About BaNKO ware
Yokkaichi Banko ware is a ceramic ware produced in Yokkaichi City, Mie Prefecture. Since ancient times, it has been used to make daily necessities such as tea bowls and plates, as well as works of art such as vases.
Today, Kyusu teapots and earthenware pots are representative products of Banko ware, and earthenware pots in particular account for 80% to 90% of all earthenware pots produced in Japan.
Yokkaichi Banko ware is characterized by the excellent heat resistance due to the ceramic clay used. The clay used for earthenware pots is mixed with about 40% lithium ore called petalite, which has a high heat resistance. This technique is patented by Yokkaichi Banko ware and cannot be seen anywhere else.
This grater is amazing. I thought it might mush the grated substance in the tiny grooves, but it was easy to scoop out all the grated goods.
