Sawara Cypress Edo Bin
Excellent traditional Japanese tool for keeping the flavor of rice
This is an excellent tool that has traditionally been used to absorb extra moisture from cooked rice and keep the flavor. With moderate thickness, it is made of a high quality “Kiso Sawara cypress” long known as one of five precious Kiso trees. The Sawara cypress is penetrated by fine moisture and air to maintain the appropriate humidity, preventing the rice from getting too steamy. In addition, the modest fragrance of the wood does not disturb the aroma of the food. It is appreciated not only as a cooking tool but also as tableware. In addition to those listed, various types and sizes are available both for home-use and professional-use.
