IH What is "Tamba 9"?
How to seal the first potThere are many small cracks entering the pot with penetration (kannyu). Before starting to use it in earnest, I will do "seal" to fill this penetration. It can prevent cracking and odor transfer, and it has the effect of keeping the pot as it is durable for a long time. [Materials for sealing] ·water · Flour or potato starch (about 10% relative to water)
I will dissolve the flour in water. Melt with a bowl beforehand.
I will crush it firmly so that wheat flour will not remain.
Put the contents of the bowl in the pot. The eighth minute of the pot is sufficient.
Please be careful as it may blow over when boiling as it fills your eyes.
Warmly warm the pot with a low fire. If it boils, stop the fire and let it cool.
As the pot is pretty hot with preheating please cool down firmly.
Please throw away the contents and rinse it as the pot cools down.
If you take water well and dry it, filling is complete.
※ If the moisture remains, the sun drying is the best because it will cause mold.
How to wash the potAs the pot is vulnerable to sudden temperature changes Please cool down firmly after use. If you leave juice from the pot beforehand, it will cool down more quickly.
When mold and smell have stuck to the potSince the pot has characteristics that it is easy to absorb moisture Odor and mold may stick. You can use it without problems if firm maintenance is done even in such a case. 【Molds for odor and smell removal】 · Tea Leaves (Appropriate amount) · Water (about 8 minutes in pot)
Wash the pot and take mold fairly.
Wipe the area exposed to the fire behind the pot and remove moisture.
I put tea leaves and water and put them on the fire. The amount of water will be about the eighth of the pot.
Please heat the pan slowly with a low heat. When the whole pot warms up, heat it up to medium heat and warm until it boils.
If you boil over medium heat, boil it for 10 minutes with a low heat. Please cool down as soon as you have finished boiling.
Rinse thoroughly and dry. Take water well and dry it with sun dried and you can take mold fairly.
How to dry the pot and store itSince the pot has characteristics that it is easy to absorb moisture If you do wrong storage method, it may cause mold mold. I will introduce the correct way to use the pot for a long time.
After use, wash the pot with water firmly and sun it in a well-ventilated place. It will dry thoroughly after sun drying for 2 to 3 days. If you want to dry early, you can warm up in a microwave for about 1 minute and even a day's sun drying is OK.
※ Please also read the precaution carefully as the microwave oven is not good in the pot
Wrap with newspaper when storing. If you put it in a box or wrap it in a lap, moisture accumulates and mold grows. When storing the pot, it is best to wrap around the newspaper and keep it. The newspaper absorbs moisture from outside and prevents dust in the air from invading.
Let's keep it in a well-ventilated place such as a cupboard or a store. It is good to avoid under humid sink etc because moisture tends to accumulate.
