By cooking without using water, the ingredients' flavor and nutrients are not lost, making the natural taste of the vegetables stand out. The potatoes and lotus root will have a soft texture in addition to the zucchini and brussel sprouts, all absorbing the savory taste of the seafood.
The result will remind you of a special meal.
Compared to cooking with other pots, the ingredients will not burn and stick to the bottom and the ingredients are cooked thoroughly and soft.
