What is Nambu ironware?
Over its several hundred year history, Nambu Tekki has preserved and passed on traditional techniques, while at the same time incorporating new designs in line with the times to create products that are rooted in people's daily lives.
Iron is a material with excellent heat storage and insulation properties. Once iron stores heat, it does not easily cool down, and it can evenly distribute heat to food.
Cast iron tends to be thicker due to its manufacturing process, and thus has even better heat storage and retention properties.
It is also said to be effective for iron supplementation, as iron is leached out as divalent iron, which is easily absorbed by the body. The fact that it can be used not only over an open flame but also on an induction stove (*) or in an oven makes it suitable for a wide range of uses is another of its charms.
In addition to standard items such as sukiyaki pots, Kamasa Shoten also offers a selection of original Nambu ironware.
Before using for the first time
Please be sure to "acclimate" the pot before use.
Pour more oil into the pot and fry vegetables over low heat for about 5 to 10 minutes, using the parts of vegetables that are discarded (leek heads, celery leaves, etc.) so that the oil will cover the entire surface of the pot.
- After use, we recommend that you wash the pot with water or hot water and a scrubbing brush only, without using detergent. (If detergent is used, it will remove the oil film that has become accustomed to the ironware.) If there is any residue, it may cause corrosion, so be sure to thoroughly wash off any stains (burnt-on food, sauce, salt, etc.).
) Any residue will cause corrosion, so please wash off any stains (burnt-on food, sauces, salt, etc.) thoroughly.
- Iron utensils rust very easily, so after washing, wipe dry and be sure to "air-bake" the utensils over a flame (*) to properly remove moisture.
*Do not continue heating for a long period of time, but only allow them to dry out.
*If you only wipe them dry, water may remain on them and rust may appear.
- Allow the pot to cool down sufficiently and store it in a dry place as much as possible.
- This cast iron product may rust depending on usage conditions.
- When using the pot on an induction stove, raise the temperature gradually. Sudden temperature changes may deform the pot and render it unusable.
*Some products are not compatible with induction stoves. Please be careful.
- Wash immediately after cooking. Leaving food in the pot may transfer the metallic smell to the food. Also, the moisture and salt in the food can easily cause rust and corrosion on the pot. Please be especially careful with highly acidic foods such as tomatoes and vinegar.
- There are individual differences in size.
