Noda Horo : All Purpose All-time favourite enamel kitchen goods
My Noda Horo Collection (so far).
This is my favourite new book by Mrs Noda who married Mr Noda of "NODA HORO" the company who's been producing excellent enamel kitchen goods for over 70 years in Japan.
"Horo" (=enamel) kitchen goods would have been seen a lot in anyone's kitchen in my grandmother's time in Japan but when the modern technology made its appearance, people started to replace them to plastics and other things. Good on NODA HORO to have kept making them to this day, people are starting to realise the goodnesses of horo; long lasting, doesn't produce environmental toxins, keeps food fresh for long and away from germs, strong for salt and acid (good for long-term keeping eg jams and pickles), heat efficient and so on! But the best thing I'd say is that you can heat the container directly on the stove after taking it out from the fridge straight away! (I've ordered this for stocking/reheating dashi. would be good for soups too.)
Their "White Series" is just great!
