I bought this kit as a gift for my sister and she is so excited to try it! It’s beautifully made with quality components. And the company’s customer service is outstanding. My order got lost in transit and Kim, the co-founder, contacted me and personally mailed a replacement kit the day she was notified that my order had been lost. Because of her help, I was able to still give my sister her gift on time. I will definitely purchase more kits as gifts and will also be buying some for myself 🙂.

This kit includes 10 parchment steamer liners and approximately enough agar agar powder to make a batch of 24 dumplings twelve times (that’s 288 dumplings!).
Can I make other dim sum recipes with this kit?
You can use this kit to create other popular dim sum recipes including potstickers and bao buns. Potstickers use the same dough recipe, are folded a little differently, and don’t require the agar agar powder. For bao buns, the dough is slightly different including sugar and fast acting yeast. Both can be found at your local grocery store.
LEARN A NEW TALENT
Stir, stew, and fold your way to savory dumplings that warm your belly & flaunt your culinary skills.
DARE TO DUMPLING
Once you get the general hang of it, filling dumplings with your favorite wild flavors is only a mixing bowl away.
GIVE THE SURPRISE OF SOUP
Why send flowers when you can send delicate dough pouches overflowing with soup?! (Hint: Don’t send the flowers.)
Your tastebuds will never get bored

Great quality by a wonderful company
AMAZING! This was a great stay at home date night for my boyfriend and I, it does take some time to prepare the stock jelly for the filling and the dough. Also for the filling mixture, I tried out the vegetable filling, I added double the amount of seasonings. Everything was delicious, my younger siblings and parents thought it was amazing too. Definitely well spent money and will be making them again and again.
Hi: I gave this kit to my 28 year old son for Christmas. He loves to cook and he absolutely adores soup dumplings. He and his girlfriend made them last night and sent me a great Snapchat of the finished product. I wish I could share it with you but I did not save it. The dumplings looked exactly like what you would order in a restaurant. It was definitely a surprise gift and one that was most appreciative.
A perfect introduction to dumplings
Recently, while googling cooking kits, I came across the Cooking Gift Set Co. site and when I saw the soup dumpling kit – I thought it was brilliant. (There other sets are equally brilliant and rumor has it a French tart kit is in the works – be still my heart.)
This brilliant kit has everything needed to create soup dumplings at home. Included is a small bamboo steamer basket, a two-sided dumpling dough rolling pin, parchment rounds, agar-agar powder (will transform most any soup into a dumpling filling), a bamboo filling spatula, and an instructional booklet to get you started.
With a few additional tools (many that we already have in our kitchens and some fresh ingredients), you can be making delicious homemade dumplings easily! I consider myself a good cook with a well-stocked kitchen and I am thrilled with the contents of this kit and the easy to follow instructions! I love the smaller steamer basket and the roller is perfect for all kinds of smaller dough jobs. In a matter of minutes, you can be on your way to making perfect soup dumplings. I made soup dumplings from leftover wonton soup broth and they were incredible.
