Hi Meng Tzee Luai,

Sorry for the late reply. Pour milk into a small bowl or sauce pan, place it over a bigger pot of simmer hot water.

Hello,

My brother just mentioned that he'd like to make "Steamed Cheesecake". I had to look up what it is. I'd never heard of it.

I'd like to buy him a pan to make his own. He likes to bake.

Where would I find a pan for steaming cheesecake?

Thank you for any help.
