Category: Tool
Definition: A piece of equipment, similar to a bain-marie, in which delicate food such as chocolate or custard is gently heated in a smaller pot that fits tightly into a larger pot that contains water that is used to create the steam that conducts the heat. Unlike a bain-marie, the smaller pot rests above the water, and is not immersed in it
