This iron kettle is easy to use, and designed to be incorporated into everyday life. Using white oak wood for the handles and knobs, the craftsman tried to make the design with wood to soften the solid image of the iron castings. The bottom is made into a flat shape, which can enhance the heat conductivity, ensuring the optimal bottom area for an electromagnetic cooker.

Finishing is done using the traditional technique used in iron kettle making in Japan, unglazed at 800 degrees, covered with an oxide film to prevent rust, and lacquered baking finish on the top, the a burnt finish of lacquer inside the pot. Hot water boiled with this type of iron kettle can effectively eliminate chlorine (kalky) in the tap water, making it a delicious mellow hot water.

In addition, since the inner layer iron is extracted into the hot water during the boiling, there is the merit that the iron necessary for the body can be naturally consumed daily.

The acompanied cast iron warmer can be selected to make a set, and which can keep the boiling water, in the pot, warm, and perfect for drinking anytime during the day.

As the hot water boiled with this kettle will carry a slight healthy iron element, it would blend nicely with Japanese tea, while reacting with the tannin element in the tea leaves, resulted of an enjoyable and tasty tea for you !.

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design.

We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to modern demands. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.
