Recently, “Natural and Organic” materials are becoming a standard into our lives. The time has come for high quality products such as “Made in Japan” products. That’s why Vermicular made this kitchen item series, to fulfill the aspirations of our time.
Our pot cover called “Heat Keeper” and pot holder are made from 100% organic cotton canvas. Every single piece is strongly weaved by veteran craftsmen, using threads of organic cotton. The gently textured fabric and lovely design make them articles for both the kitchen and the dining room. No doubt the possibility of cuisine and fun will expand!
Well simmered stew in savory broth, low-temperature cooked juicy and rich tender roast-beef, as well as steamed creamy custard pudding, let’s widely expand the possibility of cuisine with the Heat Keeper’s outstanding heat retention properties! Covering a heated pot with the Heat Keeper enables to keep a high temperature for a long time without boiling. Using this unique heat retention allows a new way of cooking, different from open fire and oven. In other words, the Heat Keeper is a “new kitchen item”. Combined with the Vermicular pot, it will easily bring professional taste to your home cooking without fear of failure. Of course, it also keeps the food warm and ready to serve anytime. Its attractive and colorful design also makes it a beautiful object to have pride of place on your dining table!
Above all, let us notice the Heat Keeper’s excellent heat retention properties. We boiled water at 100℃ (212℉) and checked temperature after three hours. Despite its high heat retention properties, the Vermicular pot alone cooled down to 48°C (118℉). Associated to the Heat keeper, it remained at 78°C (172℉)! One of the biggest advantages is to drastically shorten the cooking time. For example, after cooking braised pork belly, just cover the heated pot with the Heat Keeper for the meat to slowly continue cooking and turn meltingly tender to the core. Although it usually takes a long time to cook on direct heat, cooking time will now be reduced to one third. By the way, it also contributes saving energy such as gas and electricity. Cooking will continue while the pot is placed into the Heat Keeper. Meanwhile, you can do other housework or even go out. Don’t worry since the pot is not on fire; no need to care for it. You should also be glad to have an extra burner available while your pot is continuing cooking inside the Heat Keeper.
The double handles of the Vermicular pot are appreciated for being ergonomic, thus allowing an easy handling even while the pot is containing food. The “Pot-holders” are designed to perfectly fit these characteristic double handles. Their semicircular and fluffy shape makes them a lovely item. It also can be used as simple mittens to grasp the knob and open the lid. But unlike mittens, they can easily be worn or taken off with only one single hand. Made from natural and gentle tones, beige, pink, green and charcoal gray are the 4 available colors. It can be hung up on a hook or can stand alone, at your convenience. Anyway, it will soon become an indispensable kitchen item for your daily use.
The gently textured fabric of our pot cover and pot holder is coming from them being made of 100% organic cotton canvas. It is carefully weaved by Japanese craftsmen, using threads of organic cotton grown without chemical pesticide and fertilizer. Heat retention becomes more effective by sandwiching the thick cotton wadding in between. Finishing up with hands for details, the craftsmen produce it with care and diligence. Some other advantages of organic cotton are comfort and ease of use. It is easy to wash, and it is also conceived to always look good even when stored. For example, pinch the Heat Keeper’s buttoned handles to make it slim and more convenient to store in a drawer or cupboard.
