Premium Korean Cast Iron Cookware
[Moosse] Premium Cast Iron Gamasot
Today, we are excited to introduce Moosse!
Think premium-quality cast iron cookware designed for Korean cuisine.
Moosse is a Korean company with 46+ years of experience in metal crafting expertise. Over the years, they have developed state-of-the-art technology for high precision, ultra-thin casting for iron.
It’s actually one of a few foundries in the world that has this capability.
Ultra-thin wall casting translates to cast-iron cookware that is much lighter than traditional cast iron (30% less weight) - without comprising on heat retention or durability!
Furthermore, no seasoning is required.
Moosse applies a durable, multi-layer coating on both the interior and exterior of each cast-iron piece - preventing foods from sticking to it and protecting it from acidic foods and rusting.
Moosse's Cast Iron Cooking Ware will heat on all types of stovetops: gas stove, ceramic cooktop, electric, coil and even induction.
They can also be cooked in the oven - safe up to 500°F.
Today, we present Moosse's Signature Gamasot Pots:
First, what is a Gamasot (가마솥)?
Gamasots are large heavy, iron cauldrons that were used to cook rice, soups and stews in Ancient Korea (since the Goguryeo Dynasty).
A small fire was lit under the cauldron - building-up an intense heat and large amounts of pressure in the pot. Any ingredients placed inside would cook evenly, imparting a deep and rich flavor.
The gamasot has become an iconic piece of Korean cooking culture that evokes memories of "Old Korea" to many in the older generation.
In modern times, the gamasot has become smaller to match the shrinking family size and kitchen.
Today, we present 3 different sizes for the modern kitchen:
- Gamasot 16cm (Small): Mini-sized gamasot for 1-person serving
- Gamasot 17cm (Medium): For cooking 2-3 person servings (recommend for couples, newlyweds or family of 3)
- Gamasot 19cm (Large): For cooking 4-5 person servings (recommended for the whole family)
If you're having trouble deciding - we recommend the 19cm size. It's big enough to cook ANY dish (including rice, soups, braised dishes or fried foods).
Further details on each Gamasot are listed in the product page.
So what should I cook in this Gamasot?
Traditionally, it's been used to cook rice.
The gamasot cooks rice amazingly well - due to the high pressure that builds up in the pot.
However, it can also be used for cooking Korean stews or soups like Doenjang Jjigae, Kimchi Jjigae, etc.
Or use it to bring out deep flavor in dishes like curry, rice porridge (jook), braised ribs or even for frying foods.
The lid on the Gamasot is also specially designed.
The ridge on the outer perimeter will help to prevent liquid from overflowing.
This is a lifesaver when cooking rice in a pot - no more of the gooey spillover.
It's also functions as a self-basting lid.
The circular ridges catch the steam as it builds in the pot. Then the steam condenses into water droplets along the lid, and drips back onto the cooking food.
This minimizes moisture loss - meaning your food stays juicy as it cooks!
With proper care, Moosse Gamasot will last a lifetime - it’s made from premium-quality iron from POSCO (South Korea’s leading iron & steel producer).
Rest assured, the cast-iron cookware contain NO arsenic, lead, quicksilver, antimony, cadmium PTFE, PFOA, PFPA or other environmental hormones.
