Chinese Culture test

I've decided to occasionally feature a picture of something that we see on a regular basis in China that other people may not know.
So...what is this?  We ride by several of these a day.
Chinese people and people who live or have lived in China may not guess!  Post your guess on the blog, not my Facebook page, please!

Is it some kind of rice cooker or veggie steamer?

Of course, now my mind wonders if it is something for laundry... or chickens or soemthing.rofl.

I, too, was thinking an oven of some sort, probably for chickens. LOL!

My original thought was a deep fryer but I don't think they do much frying there...everyone is too skinny!

Steamer for pork buns and other things on top. Oven on bottom

I was thinking maybe a bun steamer?

Thought I posted already, but I'll try again...upper bit..layered steamer for pork buns..(chow see bao), possibly bamboo, and lower part oven.

Is it where they make a dumpling type dish? By this I mean a noodle like dough that is folded around a meat, vegetable, seasoning mixture.
I do not remember if it is cooked in oil or water. I suppose it could be both.
