*Important note regarding the difference in shading and red spots seen on Nambu ironware
During the production of an iron kettle, there is a process in which the entire kettle is fired in order to apply an oxide coating to prevent rust. At this time, depending on the condition of the fire and the unevenness of the temperature, a pattern may appear on the surface of the iron kettle. Red spots can also be seen, but these are thought to be the result of too high a temperature.
