Thompson, you'll be filling it to near the top, giving it a lot of weight. A friend taught me a trick about monitoring the water level. Get a handful of clear marbles and keep them with the pot. When you use it put the marbles in the bottom and you'll hear them rattling when it's steaming and there is enough water. If the rattle starts to diminish, check and add water. If you're steaming something for 40 minutes to an hour, you'll have plenty of water, but if you add to the top and it goes longer, you'll need to know about the water level (and as it gets lower it evaporates faster.)

Do you have a way to post a photo of it, or a link to the sale? I'd love to see what you found!

Charmion, I read that as long as the silver doesn't touch any other metal it can go in the dishwasher. I have a system so I always put the silicone scrapers in the next to the corner slot of the flatware container in the dishwasher, so the silver goes in the corner that is protected by a non-metal. So far, so good. But this is plate that isn't worth a king's fortune. It does keep the tarnish away.
