The Oigen Nambu Iron Kettle is made of cast iron for high durability and features a pouring spout, a lid, and a handle crossing over the top. The arare pattern and shape, peculiar to Nambu iron kettle, is inspired by round moon.
Nambu ironware is admired around the world not only for its fine quality and simplistic beauty, but also for its high durability. The Nambu iron kettle, in particular, is held in high regard and was certified as a Traditional Craftwork of Japan in 1975 due in part to the worldwide recognition it enjoys. As a result, it now adorns many homes in Europe and America.
This Japanese Tetsubin is commonly used for boiling and pouring hot water for drinking purposes, such as making tea. Tea brewing with hot water boiled in an iron kettle and drinking hot water have been popular since ancient times.
There are also health benefits to using the Nambu iron kettle. Drinking water boiled in the kettle supplements iron in the diet, and the water is said to taste milder and improve in quality through repeated use of the kettle.
Please use about 80% of the full water capacity. Please note that if it exceeds this, it will be easy to spill.
Moisture may cause rust, so do not leave water in and dry with residual heat after use. If moisture remains, remove the lid and heat for about 30 seconds.
Although it is an IH cooker compatible product, the IH cooker has a higher heating power than a gas stove, so please use it with moderate heat while gradually increasing the temperature. Sudden heating can cause distortion and cracking.
The iron kettle is a product exclusively for boiling water. Do not touch the inside of the iron kettle because it absorbs minerals and attaches a natural protective film (scale).
Due to the nature of casting, there are some individual differences in size and weight.

The kettle is fantastic. Everyone who sees it love it. I did not get my 20% discount. I had a code, and still no discount. Also there was no notice of shipping, although they stated they would provide shipping info. As I stated in the beginning the kettle is great, yea taste better. The quality of the kettle outweighs the small inconveniences. I will continue to make purchases from this company.

we are enjoying the use of our kettle; it meets our expectations and daily use for miso soup and tea. keep the inside dry when not in use by following the instructions on how to use the kettle, easy enough. we measure the required water for our usage, which helps to have a near empty kettle when the hot water is used up after we have made our soup or tea, or both; the latent heat in the kettle helps to evaporate the minimal and any residual hot water. our kettle is our trophy piece and kept on our dining room table. enjoy

I wanted one of these kettles for a.long time, but there are so many cheap knockoffs. Buying from a trusted Japanese company was important, and Japanese Taste has great service for international customers.
