What is Yukihira Pot (Yukihira Nabe)
A Yukihira pot is characterized by its rounded bottom and slightly extended body, providing a unique design for cooking.
This versatile pot is perfect for a multitude of cooking including boiling, simmering, stir-frying, and steaming.
In Japan, it has been a staple in every household, serving as an indispensable all-purpose pot. Its wide range of uses makes it an essential kitchen tool.
The reason why Yukihira Pot is favored by both professional and home cooks in Japan can be attributed to its unique feature known as Tsuchime. This technique, called Tan-Kin, involves a skilled craftsman meticulously hammering the pot's surface, creating an uneven texture that enhances its performance.
There are two reasons for hammering: to improve heat conduction by increasing surface area, and to enhance strength. A pot with hammered marks is known to maintain its strength even after 40 years.
