"The handles spoil it"
Mrs Lorelei Hilson
29 December 2009
I was delighted when my husband bought this for me for a birthday present as covering a Christmas pudding with greasproof paper and string etc for cooking is such a faff. It took a while to work out the system for opening and closing the basin but it worked a treat. Unfortunately, I encountered a big problem with the basin when I tried putting it into my steamer as the handles protruded too far and it wouldn't fit in. I solved it by digging out my huge stock pot but it was rather like using a sledge hammer to crack a nut and such a shame it hadn't been thought through in the designing. I must say that the non-stickness of the basin worked a treat and the pudding turned out like a dream. Perhaps folding handles (or none) would have saved my disappointment.
A note from the team
The 1 litre pudding steamer will fit in to a 24cm casserole or stock pot.
