Traditional and most common, this particular type of soup pan with a single wooden handle; Yukihira Pot (雪平鍋) is an iconic Japanese kitchen tool, serving many cooking lovers from regular family homes to professional restaurants. There are 2 types of material, aluminum or copper. The copper heats up faster and has the best thermal conductivity. In addition, copper is said to have an anti-bactericidal effect. The aluminum is very lightweight and easy for daily maintenance.
A major feature of the Yukihira pot is the unevenly embossed surface achieved by the traditional hand hammering technique, which gives the pot a larger surface area than one with smooth sides. This, along with the copper material, helps to conduct and retain heat, while also making it more durable and less deformable. Because of this excellent heat retention, it is best to use this pot on a low heat for slowly simmering meals or rice. The lightly curved sides are designed to work in perfect harmony with a round rice scoop or wooden spatula, while the wood handle is convenient for lifting and tilting. Each of these pans is hand-made by skilled craftsmen, and so the appearance will not be as uniform as one that has been made by machine. However, the finished product is thick and durable, which you can feel by the weight in your hand. Because copper is a soft metal that is easily oxidized, the colour will eventually change and get darker over time and with use. With the extremely functional design, the copper Yukihira pot appears very pleasing to the eye and will be a beautiful piece to proudly display in your kitchen.
Make sure to take good care of this item and it will last for a long time! Always wash well and dry thoroughly after use, making sure not to store food in it for long periods of time. Do not use excessive heat (200℃ or higher), as this may cause damage to the tinning inside. Do not use harsh metal utensils or cleaning tools, as this may also cause damage.
Recommended to use with a pot lid (available separately).

Copper has high antibacterial & antimicrobial properties making it a suitable material for teaware and many other cookware such as pots and kettles. When copper products are intentionally left uncoated, they are open to copper’s natural chemical oxidation. The finish & colour will transform over time to a stunningly deep rust-like patina, a process accelerated by extended handling and use.
