Persistence is the key to success, and brothers Kuni and Tomo Hijikata had endless amounts to help lead them on a three-year journey to create a cast-iron cooking set they would be proud to own. After 10,000 attempts, the Hikijata brothers crafted the highly versatile Vermicular Cast-Iron Cooking System.
The enameled Musui pot can help you cook a feast fit for a king, providing you with options to braise, roast, sear, stew, and more. It has a floating lid to let steam out and self-baste, double handles, and ring-shaped ribs at the bottom to make sure your food isn’t overheated. To go along with the Musui pot is the Kamado induction cooker, which is inspired by Japanese seminal stoves of the past. The Kamado provides even heating at the base and the sides of the pot for a perfectly cooked meal. Once a Japan-exclusive, this cast-iron cooking system is now available in America. You can pick up the Musui and Kamado together for $670.
