Nambu Ironware is one of Japan's leading traditional crafts with a history of over 900 years.
Founded in 1852, Oigen Foundry Co., Ltd. continues to make products such as iron pots and kettles that are indispensable to people's lives as a long-established store of Nambu Ironware. The iron kettle is for boiling water. "Kikko" literally means “shells of tortoises” and is an auspicious pattern in Japan. This product supports not only open fire but also IH. For long-term use, please read the instruction manual carefully.
【How to use】
・Before first use, rinse inside the kettle and pour water. After boiling it without the lid, drain hot water and repeat it 2-3 times.
・After boiling the water, please use it up or move it to an insulated water bottle. Dry inside the kettle with remaining heat. Or take the lid off and heat the kettle up. Stop heating soon after making the inside dry. Please don’t heat it too much without the water.
・Don’t leave the kettle with water because it may cause rust.
・Don’t touch and wash the inside of the kettle. Don’t rub with a sponge or scrubbing brush.
