This cooking steamer is called ‘tatolonan’ in Amis language. It was constructed from two cooking pots, one on top of the other. In the middle, sticks were used to penetrate in order to create small holes. Water poured through these small holes to form the steam after heated during the cooking process. The food, usually made from rice, was placed on top of taro leaves so as not to stick to the steamer. It is very similar to the cooking steamer we use in modern life.
