If you have visited your city’s Chinatown, or if you have ever eaten traditional dumplings, you may have seen them being prepared using bamboo steamers. Naturally-made, such steamers are light, yet excellent to prepare foods that would otherwise require other kinds of steaming devices that may not be as practical or affordable for some. Of course, there are many more advantages to using a bamboo steamer, and this article will tell you just what these benefits are. Ultimately, the bamboo steamer is the next great tool you need in your kitchen arsenal!
1. Bamboo Steamers Are the Healthy Choice
Did you know that bamboo is a naturally antibacterial and thus hygienic material to use? Indeed, and we’ve discussed it in more detail in this article. In fact, bamboo steamers allow the food that you cook with to retain more of their vital nutrients. Instead of boiling your vegetables which wash away key nutrients, using steam is a gentler alternative. If you are also looking for a way to make your meals healthier, using a bamboo steamer can be quite helpful as the fat found in certain cuts of meat or fish can melt off and some of the oil can drip down, making your meal a healthier version.
2. Bamboo Steamers Are Inexpensive
Forget about purchasing that expensive steamer or the instantpot you’ve been thinking about, instead, the bamboo steamer is much less expensive and provides a similar cooking time. For example, our bamboo steamer is just 25.99 US Dollars. Our bamboo steamers are made of 100% natural bamboo; therefore, you reap all the benefits it has to offer without sacrificing an arm and a leg for quality.
3. Bamboo Products Are More Eco-Friendly
Bamboo is the world’s fastest-growing plant. Additionally, as it provides its ecosystem and biodiversity with a great source of food while also transforming over 30% more CO2 into oxygen, investing in bamboo products is a simple way of reducing your ecological footprint as you use renewable materials that do not take hundreds of years to break down, such as plastic-containing materials, and meanwhile also support a sustainable business. Using a bamboo steamer rather than an electrical one also means that you considerably reduce your usage of energy.
4. Bamboo Steamers Look Fantastic
Have you ever watched a YouTube video outlining one’s meals throughout the day and wondered how people make their meals look so attractive? If so, you may have noticed that bamboo steamers are a great way of making a simple dinner look rather upscale. While being able to use one to create authentic foods, you can also serve the food directly from this steamer, making your dish go from a simple Wednesday-night dinner to one with the “wow” factor.
5. Food Quality Is Improved
Indeed, the quality of your food will improve as you use bamboo steamers. Rather than leaving your food soggy, the gentle steaming process keeps your food looking fresh. Unlike other steamers, condensation does not occur as bamboo is porous and therefore absorbs water. Thus, the condensation does not fall back onto the food but it rather dissipates through the steamer itself.
