Norpro Asparagus Stainless Steel Cooker, $20 

We hadn’t even realized that there was any such thing as a steamer built solely for asparagus, but for those who are really serious about this versatile culinary vegetable, and its role as a healthful spring staple, you might want to consider dropping a Jackson on this device. This 3-quart stainless steel steamer comes complete with a spear-friendly rack and a vented lid made of tempered glass. It can also prepare seafood and sauces when fresh asparagus isn’t available.
