Williams Sonoma Signature Thermo-Clad Steam & Braise Oven The Williams Sonoma Signature Thermo-Clad Steam & Braise Oven may cost a pretty penny, but it's made to last, so you could potentially prepare hundreds of batches in it. It's also big enough to steam an entire fish, as well as induction ready. williams-sonoma.com

To complement a range of cookware sets, we've elected to keep both smaller and larger options, from the diminutive Oster 3-Quart Casserole to the robust Concord Stock Pot that's offered in sizes from 40 to 180 quarts. You'll need room to store these larger sizes, of course, but for churning out larger batches, they can be worth it. We've also opted to add an electric option at this time, the Oster Double Tiered. This won't be for everyone, for a couple of reasons. To begin with, it has a 60 minute time limit, so for long steams, you'll need to refill and reset it; plus, it's on the smaller side. But for casual cooks who make small batches of tamales and don't want to bother with manually boiling water, it might be a good option to consider. And it lets you make plenty of other foods, too, which helps justify the space it will take up in your cabinets. Finally, we decided to remove both the Heuck Classics and the Bayou Classic 8512 due to availability issues.
