The Si-bag™ is suitable for use in the oven, microwave or freezer. The Steam Cooking Bag is a bag made from very-high-temperature-resistant film, which combines practicality with simplicity. The meal is sealed in using a foldover flap and the bag becomes odour and leak-proof. Just pop it in the oven or microwave to cook... it’s that easy! Flavoured butters and glazes can be added.
