Use this silicon piggy for steaming food, covering bowls, covering leftovers in the fridge and opening stubborn jars
Dishwasher and microwave safe
Soft, yet durable silicone material is easy to clean
Diameter: 8.5 inches (21.5cm)
The multipurpose, silicone Piggy Steamer lid can be used to help ingredients in a pot cook more evenly and prevent splatter in the microwave. It's pretty fun to watch the steam rise out from its snout. It can even be used as a grip to open jars.

Dissatisfied. I thought this was a Marna product as were the white ones I bought ( also $17). This is thinner. There are no holes in nostrils. No writing on packaging except Made in China. There is no listing of what it is made of on the packaging, no instruction on care & use. Not stamped as food safe. I will not use anything on my food in microwave unless I know it is safe, so I won't be using this item. Feel I've wasted my money.
I went to Japan in Dec. and bought a steamer made out of the same material. I love both of them. I wish they sold the steaming dishes too. I usually used wax paper sheet in the microwave to heat up food but it didn't always stay on the food. This does and it warms the food up fast and the clean up is easy too... I bought two and will buy more... I also bought the one for warming up stuff in a cup.
I was looking to purchase an otoshibuta because I wanted to cook nikujaga. There's only so many times you can hear an unfamiliar dish mentioned before you want to try it for yourself and I reached my breaking point. I looked at a few recipes, all of which called for use of an otoshibuta, or "drop lid" to sit on top of the food as it simmers. There were usually instructions that one could be substituted with a lid fashioned from foil or parchment paper, but I decided to check Amazon. I was immediately drawn to the design of this, as I am comfortable using silicone cookware, and the pig design is a play on words, as "buta" is also Japanese for pig.
Long story short, my otoshibuta worked wonderfully, and was easy to handwash. Based on the material it should be dishwasher safe, but I was already handwashing pots and pans.
