How to Care for Japanese Kitchen Utensils

How to Care for Japanese Kitchen Utensils

by Akiko Hino




There are so many types of kitchen tools and utensils such as wooden cutting board, iron pan, aluminum pot, carbon steel knife and stainless steel kitchen shears. However, almost all people don't take care of them correctly and ruin them easily.

The author puts it in this book: "Taking care of tools" is sometimes understood to mean "keep them neat and clean." However, I have often heard the makers say, "You will spoil the charm of your well-used tool if you bring it back to brand new condition."

This book will help your kitchen utensils to continue to improve and become better than when you first used them. By following easy-to-understand instructions with images sorted by categories you can find that the texture and character of the tool develop as we use over time.
