Cooking with a pressure cooker and steamer
Steaming vegetables retains more of their original vitamins and minerals than boiling does — making it a healthy and popular cooking method – but it’s also a terrific method for gently cooking fish, dumplings, rice and much more. Whether you use a bamboo steamer basket or a multi-level steamer set, steaming is gentle and healthy. Similarly, pressure cooking makes it easy to prepare delicious meals quickly, with pressure cookers sealing in pressure, enabling slow-cooked vegetable stews, broths or joints of meat to be cooked far faster than traditional cooking methods.
Our collection at The Essential Ingredient
Whether you’re looking for a single steamer basket, a fish poacher, a stainless steel steamer set or a high-quality pressure cooker, you’ll find the finest cookware at The Essential Ingredient.
Perfect for steaming dumplings, fish, meat, vegetables and more, a well-made bamboo steamer basket allows you to cook food without you needing to add any fats or oils.
However, if you’re looking for something dishwasher-friendly that fits tightly onto pots and saucepans, a stainless steel steamer set is a practical addition to your kitchen.
For those looking to speed up the cooking process and create flavourful, tender meals quickly, we stock high-quality stainless steel pressure cookers that can be used on all hob types, including induction cooktops.
