This Nambu ironware cast iron pot, traditional in appearance with a wooden lid and iron handle, is a highly functional cooking utensil. It's versatile, ideal for sukiyaki, stews, stir-frying, and deep-frying, and is compatible with both gas and induction heating (IH).

The pot, having a slightly shallow shape and a capacity of 1.2 L (41 oz), is perfect for two people to enjoy nabe dishes. Crafted from high-quality pure iron, boiling water in this pot infuses it with beneficial iron, ideal for those seeking natural iron supplementation.

The two handles fit nicely around the edge of the pot. When lifting, use a potholder to hold both handles together before lifting. Handle carefully as ironware becomes hot when heated.

To maintain its condition, empty and dry the pot after use to prevent rust on both the outside and inside.

The charm of Nambu ironware is in its durability; it can last for decades and may be passed down through generations. Incorporate it into your daily life and witness its graceful aging over time.

NOTEBefore initial use, wash the pot with water to remove any residues from the manufacturing process and then dry thoroughly. Next, fill it with cooking oil and fry vegetable scraps or similar items over heat to further condition the surface. Once the pot has cooled down, wash and dry again, then reapply a coating of cooking oil.
