Never in my life have i eaten vegetables because I am lazy

Then one day in the 99p shop I saw this thing thought oh i'll give it a try it was a cheap plastic tub with another perfarated tub inside and a lid. The idea is u put 2cm of water in the bottom drop in the perferated tub fill with veg lid on microwave 4 minutes and hey presto veg cooked No hobs no pans no messing around.

This has revolutionised my life with the help of cheap brocolli and carrots in tescos and a few hanging around for reduction activities later i take ur 5 a day and match u 10! eat that

I went into pound land and they had 2 in there so i got them and sometimes feed the cats milk out of the lids..

I can not on there sites find them anywhere and its really bugging me because they are excellent i can have a whole brocolli some carrots and potatoes in 10 minutes with no effort thats probably healthier than the effort way

Im posting this just in case there are others who are as i was to lazy to cook something that ultimately is not as appealing as a ham sandwich...

All i can find is an ebayer seller selling them for 6 quid but there is a pic
here:

I would pay 6 quid in hindsight but they must cost 10 pence to knock up so get yourself down to poundland or the 99p store to see if they have any...

The tubs ive posted are just microwavable dishes which may come in handy they look ok and for a quid is a good deal...

I just thought i would share my story...

as for the meat one sandwich toaster size lean green milling machine and some quality chiken and thats it - healthy living in under 10 minutes...

Sorry i cant find these anywhere else online other than ebay for 6 quid but if u can find any in poundland anyone please post

TLDR.
Bought mine from Poundland a while back and B&M sometimes bothers to stock these, too. £1 is the normal price for the two. The red lock on the top breaks easily.
You lost me at vegetables.
do these work in the microwave gizmo?
So it's a microwave steaming system? Sounds handy! Xxx
Just will say they easily stain when heating up foods like baked beans.
That's an interesting post - I feel like I'm starting to get to know you! Hot for effort alone!

Sounds like a micro steamer, I have a nice red Sistema one which cost about £7, or you can pick up a round cream one in Morrisons for about £4. £1 is a great price if the size suits you and they work
thanks for posting
revolutionised my life !!!
Will this not destroy the nutrients in the veg since its not only the steam that is cooking them, but also the microwaves, thus beating the purpose? I'm no nutritionist, but would love to hear from others who know better than me.
