Named for their premium 2-layer non-stick coating, Excalibur pans feature secure riveted handles made of stay-cool Bakelite. Perfect for the rapid heating conditions of searing and stir-frying, they are safe for use on gas, electric, and induction stovetops. This Excalibur stir-fry pan is a substantial cooking tool, suited to rapid cooking of meats, seafoods, and veggies. It features a flat bottom, steep sides, and a handle ring for hanging. Measuring 12 inches in diameter, it should be washed by hand for best results. A 14-inch version is also available. --Emily Bedard[/ReviewAZON] [...more]

Helen Chen’s Asian Kitchen 10-Inch Bamboo Steamer

Helen Chen’s Asian Kitchen 10-Inch Bamboo Steamer

[ReviewAZON asin="B000OFNL8Y"]An authentic tool for steaming vegetables and meats or serving dim sum at the table, this steamer from Helen Chen's Asian Kitchen line is crafted from tightly woven bamboo. In addition to being a sustainable material, bamboo is an effective steaming material because it traps steam, absorbs condensation, and retains heat. Here, the 100 percent natural bamboo slats are hand-woven into a layered cylindrical basket with a tightly constructed lid and secured with bamboo pegs. Tidy and attractive, the unit rests over a wok or, with a steaming ring, on a pot of boiling water to cook without fat or cumbersome equipment. Measuring 10 inches in diameter, the steamer is handcrafted, and detergent-free washing by hand is recommended. An instruction booklet with recipes is included. --Emily Bedard[/ReviewAZON] [...more]
