Designed in the late 1990s by legendary designer Sori Yanagi drawing inspiration on the 900-year history of cast ironwork in the Tōhoku region of northern Japan, this Nambu Tekki (cast iron) deep stewing pot features extra-thick cast iron for superior retention and quick distribution of heat, which translated into evenly-cooked, delicious dishes, while the hefty lid retains moisture and draws out the natural richness and umami of the ingredients. A cast iron fork lifts off the lid without burning your fingers and without the need for a potholder.
The production of each pot involves between 64 and 68 different steps and the inside is gently curved to make it easier to scoop up its contents, while the rims are also curved to ensure that liquids can be poured freely.
Suited to stovetops, ovens, and IH cookers.
An almost eternal masterpiece.
