A Modern Interpretation of the Traditional Steamer
Steaming food has been an integral part of Chinese cooking for hundreds of years. Office for Product Design have reinterpreted the classic Chinese steamer giving it a modern functional twist.
The fireproof ceramic bowl is more stable and less susceptible to changes in temperature than regular stoneware, making it less likely to crack or break during cooking. It can be used in conjunction with gas stove, oven, and microwave cooking. Terra cotta is featured for its efficient liquid absorbing characteristics. Using to replace the traditional bamboo basket base prevents the food from absorbing too much moisture during steaming.
