Copper cookware is a favorite of professionals. The heat conductivity of pure copper is said to be roughly five times higher than that of iron, allowing the food to heat evenly, resulting in delicious dishes. Why not make use of this high thermal conductivity in your cooking and try out some stylish recipes? You will be able to beautifully cook, not only meat, but also pancakes and a wide variety of other sweets.
Placing this plate under cookware allows its heat to be transferred evenly to the entire bottom surface, helping make cooked rice and stewed dishes even more tasty, as well as preventing them from burning. Please take this opportunity to try it out!

The Attraction of Copper
Copper is a material that has been used by humans since ancient times. It is said to be the first metal used by humans, having been discovered by Neolithic man in 8,000 BCE. Copper is considered an “essential trace element” and plays important roles in making blood in the body, maintaining healthy bones and blood vessels, and helping the brain function.
The body normally needs about 2 mg of copper per day, which can be naturally supplemented through a well-balanced diet.
One of the characteristics of copper products is that they are more resistant to rust than iron or aluminum products. Given their resistance to rust, they can easily be used outdoors.
Although some people think that verdigris and blue patina are poisonous, this is a complete misunderstanding.
In August 1984, the Ministry of Health and Welfare (today the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare) admitted that the verdigris poisoning theory was incorrect.

Product Handling and Care
After use, pour hot water on the plate before it cools down. Wipe it with a tightly wrung paper towel and let it dry. When storing, oil the plate and wrap it in newspaper.
If verdigris (green copper rust) appears, rub it off with a cloth moistened using a solution of (household use) vinegar, mixed with an equal amount of salt. Then wash it with dishwashing detergent, rinse well, and fully wipe it dry.
