On the handling of Iga pot product


Before using for the first time

Because the absorbency of the dough is high, it is necessary to cook porridge and to "seal" beforehand. Rice starch fills the fine crack (intrusion) of the pot and prevents leakage. If you neglect this, it will crack, water leakage will occur easily, so please be forewarned.

About the crack (intrusion) of the pot

Ebayutsu will repeatedly inflate and deflate by putting on fire during the making process. Cracks (intrusions) may be entered at that time, but it is not that it cracked, It is the nature of the pot with Iga heat resistant soil. On the whole, pottery Japanese dishes are required to have a seal before using for the first time. It prevents dirt from entering the penetration, it blocks the rough part of the soil, making it difficult for water to leak, which helps to keep dishes longer. It is recommended not only at the beginning but also periodically checking if you are concerned.

Method of sealing

(1) I will put plenty of water in the pot for about 8 minutes. (2) I will put rice of about 1.5 minutes. (3) Please boil so that it will not spill over with a low heat. (4) When the porridge is finished, please stop the fire and cool it naturally. (5) After cooling down, remove rice porridge, wash it with water and dry thoroughly.
