As the name suggests, it is a playful kettle in the shape of Japan's quintessential citrus. The surface has been skillfully made in the texture of the yuzu by using large grains of sand. The lid is highlighted with a knob resembling the tree branch connected to the fruit. The unique iron wrought handle “fukurohan” is made by folding a flat sheet into a cylinder and does not conduct heat, remaining cool to the touch. The mushikui details on the handle perfectly balance with the organic shape of the knob on the lid resembling a tree branch connected to the fruit. After the melted iron cools, the sand mold is broken, creating a new one for each kettle. The iron kettles will soften the water taste and maintain higher boiling temperatures than other materials. The kettle is intended to be put on an open flame or induction.
*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.
