The method of steaming food was invented during the Han Dynasty thousands of years ago. Legend has it that General Han Xin made cooking utensils from bamboo and wood to cook food with steam. Through history, steaming has evolved to be one of the most iconic and essential cooking techniques in the Chinese culinary lexicon. The steamer basket replaces the traditional bamboo base with terracotta. This natural material has efficient liquid absorbing characteristics, meaning it can absorb any excess moisture generated during steaming, ensuring that the food is perfectly moist. The steamer pot and lid are made from fireproof ceramic, which has excellent heat resistance compared to regular stoneware, making it less likely to crack at higher temperatures. The JIA steamer pot can be used on open flame gas stoves and in both conventional and microwave ovens. Made from: Fireproof ceramic, Cedar wood, Terra Cotta. Diameter - 24 centimeters. It is recommended before first use to fill pot with water and let sit overnight, then cook one cup of rice in 80 percent volume of water until it becomes a porridge. When in use, heat on low-medium heat to avoid discoloration. Rinse immediately after rich-colored foods to avoid stains.

Pros: Beautiful modern design. One of coolest looking steamer. Dual use (can cook soups, stew on bottom part and steam food at same time). Handmade at a reasonable price so they claim.
Cons: Smell from wood used is strong. It takes a while for smell to minimize. It STAINS incredibly fast. Anything other than light colored soups (chicken, potato, pasta soups, etc) will stain! Yes, as another reviewer said, the stains are impossible to get out. All my Le Crueset have light inner colored enamel but I am able to easily clean those. For the cost, I would stick to regular bamboo steamer.

from Amazon. Since I have a number of clay pots of the same size I use the terra-cotta insert with those as well as with the
ceramic steamer. I believe that clay/terra-cotta is a healthier material for cooking, although I have and use some stainless.
This kind of steamer insert is the first of its kind that I have found. The ceramic steamer is an excellent size for two or more.
After steaming fish or chicken or vegetables I occasionally put the insert with the contents on a pottery plate and use it as
a rustic serving dish, with the ceramic pot or clay pot which might hold sauce/rice/beans/cooked salsa. I would buy right now a
an insert for the smaller model if it were available.
If I were planning to open a cafe or restaurant I would buy 2 or 3 dozen of this product - for it unique profile, it's inherent
usability - and the fun it would be to cook and present various cuisines in this way.
