Established in 1792 in Tokyo’s business district of Nihonbashi, the manufacturer of this pot lid is a household name in Japan for their cutlery and other kitchen items.
Since the Nara period–8th century, the Yukihira pot has endured as a Japanese kitchen essential. Its signature features include a rounded wooden handle and hand-hammered surface, achieved through the metalworking technique of uchidashi. Each pot is hammered by hand, allowing the pot to hold more volume than a smooth-sided pot and also creating a surface that helps conduct and retain heat. We recommend low heat cooking with this pot because of its excellent heat retention. Regularly used in the home and professional kitchens, the Yukihira pot is used to cook many staples of Japanese cuisine, such as miso soup and dashi, among other soups and stews.
