SNOW DAY CLEANING

SNOW DAY CLEANING

SNOW DAY CLEANING When temperatures drop to minus degrees and snow covers everything in sight, Finns gather their rugs, blankets, and clothes and take them outside. The coldest winter days are perfect for cleaning. The crisp winter air here in the north is perfect for airing out rugs, duvets, and pillows. As children, many Finns loved walking on chilly rugs that were just brought inside from the cold. The rugs seemed to be breathing fresh air into the home, making everything feel that much tidier.

KAKOMI

Share delicious experiences
around the table

KAKOMI is designed for sharing delicious experiences through cooking and dining together. Simple yet functional as cookwares, the items are perfect for highlighting fresh ingredients of the season. Enjoy good food and conversations around the table.

Clay pot to steam,
simmer, and stew

With the steam plate in place
you can steam ingredients to easily prepare a
healthy dish.
Without it, you can simmer and stew
to make various pot-dishes.

Clay pot that can be used with Induction cookers

Compatible with various cooktops

It can be used not only on direct fire, but also with induction heater, halogen heater, microwave, and oven.
Even in warm seasons, if you use it on an induction cooktop, the room will not get heated up and you can enjoy pot dishes comfortably.

Cook steamed recipes

By adding water to the pot and inserting the attached steam plate, you can enclose the rich taste and nutrients of ingredients without using oil.The plate is deep enough to place many ingredients and the holes allow excess moisture and oils to filter out. The shape of the hole on the rim is designed so that you can hook your finger to remove the plate easily.

Two size available

1.2L (for 1 to 2 people) is compact and easy to use every day. 2.5L (for 3 to 4 people) is active in the gathering scene

High-quality material

Advantage of the low water absorption rateWater absorption rate indicates the degree of water that seeps into the pot. As KAKOMI has a very low water absorption rate, it is easy to maintain clean and prevents odors from remaining. You can cook a pot-dish full of spices one day and make something completely different the next day.

Function of the multi-layered structureThe heating element, which allows the pot to be used on an induction cooktop, features a multi-layered structure. Glass-like glaze is sprayed evenly on the heat resistant ceramic. It is then coated with three layers of silver film and glass coating. The glass coating protects the heating element to prevent uneven heating and abnormal over-heating.
