Steaming Dim Sum

Can I use an electric steamer to steam Dim Sum or do I have to use a Bamboo one with a wok?

Many thanks!

An electric steamer should do the trick. You could also use a pan with a vegetable steamer insert. What's important is the steam, it doesn't much matter hoe it gets to the food.

I had the experience of steaming in an electric steamer when I cooked for a family in New Mexico and it really did not matter much. In fact it is more easier. At home, I use my wok and bamboo steamer...it is a "must-have" in my family.
