MIYABI-URUSHI Ohitsu (Cooked Rice Jar) 18cm
Ohitsu is a traditional tool for storing cooked rice. Ohitsu would bring out the flavor of rice by moderately cooling down and absorbing excess moisture.
This Ohitsu is made of Sawara wood (type of cypress) from Kiso, Nagano. Sawara wood has been traditionally used for kitchen and bath tools for its high durableness. Each Ohitsu is neatly finished by plane.
-Due to the feature of Sawara wood, wood tar may appear on the surface.
-Color of the wood and copper band may change after usage.
-Too dry atmosphere may cause shrinkage and the copper band may come off.
-Do not wash with detergent. We recommend washing with water and Tawashi brush.
-Do not dry under direct sunlight.
-NOT dishwasher safe.
-Please note it is not a tub for water and may leak when filling with liquid.
