Nambu Tekki is the ironware created by highly skilled craftsmen in Nambu domain, which is now Iwate prefecture of Japan. Nambu ironware dates back to the early 17th century when the iron kettle craftsmen were invited from Kyoto by the feudal lord.

Beautiful, practical and also highly durable. This well-designed Japanese Nambu Tekki kettle has excellent heat distribution and retention properties, keeping heat for long periods. Iron kettles have many other benefits, including providing supplemental iron and improving the flavour of the water.

Material: Iron
Dimensions: W18 ×D15×H20 cm
Volume: 1L

Before use: 
Boil water and drain it completely for 3 times to get rid of any initial dirt or dust from the inside.

Daily care: 
Dry thoroughly after each use. It is recommended to add a small amount of water after use and place the kettle over a low heat until all the excess water has evaporated. 

Special care:
Please note that iron kettles may rust slightly due to natural oxidisation. It will not have any negative influence on health. A slight film will appear inside after approximately one month, which can prevent rust. Please do not scrub it off.

If there are red spots inside the kettle and become more visible, please use a soft sponge to gently clean it. After that boil water with Sencha tea leaves, and continue this on low heat for 30 minutes. Sencha is perfect for clean ironwares, you can use it to clean the exterior surface with a soft cloth as well.

*Iron kettles do not have enamel coating inside and they are only designed for boiling water. Please do not use them to brewing tea.
