I am looking at getting something to steam vegetables. What equipment do you recommend for steaming?

— Judith Lysaker


very simple and just colander and a pan that it'll fit into works just fine on the yeah, probably already own it category but in terms of steaming I use a bamboo steamer, you know a joist Chen brand I believe bamboo steamers and they come in small multiple sizes. They come in multiple levels so you can have dumplings in asparagus or something. Whatever. The bamboo steamers I like because they work but they've also worked for I don't know how many thousands of here people have been doing this with those and just any equipment that sticks around that long. Is going to be the best to me. It's sort of build a better mousetrap kind of thing. It's like yeah. Well then the bamboo steamers. Kind of Perfect there you go and they're made to fit easily over various sized cookware that you already have. Oh, yeah, and they're like $12. So, there you go.
