Another trusty old war-horse, the Multi server has been around for many years, and is especially beloved by my Indian customers. It consists of a sturdy base bowl, a colander inside, and a lid. It measures 24 x 24 x 15.2 cm
The Multiserver has a white base and colander, and a red cover. Photos also show a different colour for information only.
Use it for steaming rice, pasta and vegetables, poaching fish, defrosting meat, melting chocolate, poaching eggs, as an ice bucket, for steaming hot flannels, even a portable fridge if you freeze 1cm of water in the bottom, then sit food in the colander.
It is not guaranteed for use in the microwave. This may come as a surprise to those who have used one in the microwave for many years with no problems. I would not be doing my job if I did not tell you that an old-style Multiserver could be damaged by microwaves, and the material is not fully microwave-safe.
