[Wood and lacquered bowls] Introducing recommended bowls that you will want to keep using forever

This time, I would like to introduce some recommended bowls.

Miso soup is a familiar dish at Japanese dining tables.
When choosing a bowl to serve miso soup, many people may want to choose a bowl that is particular about its soft texture and the way it feels when wrapped in their hands.

There are various types of materials, and I don't know which one will suit me...

You'd like to buy a nice bowl, but you're worried about which one to choose.

For those people, we recommend wooden bowls or lacquered bowls!

The interesting thing about lacquered and wooden bowls is that the more you use them, the more their flavor develops, so you can enjoy the changes as well.

Introducing stylish bowls such as wooden bowls that make you feel relaxed just by holding them, and lacquerware with a moist and glossy texture that makes you feel comfortable.

For those people, we recommend the white rabbit bowl, which has a charming round shape.

This is a different color of the shirasagi bowl introduced in the wooden bowl section.

Rather than being bright red, the color is more like a thin layer of deep red, reminiscent of pomegranate, applied to the base of the wood.
The slightly visible wood grain gives it a great taste.

It is true craftsmanship that makes this wood grain look beautiful.
It is made using a technique called ``wipe lacquer,'' which involves repeatedly applying and wiping lacquer to allow the lacquer to soak into the wood.

There is also a different color with a thin layer of black that has a matte texture.

Caring for wooden and lacquered bowls

Cleaning your wooden bowl

How to wash

Wood bowls are often painted with urethane, so you can use neutral detergents on them.
Although it is resistant to water, it absorbs odors and dirt more easily than tableware made of other materials, so you should not soak it in water.
After washing, wipe it with a cloth and let it dry.

Avoid using the dishwasher as the heat may warp or deform the wood.

Detailed handling instructions vary depending on the product, so we recommend reading each product description before use.

Cleaning your lacquered bowl

Before use

New lacquerware may have a unique scent.
If you are concerned about it, take it out of the box and leave it in a well-ventilated, shaded place for a few days.

Also, if you suddenly put something hot into it, the wood may become deformed, so it's a good idea to blanch it in lukewarm water before using it.

How to wash

Lacquerware has the impression that it is difficult to maintain, but it can be washed with a mild detergent and a soft sponge.

However, it is a softer material than other pottery, so it is best to wash it separately from ceramics and glass.

After washing, wipe the water thoroughly with a cloth. When doing this, be especially careful when wiping the bottom of the bowl and other areas where water tends to collect.

Depending on the product, some bowls are recommended to be washed with only cold or hot water, and some bowls can be washed in the dishwasher, so we recommend reading each product description before using.
