electric kettle as steamer?

Does anyone have any experience using an electric kettle to steam food? I'm trying to think of how to use the little Rival hotpot in my office to cook fresh/frozen gyoza. Just butched a bowl into what fits the kettle enough that I think I can make it into a little steamer basket. Am I nuts? Will this work? Am I better off cooking them up in the morning and eating them cold or nuked later?

*the only other cooking option at my office is a microwave.
