Keep foods and beverages fresh in the refrigerator, prevent splatters in the microwave, and steam veggies -- all with the silicone Piggy Steamer. Made of durable silicone, the steamer cover is safe for stovetop use, or in the refrigerator, freezer, or microwave.
Made in Japan, the FDA approved silicone Piggy Steamer (otoshibuta) is every steamer's dream and sure to get a chuckle. The pig-faced lid "Otoshibuta" is a play on words in Japanese: Otoshi means "drop," and Buta means either "lid" or "pig".
Drop the Piggy Steamer on top of something you are poaching or pan frying to steam food while keeping it from curling or moving around. The pig's nose allows steam to escape and also helps you maneuver the lid with a pair of chop sticks.
As a food cover: Bring the Piggy Steamer to your next picnic or barbecue to cover bowls and plates, keeping food warm and protected. Piggy Steamer lid seals tightly to glass, melamine, and steel containers.
As a jar opener: The flexible silicone also works great as a grip for opening sticky jar lids. You?ll have fun watching steam come out of piggy?s nose as your food cooks to perfection.
