Works are different from each other, because they are handmade.
’Yakihime' means high-fired unglazed ceramics.
Yakishime (unglazed ) vessels are made of rough clay with absorbency. It may absorb oil or water content of foods and stains might be left without preparation. Following steps are recommended before the first use. 1. Soak the vessel in the water with a spoonful of potato starch or the water left over from washing rice. 2. Boil it for 20 minutes and let it cool down as it is. 3. Take the vessel out from the water, and wash it. 4. Leave it to dry completely. Especially on white Yakishime vessels, stains may be sometimes easily seen, so the recommendation of treatment every time before use is to let it wet 5-10 seconds for avoiding stains left. After use, please wash it a soft sponge using a natural detergent for the tableware, and dry it well before putting it back. Avoid using them in dishwasher, microwave, and oven.
