good idea andy, as usual.
i love shu mai, but i hate the clean up in the bamboo steamer.
i also use my steamer set in my wok.
if you can get your hands on banana leaves, try this. line the steamer trays with the leaves, being sure to make a few holes for the steam. then steam your favorite fish, whole if they're small, or fillets, and top with lemon grass, a splash of soy, and chopped cilantro. or try the herbs of your choice, and thin slices of lime or lemon.
i've been thinking of trying corn husks, and doing a sort of shredded mexican chicken thing in mine. also want to try to make korean steamed eggs.
