Double Boiler

information

A type of cooking vessel that includes two separate pots. A lower pot holds water that is heated. Food is placed in an upper pot, which is then placed into the lower pot of hot water. This allows heat sensitive foods to reach a required temperature for cooking, but will not allow the food to burn. Foods such as custards, puddings, sauces, and chocolate are often prepared in a double boiler.
