    Care and use:

    • This is a cast iron pot.
    • Suitable for open fire, oven, induction, haolgen. Do not put in Microwave or dishwasher.
    • Wash with warm water before first use.
    • Season before first use: Apply some salad oil to the pot and put on the heat source until faint smoke arises. This makes and oil coating on the pot's surface and prevents rust.
    • Do not leave the food in the pot after cooking, especially the ones with strong acidity or salt.
    • Wash with warm water and non abrasive brush and put over low heat until dry. Then apply a little oil before storing in a dry place. Do not sure in high humidity or leave wet to store as it will produce rust.
    • Baked coated cast iron - this black surface baked coating can be lost over time with use and the underneath iron will show thorugh in time. But htis is not a fault nor a problem. The underneath iron will be oxidised and its colour will change to reddish brown or black. There is no problem if the product is taken good care of. It is a traditional craft of Japan that can be used for a long time.

    Caution:

    All parts of the pot will become hot with cooking and after. Please use oven gloves and exercise caution.
