Kaico Short Pot

Regular price $130 Unit price  per 

Durable and thermal efficient, this short pot is made of enamel coated steel so you can quickly cook its contents. The wood handle on the lid means your hands are safe when you go to grab it from the stove. Enamel coating prevents rust and is effective at evenly distributing heat, however it does requires special care - please read below under "Care Instructions" for more details!

Enamel coating is a multi-step process that requires great skill and care. Due to the organic nature of the material, each pot will have some variation and uneven enamel coating in certain parts. This reveals the wonderful character of each piece and does not affect the integrity of the product.

Kaico's award-wining line up of pots and kettles was created by the Japanese designer Makoto Koizumi. This milk pan is made in Mie prefecture, Japan.


8” W x 9" D x 4.5” H
Holds 88 fl oz or 11 cups

White enamel coated steel (pot), maple wood (handle)

Care Instructions:
Hand-wash only with non-abrasive sponge.
Dry immediately and thoroughly.
Enamel is powered glass that is fired in a kiln to create shiny smooth surfaces that help conduct heat efficiently and also prevents rusting. Because the external material is glass, this pot is prone to chipping if you bang on surfaces. Once enamel chips, it will begin to reveal the steel underneath and rust can develop underneath. Chipped enamel is still safe to use, and rust is not harmful to health. If you see chips, make sure that you dry thoroughly after use and coat oil over the chipped areas to prevent rust.
