This Aluminum Chinese Steamer enables you to cook a large amount of food at one time or prepare several dishes at once, saving time and energy. Aluminum steamers conduct heat better then bamboo steamers, last longer and do not retain odors. Cook a different type of food on each layer.
This three layer Aluminum Stacked Steamer comes in a variety of sizes: 24cm (9 inches), 30cm (12 inches) and 40cm (16 inches). Choose the steamer according to the type of cooking you plan to do. For instance, for steaming a 1-1 1/2 pound whole fish (to serve 2-3 people Asian style) a 12" steamer would be a good size. Also we do not recommend using a wok for steaming if you have been using it to stir-fry, as it will cause the desirable black patina to wash away.
