Japanese Cooking Utensil Pull-Out Can (Nuki Kan)


There is so many of cool cooking utensils in Japan.
I have been impressed so many times by those Japanese cooking utensils, when I worked in Japanese restaurant.
This one was the first and one of most impressed cooking utensil for me.
It is a simple but it works well.
It looks like a square stainless steel can, but it has double layered and outside layer is just regular can, but the inner layer can pull out like the second picture, so we can use it for liquid going to be harder later on like jelly.



Here is more cooking utensils (most likely Japanese chef knives)
