Product Description

Product Description

The Pure Oriental, traditional bamboo steamer is ideal for cooking vegetables, fish, rice, cous cous and dim sim. The steamer is a healthy way of cooking vegetables and fish as it helps to preserve vitamins, minerals, flavours and colours of food.
For a true authentic feel the bamboo steamer is made from natural, woven bamboo and comes complete with a matching removable lid. It also has two tiers to cook different foods. The steamer is easy and simple to use, just add water into a saucepan, wok or stockpot and bring to the boil. Line the steamer slats with cabbage leaves or parchment paper to prevent food sticking to the bamboo and to keep the steamer clean. Then, just stand the steamer in water to steam the food. The steamer comes with an inspirational oriental recipe to get you started.

Pure Oriental from Kitchen Craft includes a range of items that capture the essence of authentic oriental cuisine.

    2.0 out of 5 stars its not old school - but none are today 6 Oct 2012
    By notino
    Verified Purchase
    wanted to see if these were more solid than those now being sold at my usual UK chinese food / utensil cash-and-carry. sadly, they are just the same flimsy design.

    while my old school 20cm bamboo steamers are 6mm thick on the rim, these ones are only 1mm thick on the rim. inevitably this makes them not as long-lived.

    it also means you can't balance them as safely on the rim of a deep 20cm pan. for safety, these ones you will need to stand in the water inside the pan. with only 25mm clearance between the bottom rim of the steamer and the slats, the maximum water height to provide the steam is 25mm, probably less on rolling boil, if you want to use the lower ring to steam rather than just as a support for the higher ring. that's not much if you're used to using the water to boil something else at the same time.

    in summary, its ok for what it is - but what it is, is a pale shadow of the more solid and versatile product it would have been a few years back. if anyone knows where they still sell 20cm bamboo steamers with 6mm thick rims, let me know !

    Having purchased a series of stainless steel and microwave steamers, I thought that I would try the more traditional bamboo steamer. I certainly appreciate the simplistic design and ease of use. These are practice, easy to use and can be used for a variety of dishes

    5.0 out of 5 stars A quality product for the price 5 Mar 2013
    By Andrew
    Verified Purchase
    I liked this steamer a great deal when I got it, It's traditionally made and well built with 2 tiers and lid all fitting well together. I did run it under warm water for a little while to remove any dust and loose bits before using it, but it did exactly what I wanted it to. It works well and the food steams great as long as you follow the instructions and make sure the water doesn't boil away! I'm well pleased with the delivery timing and it was in a box that didn't let it rattle around in transit. If you like your food to taste well and also enjoy authentic cooking, then you'll enjoy cooking with this item.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Very good buy 20 Feb 2013
    Verified Purchase
    This fits our wok perfectly and is good for two people. It looked much better when it arrived than it does in the pictures. Its slightly flimsy and has now started to break around the edges. But it serves us well and for the price, we are glad that it lasted this long.

    1.0 out of 5 stars not good 27 Oct 2012
    By Sorlen
    Verified Purchase
    Very bad, the steamer broken on me while i was putting the food in it and the guest were waiting for the food and it was very embarrassing so i had to go to Asian shops and found it really cheap, around 3 pound and very good quality. if you still want to buy it don't put lot of food inside it or it will break since its not good quality.

    This 8" steamer is two-tiered and quite small. I haven't returned it as sometimes my husband is away on business and it provides me with a quick meal. It would be perfect for a single person or a couple. I have cooked wontons in my steamer and they came out perfect. I have rated this steamer as a 4 star, only because of the size. However, I will now be looking around for a single tier 14" to fit in my wok!

    3.0 out of 5 stars too big to fit in my saucepans / pans
    Cannot use it as planned, as it is too large to fit my current saucepans / frying pans / wok. May have to buy alternative.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Not well made at all :(
    oh dear.. I am surprised how badly this was made. the top lid was bent inwards rather than outwards, it then came loose and I managed to fit it properly..but it won't last long. Read more

    I had a really good bamboo steamer that stood the test of time. I doubt this one is going to get used more than a couple of times. Used it once and it pretty much fell apart. Read more

    5.0 out of 5 stars Nice dim sum steamer
    The quality/price ratio is great, I'm glad I chose this item among all the rest. The size is also perfect to make a lot of dim sum together. I strongly recommend it.
