Hi I am Melissa from NorthlineExpress and I am here with our John Wright 3 Quart Cast Iron Filigree Steamer. This is an important accessory for anyone who uses a wood stove to heat your home on a regular basis. That is because the humidity in the air will become really low and it can dry out the air, you may notice dry scratchy skin, a sore scratchy throat, and your pets may feel this way as well. It can also be damaging to your wood furniture and wood trim and cause it to warp.
An easy way to eliminate all of these things is by simply setting the Filigree Steamer in place and letting it add that humidity back into the air. It does not require a lot of attention, in fact the Filigree Steamer has a 3 quart capacity, and so that means it hold more water so you do not have to fill it up quite as often. The intricate filigree design on top allows you to see the water level, so you do not have to remove the steamer from the stove to check the water level, and there is a circular area on top to allow you to fill it without having to remove it from the stove, because they are heavy and they can sometimes get too hot to where you would need to use something to remove it from the stove. So this Filigree Steamer is really a set it and forget it accessory, which is always nice when it comes to accessories for your wood stove.
The Filigree Steamer is constructed of cast iron, but the inside has a nice porcelain enamel finish which is going to help prevent rust. Also, if you are using this with hard water, I would recommend using distilled water in your steamer. It will just help to prevent or reduce any mineral build-up inside your steamer, keep it looking better for longer and make clean up easier.
Something really fun to do with your steamer is add fresh mint leaves or cinnamon sticks inside your steamer. If you feel like you are getting a cold, that fresh mint is going to freshen the air, similar to something like Vicks VapoRub, which you can also use in this steamer.
Steamers are a really nice multi-purpose accessory, and they are really important if you are using a wood stove on a regular basis.
