Nambu Ironware, Iron pot, LABO




This product is cast iron, rust may occur due to moisture and humidity.


An enchanting vessel that beckons you to engage in culinary pursuits and embrace creativity.
A vessel that bridges the gap between the cook and the diner, forging a closer connection.

In this era shadowed by the Coronavirus Disease, which tends to drive people apart, let us strive to draw closer together.

Guided by this sentiment, we have conceived and brought forth a novel iron pot, christened as LABO—a name derived from "laboratory."

Indeed, LABO serves as a receptacle that nurtures your inventiveness and resourcefulness. It emerges from the desire for a chic pot that minimizes the risk of boiling over, remains lightweight, caters to two individuals, and adds an element of delight to cooking.

The genesis of this creation traces back to a customer's request in the summer of 2020—a time when she, residing alone, found herself confined indoors by the sweeping Coronavirus Pandemic. Our response began with the incorporation of a drop-lid design, influenced by the Japanese traditional tabletop clay pot.

Additionally, a steam vent has been ingeniously integrated, conferring upon the pot a heightened resistance to spillage. The handle exhibits a distinct character, while the lid assumes the charming semblance of a fruit stem, rendering it both visually endearing and instantly recognizable.

Furthermore, the design of the lid ensures its stability when inverted, preventing any unintended rolling.
