The first Aluminum cast pot was made in Hiroshima in 1953. During that time people were switching their cooking systems to gas stoves. It was also a time when families got smaller with more people moving to cities and people didn’t necessary live with their entire families. Because of this, smaller cooking areas and tools became more normal. With this different way of cooking they wanted to invent a new style of cooking with new technology and this aluminum pot was born.
"MUSUI NABE" or “Waterless Pot” is the first cast aluminum pot from Japan that could cook with only the moisture that is already in the food itself, except for completely dry goods, this pot can cook just about everything and cook with limited maintance. The MUSUI NABE, created a style of cooking fast and with good results in mind, and performs the eight actions of boiling, cooking, steaming, poaching, grilling, frying, stir frying, and deep frying. Even cakes, pies, muffins, etc can be cooked inside this aluminum pot.
Since its release, it has been the best selling thick cast aluminum pot, and many families have been passing it down for generations. In 2018, two new series called “KING” and “HAL” have been released under the brand. With proper care, this pot will last long and feed you and your family for years to come and be passed on to future generations as well.
Because of the design of the pot and the way that it so tightly cooks, food is cooked well and quickly without having water to slow down the process. And because it is not necessary to use water, you can keep the nutrition in vegetables and foods because it isn’t boiled out in the water. Also, because of the way that this is heated, you can turn off the gas or electricity and in the end you are saving energy.
