Product Description Helen's Asian Kitchen created this innovative 11inch Steaming Ring to allow a 10-inch bamboo steamer to be used directly on an uncovered saucepan, stock pot or Dutch oven instead of in a wok. Use with Helen's Asian Kitchen 10-inch Bamboo Steamer (sold separately). Using your Steaming Ring on a saucepan, stock pot or Dutch oven won t damage your well-seasoned or nonstick wok by boiling water in it, and there s a large capacity for water so the straight sided stock pot takes up less space on your stove. This frees up your wok or stir fry pan for cooking so you can stir-fry and steam at the same time. The steaming ring is designed to sit on top of an uncovered saucepan or stockpot. The bamboo steamer is then placed securely on the ring and now you can conveniently steam over any large pot. It not only makes the bamboo steamer simpler and easier to use, but it also helps keep the steamer cleaner and avoids scorching from the hot sides of a wok.
