Composed of 99% tin and 1% silver, Japanese pewter is sublimely suited for the consumption of food and beverages, not only enduringly retaining its radiance, form, and luster but also its complexity - all without the necessity of frequent polishing as with silver.
Aesthetically timeless, this substantial water kettle is meant to be perched atop an open flame. Adorned with an oxidized patina, a hammer-marked texture, and a decorative knob on the lid, its minimal design highlights the quality of the materials and crafting. Boil herbs and water with the integrated strainer, then marvel at its lightness despite its size. With use, it will become increasingly more beautiful, and the silver lining will impart the water with softness.
*It is recommended to use the smallest burner when placing on the stove, keeping the flame on medium/low, and avoid having the flame climb up the sides and leaving marks on the kettle.
