I bought the best thing in the world for $20 at Walmart, and this may be the first time I have bought anything cheap that actually works as intended.
Rival Double Stack Vegetable Steamer - it's cheap and a little thin. It does not have all of the bells and whistles that the more expensive models have. It works!!!! Most important for me.
This is what it looked like while it was cooking. Like I say, I didn't have the stacking seal on it, and it still cooked up great. This is using only one layer of cooking.
This may be the best $20 I have spent in a long time. This is especially the best time of year to find something like this with all of the fresh vegetables around. I do plan on cooking some meats in it, too. I am also wondering if tamales are an option.
