Cool little gadget that works nicely to steam and cook vegetables, keeps breads moist and hot. Simple design that has lasted for fifty plus years.

Several years ago I would use this daily when my former partner worked at various times. It reheated foods with steam and unlike what a microwave does at times, it would not toughen or change the texture of the reheated food

The small pans that came with it look almost like Easy Bake or a kids play set.

I have two of them, one has never been used. Was thinking about selling them, but maybe now I'll hang on to at least one.

if you decide to get rid of that one. I already have one that I use as a daily driver, but this is so handy to have that I would love to have another for a spare. I have also seen this cooker with the Universal name on it on ebay but did not have the money to buy it. The Universal version had a white lid and did not have the signal light. It was made after the GE housewares division bought Landers, Frary & Clark in 1965. PATRICK COFFEY

Appliguy, I agree regarding this cooker being handy. Even for simple things such as reheating dinner rolls or other breads, just place a small amount of water in the base and the item is heated perfectly.

I also really like the way the cooker leaves looks...

I've never seen this appliance, but I'd like to go back to Woolworth's in 1968 and buy one.
