Steamer sets are often used in Asian cuisine. However, they make a practical and useful addition to any kitchen. Food is cooked in steamer sets by first boiling water in a pot and then letting the steam circulate around the basket to heat the food. It is a quick and healthy method of food preparation that works well with vegetables and seafood. Steamer sets generally consist of a bottom pot, stacks or baskets and a lid. Extra baskets or stacks can be added as desired. The 24" - 26" high steamer sets can usually hold a good amount of food allowing multiple servings to be cooked simultaneously. The 24" - 26" high steamer sets are often made from material such as aluminum, stainless steel and bamboo, making them not only functional, but also durable and attractive.
