     About GLAD(R) SimplyCooking(TM) Microwave Steaming Bags
     Made with a proprietary technology that includes heat-resistant
 materials, GLAD(R) SimplyCooking(TM) Microwave Steaming Bags have a
 stand-up functionality that not only makes them easier to fill, season and
 serve, but allows for cooking with liquid seasonings or sauces. A venting
 mechanism regulates the steam level to consistently steam fresh or frozen
 vegetables in minutes, leaving them colorful, tender and more flavorful
 than boiling. Vegetables turn out crisp, yet tender, and are ready in
 minutes without pots and pans. Steamed vegetables, like those made in
 GLAD(R) SimplyCooking(TM) Microwave Steaming Bags, retain more nutrients,
 natural flavors, and colors than vegetables that are boiled.
     GLAD(R) SimplyCooking(TM) Microwave Steaming Bags are available at
 grocery and mass merchandise stores nationwide in 10-count packages at a
 suggested retail price of $2.99. For more information, including suggested
