I'm a Canadian with no experience making steamed puddings. I don't have a 'pudding basin', but I do have the Queen's Pudding Boiler, No. 16. Would this work as a pudding basin? or do you think it might too old and delicate for long-time boiling? The bowl doesn't have any cracks. Should I line the lid with parchment etc.? Pointers for steamer or recipes would also be welcome! I found this picture on the internet, it's the same as my bowl.
