Rated 5 out of 5 by SmokyMtRain this adds a bit more comfort to our home
I bought this steamer so we could add a bit of moisture to the dry atmosphere inside our home during the cold winter months. After reading the data that came with the steamer I knew I had to change things a bit to make this work because the instructions said it could only work on a pellet or wood stove. Okay, we are all electric, so I placed a difuser plate on the electric element and set the steamer on that (now it's just like a wood stove) and I use botted water, not tap water which causes white lime build up and then I added my mulling spices to the water and set the stove for low heat. WOW, the aroma throughout the house is so nice. When the water level in the steamer drops down below half way, I turn it off to cool down and add more water. I make my own mulling spices from whole - cinnamon sticks, allspice, cardamon, cloves, dried orange and lemon peels ... so nice.
Thank you LL Bean.

Rated 3 out of 5 by heyladysays cute, but...
as I stated in the title, it is cute, but small. the dimensions given in the description do not mention the length INCLUDES the two handles. so, what was supposed to be a 10 & 1/2 inch steamer, is in reality, barely 8 & 1/2 inches. there haven't been any issues as yet with the paint flaking, as I've read in some reviews. it is, as I said cute, it functions as it is supposed to. I have to refill it numerous times a day, which is a pain. the hubby likes it, otherwise it would have been returned. Unfortunately, the next size up is also 40 dollars more!!! crazy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Playcat1 Decorative and very functional
Well made and easy to refill. Cover does not have to be removed to refill. Capacity works well on my stove. Larger stoves should use the larger model.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OutdoorLadyKae LLBean backs their product!
My husband purchased a green steamer about four years ago. Last winter we noticed lines of a white powder leaching on the outside. LLB replaced it with no questions asked (we did pay the difference between old and recent cost). Minerals will build up on the inside but soaking with white vinegar makes cleaning a breeze--it literally wipes clean. We were just disappointed as to why these invisible scratch-like lines showed up.
Still love it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by purplecrone develops pit marks
I have owned 2 of these. The first was the unpainted and after the 4th winter of use, it developed white streaks. I replaced it with one of the enamel ones thinking it might not do that. It didn't do that, but it developed pit marks on the outside surface the first winter used. I burn the wood stove daily through the winter. Maybe these will last longer for people with lower wood stove use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by QueenBee57 Great Product...!!!
I ordered the smaller size in red and it's wonderful...Very attractive sitting on top of my stove......I'm leaving it out all the time......It's a terrific steamer and really helps humidify the air......

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lynnmct Disapointed on this purchase
I purchased a large lattice top wood stove steamer about 3 to 4 years ago. About 2 years ago I noticed the enamel was starting to flake off, last year it was so bad that every time I removed ash's from the stove I had to vacuum up the paint chips from the steamer as well. Right now not very nice to look at and I guess we will replace eventually but I have to say my husband and I are very disappointed in the purchase. And for the record we are big fans of LL Bean. They have always had the best quality products and in all the years of shopping with them this is the first item that did not stand up to what we have come to expect from an LL Bean product. I would not recommend this product,

Rated 3 out of 5 by Oona Cast Iron, but NOT made in the USA?
This steamer is as lovely as advertised; my only complaint is that it is not made in the USA. I wish I had realized this before I ordered it. We purchased the large in matte black...I wouldn't want to have it any smaller.
