Steamed Dishes Don't Lose Their Nutrients

Boiling may remove the extra bitterness of vegetables, but the nutrients and minerals tend to dissolve into the water. During the steaming process, the interior of bamboo steamer is filled with water vapor, therefore keeping the food moist and preventing it from getting tough texture. Furthermore, the fiber is softened by heat and will be easily digested.

Steaming Plate: A Convenient Addition to Bamboo Steamers

Bamboo steamer can be used together with pot at your kitchen. If the rim of the pot is 1-2cm smaller than the diameter of bamboo steamer, you can use it as it is. However, if the pot is too big, too small, or the same size as the steamer, it will be difficult to use and sometimes will leave a burning mark (if the pot size is the same as steamer).

Steaming Plank

Steam plate will prevent burning marks on bamboo steamer.

Burnt Steamer

Bamboo steamer needs high heat to produce a lot of steam. Therefore, the bottom side may have a burn mark if the steamer sticks out from the pan. If you have a steam plate, there's no need to worry about this problem.

Choosing The Right Pot For Bamboo Steamer

When using bamboo steamer with a pot that you already have in your home, make sure that the size and type fit perfectly. We recommend pots that can contain a lot of water. If the diameter of bamboo steamer is too big, the steam will leak, and it will not cook well. If the bamboo steamer is too small, it might fall into the pot.
