TV Chefs' Best Kitchen Secrets
Induction Rice Cooker: Ming Tsai (left) likes Zojirushi’s: “Induction means it heats along the sides and not just on the bottom, so it cooks faster and more evenly.” From $322; zojirushi.com.
Steamers: As a Western alternative to a bamboo steamer, Tsai uses All-Clad’s stainless steel steamer insert, which fits most pots. $100; all-clad.com.
