  • Recall Who’ll Be There: The number of guests (up to 8 unique visitors this 2021) will give you a rough estimate on how much ingredients and utensils you’ll need to prepare. If your guests are big eaters, consider purchasing more ingredients. For kids, consider what types of food they enjoy eating, for e.g, sausages and seaweed chicken. 
  • Be Mindful Of Dietary Restrictions: Check with your family and guests if they have any dietary restrictions, preferences or allergies. You can let them look through the list of ingredients you’ll be preparing to see if they’re okay with it.

Steamboat & Hot-Pot Essentials Checklist

To enjoy a fuss-free and smooth reunion dinner with your family, ensure that you have these essentials set up and ready on your dining table. 

For Guests

To save you the trouble of washing all the dishes after dinner, opt for eco-friendly disposable utensils! Your guests can easily dispose of it after they’re done.
