There are two main types of double boilers: inserts and sets. Each come with their own set of pros and cons, so consider how you’ll be using it before you choose. Note that the choice will largely come down to space and use frequency.
A double boiler insert is just a pot that sits on top of another pot that you already own to create a double boiler effect. As you only have to store one new item, they’re pretty space-efficient.
Heat water in the bottom pot until it’s simmering; fill the top pot with ingredients while it’s still cool and lower it onto the bottom pot. If you put the ingredients into an already hot top pot, you run the risk of burning the ingredients.
