A healthier way of being

Carbon graphite is safe to both the human body and the global environment, and provides a healthy and eco-friendly option for cooking.
The ceramic coating is made of natural materials.

︎Revealing the umami of each ingredient

Thanks to the far-infrared emitted by carbon graphite, the ingredients are cooked quickly with minimal damage, thus concentrating the flavor. It reduces the time it takes to heat up, creating a crisp texture and flavor while preserving the beauty of the ingredients.

In addition, the excellent thermal conductivity of carbon graphite allows it to transfer heat quickly to the entire pot, making it possible to heat uniformly.

High heat retention, an energy saving cooking tool

The cubic shape of the kakugama retains heat on all four edges and maintains a uniform temperature even when the kakugama is removed from the heat source. This fitting design creates an excellent seal and maintains the pot’s internal temperature and humidity, allowing for heating with residual heat. The kakugama keeps heat for about 1 hour out of a heating source.

Preserving the essence and the shape of each ingredient

Carbon graphite contains countless small cavities which create micro-bubbles. Added to the continuous convection created by the imo-gata (rounded bottom) shape of kakugama, the micro-bubbles envelop the ingredients and gently heat them. As a result, it preserves the essence and the shape of each ingredient.

Compatible to all heat sources

The kakugama can be used on every heat source, induction heat, gas, oven, except in a microwave. The product is resistant to thermal shocks and is not damaged or deformed by rapid cooling or heating.

A three-part structure that draws on the wisdom of Japanese cuisine

The kakugama has an outer lid and an inner lid. While the outer lid made from carbon graphite efficiently seals in moisture and heat, the inner lid made of Japanese cypress perfectly stabilizes moisture during cooking.
