Steamer Basket

My favorite items are simple, beautiful, and functional…all of which apply to this basket.

“When we found this steamer basket we each thought, wow, cool basket, what is it for and then each of us came up with a variety of things to do with it: holding papers, fruit basket, beautiful object for the shelf, steaming food etc. Technically it is designed for steaming food by placing it in a pot with a small amount of water underneath, just as one would with any steamer. It is also nice for serving tempura with a small white paper between the basket and the tempura. We can think of a 100 ways to use this basket and are certain you will too. At the end of the day it is a beautiful object that takes on many applications.”

Hola Ola No 1

This looks like such a handy thing to put all sorts of food stuffs in.

A pre-molded soft silicone pot, 2″ wide and 3.5″ high (50 x 87 mm) that you squeeze, it opens, you fill it, you release the pressure, it closes. You need it? Squeeze it, it opens, a little shake and it pours, release it and it closes again. So smart.
