JIA 4-Piece Steamer/Rice Cooker Set


JIA's steamer set with the additional ceramic rice cooker lid is a steamer and rice cooker in one. Most steamers are either too large, too cheaply made, or, in the case of the old-fashioned metal steamer inserts, too awkward to use. I bought this steamer set a year ago and have fallen in love with it. The pot is a glazed fireproof ceramic that can sit directly on a burner. The steamer basket is made from cedar, and the sieve base is made from terra cotta to absorb excess moisture. You can use this steamer set in the oven or microwave as well.

How to Cook Rice:
It is recommended to soak rice for 30 minutes prior to cooking to help retain moisture and speed cooking time. Recommended proportions are 1:1 cups of rice and water. Heat on high for 5 to 8 minutes or until it begins to steam, then change to low heat. Cook for another 5 minutes or until steam begins to lessen. Be careful not to overcook. Let sit for 10 to 15 minutes to allow rice to become fluffy.
