes, the lid will steam up when it is first put on the Steam Juicer, but once the glass's temperature equalizes with the steam, you can see just fine. The only thing obstructing your view is drops of water hanging from inside the lid.
Now's a great time to purchase yours--right before the heavy fruit season arrives. And, it's also one of the nicer wine making gifts you can buy for anyone who's into making fruit wines.
