The steaming basket is also called a perforated insert. The special perforation allows the steam from water or stock to circulate freely. This ensures that delicate foods such as fish or tender vegetables are cooked gently.
The cooking insert allows you to conveniently prepare an additional dish with stock or sauce. Because the insert doesn’t have holes, liquid can cook above the food in the cooker.
The inserts are each equipped with a tripod. This prevents the food from standing in the liquid needed to generate the steam.
