Helen’s Asian Kitchen Steaming Ring quickly converts any stockpot or Dutch oven into a compatible base for using bamboo steamers directly over the steaming pot. No more sacrificing the use of woks or stirfry pans while steaming foods.

Have the best of both worlds, stirfried and steamed foods at the same time, for healthier meals with less cooking time. A useful addition to cooking utensils and steaming tools that’s so easy to use and stores away flat in a kitchen cabinet. Simply set the Steaming Ring over a stockpot of boiling water. Place the 10-inch bamboo steamer on top and cook foods according to recipe. Do not allow pot to boil dry. Made from aluminum, Helen Chen’s Steaming Ring is lightweight, yet strong and durable.

Helen's Asian Kitchen Bamboo Steamers
Steaming food helps retain fresh textures and flavors, and preserves precious nutrients. Steamers are made from 100-percent natural bamboo, a fast-growing alternative to traditional materials for a more sustainable living.

- Perfect for cooking, reheating and serving your favorite dim sum

How steamers work:
A bamboo steamer is designed to sit over another pot containing boiling water. As the water boils, the steam enters the steamer through the open slats in the bottom and is contained in the steamer by the lid. The bamboo steamer absorbs any condensation, keeping water from dripping back onto the food. When heated, it forms a hot container and, with the cover in place, can keep food warm for up to half an hour. The bamboo steamer is also an attractive serving piece and may be brought right to the table. Foods that are steamed require little or no added oils or fats, and they retain vitamins and minerals and cook quickly and evenly.
Tips for steaming the Asian way:
When steaming dry foods such as breads and dim sum, line the bottom of the steamer tier with parchment paper or cabbage leaves to prevent sticking. 9.5" parchment rounds do the job easily. However, for foods that are seasoned such as seafood, meats and tofu, steam them in a heat-proof shallow dish (such as a Pyrex pie plate) to catch the flavorful and nutritious juices. The dish should be about 1 inch smaller than the diameter of the steamer and the food should not touch the inside of the lid to allow steam to circulate freely around the food for even cooking. The added benefit of using a dish is that the bamboo steamer stays clean. Use specially designed Plate Retriever Tongs for added safety.
Caring for Your Bamboo Steamer:
Before using for the first time, rinse the bamboo steamer and lid with cold water. After each use, wash steamer with hot water and a brush, if necessary. Do not use soaps or detergents — bamboo may absorb fragrance and impart unwanted flavors to foods. Allow steamer to thoroughly air dry before storing in a well-ventilated place.

I was skeptical, but I'm sold now that I've used it. I'm surprised the companies that sell the steamers haven't started packaging these rings with the steamers. They should!
