Method:

-  Add water to the saucepan let it boil.
-  Place the Pyrex bowl on top of the saucepan.
Note: Be careful when you choose your saucepan and bowl. The bowl must not be too big or too small for the bowl.  In other words when you place the bowl over the saucepan the bottom of the bowl must not touch the water boiling. The resulting heat should come from the vapour and not the water. In this way you avoid having hot water splashed around.
-  Place whatever you want to heat SLOWLY away from direct fire in the bowl and follow recipe insturctions.
Cheers.
