Couscoussier - shiny new?
This is a shiny, new couscoussier. There were traditional copper or even earthenware ones. Then there were aluminium ones. Now they're stainless steel.
BUT remember that a colander over a saucepan of water works just as well. Asking around, it seems most households just use this method. One less gadget in the cupboard.
Here's a small amount I'm steaming. (Yes folks, my 1959 Frigidaire De Luxe stove - vintage to the end).
NOTE: Don't go all holier-than-thou health food, wholemeal couscous. It's not nice. Doesn't absorb the butter or the sauces well.

Where can I buy one

Ring Chefs' Warehouse in Sydney and ask them or buy online from Fishpond.com.au. The steamer on the Thermomix might work too but remember that most real cooks just use a colander over a saucepan.

Do you put the lid on?

The couscoussier comes with a lid but that's for when you're just simmering a broth in the bottom section. When steaming the couscous grain, no lid. And of course a colander over a saucepan is perfect.
