Beautiful Design, No Absorption
[Tackaon] Korean Ttukbaegi Pot
Ttukbaegi pots are the 'workhorse' cooking ware in a Korean kitchen.
They're used daily to cook and serve staple stews like Doenjang Jjigae or Kimchi Jjigae. When buying a Ttukbaegi, it's important to check that it is durable, retains heat and easy to clean!
Today, we introduce you to Tackaon's Ttukbaegi Pot - which meets all three. What stands out first is its beautiful design. The lid has a pointy top that mimics the lid of Korean Iron Black Cauldrons called Gamasot (가마솥) which were used in the old days to cook large batches of rice or stew.
These Ttukbaegi pots are made with Korean clay that are mixed with a special material called Petalite and fired twice at a very high temperature (1250° Celsius). This material and high-temp blazing produces a pot that can heat-up quickly without cracking. Furthermore, the material is very dense so it does not soak in any liquids when cooking. This is important as cheaper Ttukbaegi pots tend to absorb residual liquids or soap detergent and release them during the next boil - no good!
Tackaon's pots are handmade with effort and pride by local ceramic artisans. If you're looking to cook Korean meals on a regular basis, consider this premium Ttukbaegi pot.

USAGE TIPS - PLEASE READ!
1. Before first time use, fill the pot with some water - along with a few shakes of flour - and let it simmer away for 20 minutes on a low heat (this will clean and season the pot).
2. Do not heat without liquid or both in the pot.
3. Do not place a hot pot directly under cold water when washing (let the pot cool down first!)
4. Wash the pot with water and for harder stains, use the smooth-side of a dishwasher sponge.
5. Avoid storing food in the pot for long periods of time - the liquid can soak into the clay if left for long periods of time
