This is essentially a pot, which has just a bit of liquid in it, and then inside of that sits another pot that rests on the top of the first pot. The liquid is heated and this slowly and evenly transfers heat to the second pot. This also stops the water from reaching boiling point due to the pressure that’s created by the gap between the pots.
