What is a Double Boiler?
A double boiler is a cooking tool for applying gentle heat from an indirect source. It’s composed of two pots: a larger one that looks like your regular cooking pot, and a shallower one that fits perfectly inside.
Why Do You Need a Double Boiler?
Double boilers are used for recipes that need gentle cooking as some ingredients are extremely heat-sensitive. They can be used for melting or cooking food.
