Make the most of your bamboo steamer

September 26, 2007 (Last Updated: January 11, 2019)

• Bamboo steamers are designed to fit into a wok, a frying pan or onto a pot.
• They are perfectly suited to steaming vegetables, Asian-style dishes, fish, chicken, vegetables and dumplings.
• Some bamboo steamers are deep enough to hold individual pudding bowls.
• To prevent food from sticking to the bamboo, line the steamer with baking paper.
• When using your steamer for the first time, soak it in cold water for about an hour. Place the bamboo steamer over boiling water and cover with the lid for about 10 minutes.
