What if I don't own a steamer? - Don't worry we have you covered.

It's one of the most common questions customers raise ... "How do I steam a Love bun without a steamer?"
And to be honest, it is one of the easiest questions to answer. (Not like listing all the ingredients that go into a golden playtime GF cake.)
Basically, you sit your buns in a bowl and steam the bowl in a saucepan! The trick is actually to choose a bowl that fits neatly inside the saucepan so that the lid closes properly - after all, you need to build up a good sauna for your buns.
The second tip is (contrary to intuition) you choose a bowl with a curved bottom. This allows any steam water to drain to the curved part of the bowl and not have your buns touch the water.
