Steaming food is one of the healthiest ways of cooking and is becoming increasingly popular around the world. It is also a common method of cooking in Chinese cuisine. Building on this the Office for Product Design has reinterpreted the classic Chinese steamer and pot for Chinese focused homeware brand JIA giving it a modern twist.
The ‘Ding Steamer’ set consists of a cooking pot with an accompanying cedar wood steamer basket. This steamer set differs from most in that it has a terracotta base, a material ideally suited to steam cooking as it absorbs and retains excess moisture, thus stopping the food from becoming soggy. The pot itself is made from glazed fireproof ceramic which is highly resilient and can be placed directly on top of a heat source or used separately for oven cooking.
The steamer set complement the other pieces in the series, the cast iron ‘Ding Casserole’ and accompanying bone china ‘Ding Bowls’.
