Those stocking a commercial kitchen have different needs than those making selections for the home. Considerations such as work space exploitation, streamlined service processes, budgets and economical replenishment weigh far more heavily on professionals in the food service industry. For this reason, bamboo steamers without covers are offered to cooks needing to restock or add to their existing supplies in the most functional and economical way possible. Bamboo steamers without covers are available in several sizes to fit existing steamer sets, allowing extra tiers to be added to prepare larger meals on a single element. The addition of extra tiers makes the most of table space by allowing several dishes to be served on interlocking baskets. The most budget-friendly way to replace cookware is by choosing separates that work with existing sets. Lids with matching diameters can be selected separately. Handcrafted bamboo steamers are durable and constructed using sturdy white bamboo, which cooks food evenly. It retains food's natural texture by trapping steam between the lid and boiler. The circulation of moist heat through woven slots cooks food while natural bamboo absorbs excess water that would otherwise drip onto food and cause sogginess. Lining baskets with leaves prevents wood from absorbing strong flavors that would taint other dishes.
