Odd things 2 find.. Yunnan steam pot

grant.cook | Dec 10, 2009 09:20 AM

Anyone seen one of these in the various Chinese highways and byways of Boston - its a covered clay pr porcelain pot with a center tube (sort of like an Angel-food cake pan or a smaller Scorpion bowl, for the Hong Kong fans out there) - its placed over boiling water and the steam comes up through the center tube and cooks the food inside. Its often called a yunnan steam pot. I can find them here and there online, but haven't seen them for sale in Boston. Thx..
