Oh heavens no. They still expect me to cook for them. In fact The Pirate is on his way here now for a home cooked meal. After I just got the kitchen cleaned up.

A year or so ago I had to write up a will. The kids made sure they each had a list of what they wanted from my kitchen. The rest of the house didn't matter.

Maybe some of our Jewish friends can help jbb out? No clue here.

I've got one of these. It's great for things like boiling crawfish. Steam corn in the top basket while the taters and crawfish are cooking in the bottom. Works great for fish fry gatherings too.

It's really too big to use regularly for just family size meals.

This may not be the original cookwear you saw, but I bet it would do the job, especially at the listed price. Le Vrai Gourmet stainless steel 20cm multi level steamer - Steamers - Cookware - Home & furniture -

I got this set: Shop Fagor 2-Quart Double Boiler with Steamer Insert at CHEFS.

I have boiled potatoes in the bottom, steamed broccoli and used the DB insert on top of that for keeping my gravy warm. It's the perfect size for two people.

I've never seen or heard of what the OP is describing.

I can't find a tiered cooking pot (like described) anywhere, but the meal is called cholent. There are quite a few websites describing it. It looks like most folks cook it in either a Dutch oven or crock pot. As long as it's cooked the day before the Jewish Sabbath it's OK to leave it plugged in or in the oven to keep warm through the night into the sabbath. It looks like stew that is built in layers and Wiki has a pic of one with eggs on top.
At least that's my gentile take on it

Maybe the multi tiered cooker is a fiambreras?

Go to Chowhound.com and post your question on their Kosher board. Someone there will have the definitive answer!
