Take your Japanese cooking to the next level with this made-in-Japan Otoshibuta drop lid! 

Otoshibuta is a drop lid that is essential when making stewed and braised Japanese foods (nimono) like nikujaga, simmered kabocha and kakuni. To use, place directly over the food inside the pot when cooking. This convection effect helps food to cook evenly, prevents broth from evaporating and thus improves the flavor and texture of the finished dish. 

Made in Japan.

What We Love About It:

  • Adjustable so can fit inside pots with an inner radius of 14-23 cm (5.7 x 9 inches)
  • To adjust, turn left to expand, and right to contract
  • Stainless steel so won’t absorb smells or tastes of food
  • Also can be used as a steamer tray. (Just place inside a pot on top of a heat resistant plate/bowl to elevate it)
  • Lift easily using the ring in the center. 

Details & Care:

  • Material: Stainless Steel
  • Size: 23 x 23 cm (Adjustable)
  • Weight: 200 grams
  • Made in Tsubame-Sanjo, Japan’s center of metal craftsmanship.
  • Dishwasher safe
