Hi, Pamedic. Welcome to DC.

Chinese bamboo steamers will work in a microwave as well as a wok. There are also plastic steamers that will work in a microwave. Look here.

Where are you, and where are you looking? Cost Plus World Market has bamboo steamers, but I wouldn't shop on line, I'd go into one of their stores. The shipping cost is prohibitive, to say the least.

I've also seen them at World Market.

fantes.com is another Internet site that I've purchased cooking items from. Here's a link to their steamers: here.

They have quite a variety of cooking toys. Could be a dangerous place for a cookaholic.

Bamboo steamers are made to sit in a wok with a little water to make steam. You could put them in a microwave safe serving bowl or other appropriately shaped vessel with some water and pop them into the microwave with fish, chicken or veggies and steam them that way.
