This post was inspired by Walt’s Kitchen Collection at WCS, another american in france, and by the fact that I just bought this item for my daughter at the market last Sunday and found it an interesting photographing subject, besides being a useful device in the kitchen.
Here, the contraption is open.
But when it’s closed, it’s rather small and can sit inside one of your pots, waiting till you use it next.
This steamer is made of aluminum, but I’ve see some plastic ones.
The neat thing about steamers is that they adjust to any pot size you’ve got, and it’s not as expensive as buying one of those fancy steamers that take a lot of space on your kitchen counter or in the dishwasher.
And they do just the same thing!
An extra reason for getting into indoors photography this morning (as if I needed one 😉 )
As I have mentioned before, I am not too fond of cooking, but buying ready-made stuff (and eating too much of it) has made me put on a lot of weight. I wouldn’t mind all that much if it didn’t make me huff and puff when I go on my walks around Paris.
So I have decided that summer was a good time to go back to cooking a bit, and that to get some motivation, I’ll try to make it more pleasant by taking photographs. 😉
