- NOTE: these buns are cooked in bamboo steamers that are available in Chinese and specialty gourmet cookware stores. The round steamers can be pruchased in various sizes separately or possibly in sets of two of three tiers. For cooking, the covered steamer(s) is (are) placed over boiling water in a wok or possibly large saucepan. The above is quoted directly from a section connected to the recipe. This is my own note. I don't like the flavor which a bamboo steamer imparts to recipes; therefore, I bought an aluminum Chinese steamer.
