This is just the best thing to have in a home. Made of cypress wood and a gorgeous addition to the dining table.
Holds rice temperature perfectly and is the elegant way to hold your rice.
Kiso Sawara is a water and high acid resistant wood making it the perfect choice for making sushi rice in. One of the "5 trees of Kiso," the craftsmen who produce these holders choose only its straight grain and hand tighten the rings in order to keep its natural shape for a lesser chance of warping.
This is the smaller home version of a traditional "ohitsu" used in Japanese kitchens to maintain rice temperature and freshness. We use this to offer our table extra steamed Jasmine rice while dining at the table.
Never place in dish washer. Use a little mineral oil once in awhile to season the wood. Store dry and clean.
