Outline

This lightweight earthenpot friendly to senior citizens was developed against the backdrop of the progress of an aging society. Since the thickness and weight had to be reduced, heat-resistance and durability were improved by changing the blending ratio of materials. Also with the skills of pot makers both lightweight and easiness of use were achieved. It was made20% lighter than conventional products without losing their original performance. It’s also energy saving as it can be used on a medium fire. The lid is heavy enough to trap moisture and keep the flavor of food. It has a sophisticated, modern design with a shape rounder than traditional earthenpots and two-tone coloring. This lightweight pot supports users daily cooking by making it easier to carry to the table put away and store.
