A new proposal for a size you'll want to use
The biggest difference between modern households and those of the past is the reduction in the number of people in the household. Where single-person households and nuclear families are increasingly common, traditional iron pots are too large.

While many people are concerned about the weight and handling of traditional iron pots, the 1.3 litre LABO2 is neither too big nor too small and is designed for families with a couple or small children.

LABO2 features

  • The modern shape based on a traditional Japanese iron pot
  • The design is inspired by a Japanese cray pot to prevent spillage

The design of conventional iron pots and pans is based on overseas pots and pans, which are popular, but many have a linear design that makes them difficult to use for tasks such as mixing oil or removing food with a ladle, spatula or scoop.

Therefore, we adopted a rounded shape at the bottom, inspired by the silhouette of Japanese iron pots, which have been used in Japan since ancient times. Oitomi's design themes of "和洋折衷(Japanese and Western styles blended together)" and "温故知新(Learning from the past, discovering new things)" are used.

Designed to prevent spillage
Inspired by the shape of Japanese clay pot, the lid has been ingeniously designed to prevent spilling. The lid has a protrusion on the back that allows steam to fall into the pot in the form of water droplets, making it suitable for cooking without water.

The secret of the iron lid
Steam drips from the protrusions on the back of the lid in the form of water droplets.
The weight of the iron lid itself also prevents the lid from lifting. The steam holes prevent spillage.
