While inheriting the tradition and techniques of Iga ware, we manufacture and sell various tools for daily life, mainly clay pots. Cleansui’s built-in water purifier was also installed at the antenna shop “Tokyo store igamono”, and cleansui’s purified water was used in the development of recipes made with seasonal ingredients in earthen pots, as well as in earthen pot cooking classes held regularly. We are here. In this project, we focused on “water”, which has not been much conscious of in the daily cooking scene, and we are making easy cooking recipes “bacon tomato soup & steamed vegetables two-step use” and ”

Regarding the relationship between pots and water, Isako Hase of “Haseen” said, “Water is so familiar with our daily lives that I haven’t been very conscious of it until now, but when I use purified water at the store, I can feel it at home. I began to worry about using tap water.The way the rice cooks is different between purified water and tap water, and I realized that water has a big impact on cooking.My awareness of water has changed.” I talk. Kenji Takemura, the nabe coordinator, said, “Nabemono is basically boiled ingredients in dashi stock. I used a lot of purified water for the menu I’m introducing this time. Water is so familiar in our daily lives, but we can’t cook without it.Water is important for clay pots and
cooking.It’s one of the ingredients.” .

Five Star Rice Meister Toyozo Nishijima: “Tell me, Doctor of Rice!” [Image 3
New rice season. Cooking rice is as simple as it is profound. Mr. Toyozo Nishijima, a five-star rice meister who cooperated and supervised the development of Cleansui JP407-R (for rice) for Japanese cuisine. He also appeared as a special lecturer “Kome-Dr.” in Kurinsui’s WEB JOURNAL series “Tell me about Dr. Mizu!”
■ “Tell me, Dr. Mizu!” Related article
We also asked Mr. Nishijima about the difference in how the rice is cooked depending on the water used.
Q: Is there a difference in how the rice is cooked depending on the amount of water used?
A: There are two types of water: hard water and soft water. Hard water has a heavy taste and some people feel bitterness, but soft water is characterized by a gentle taste and smoothness down the throat. When rice is cooked in hard water, the minerals contained in it adhere to the surface of the rice grains, which seems to inhibit water absorption, and as a result, the cooked rice feels dull and dry. However, if the rice is cooked in soft water, it will be plump and shiny, and the rice will be sticky even though it has a grainy texture, which is said to be the taste of the Japanese people. In addition, when cooked with the Cleansui Washoku series rice pot-type water purifier, water easily permeates to the core of the rice, so the rice is soft and sticky, the rice grains are evenly swollen, and the rice looks white.
Q: Please tell me how to sharpen and cook rice.
A: Transfer the rice to a plastic bag with a zipper and store it in the vegetable compartment of the refrigerator.
Add cold purified water to the cold rice, stir to float the garbage, and then throw it away immediately. Use chilled purified water for cooking. The colder the water, the stronger the stickiness and sweetness tend to come out when cooking.
There is also a way to loosen the rice to decide the deliciousness of the rice. As soon as the steaming is over, open the lid and loosen the sticky rice grains by cutting them crisply while blowing off the excess steam. This effort will change the texture and taste
considerably over time.
