About the product

[The 'KOINU' Brand has been involved in cooking utensils for professionals]
Honma Co., Ltd. has been producing the professional kitchen product brand 'KOINU' for 70 years since its establishment. Considering the opinions of professionals, the company has created "good tools" that can be recommended with confidence, with meticulous attention to detail and ingenuity throughout.

[Designed with thorough attention to comfort: Flat edge]
The 'KOINU' bowl series has a flat edge. The edges of bowls and colander are usually 'rolled', but the 'KOINU' Series is not rolled, making it easier to wash and more hygienic as water and debris are less likely to accumulate.

Not only is it hygienic. The wide rim also makes it easy to hold with one hand. You will find it comfortable to use, for example, when stirring eggs or beating cream.

The benefit of the flat edge is that you can pour delicately without overhanging the sides, and the bowl has a sharp, liquid-crisp spout. This reliable spout prevents dripping, even with viscous liquids such as eggs.

[Designed with thorough attention to comfort: Electropolished]
Look inside the bowls and you will see shiny surfaces. This is because it is further finished by electrolytic polishing after hairline polishing. With conventional bowls, when whipping cream, the whipper and bowl rub against each other, and a tiny amount of stainless steel peels off, discolouring the cream. Electropolishing has been applied to smooth the surface to prevent such discolouration. The press-worked scale also makes it convenient to prepare ingredients. If strict measuring is not required for a dish, you don't even need to use a measuring cup!

[Designed with thorough attention to comfort: Heights of bowls and mesh bowls]
There is a calculated "height difference" between the bowl and the mesh bowl, creating a gap when stacked on top of each other. This makes it easy to insert a finger into the bowl and lift it up quickly, even when stacked on top of each other. Furthermore, thanks to this difference in height, food that floats easily in water will not run out with the water, even when placed in running water. Cooks will love this freedom from hassle.

The tray, which fits perfectly into bowls and mesh bowls, is simple but versatile. This also works well as a lid to keep food from running out when draining, shaking the colander or tilting the bowl. It can also be used to catch water in mesh bowls after lifting them out of the water or as a lid for bowls that can be stored in the fridge as they are.

[Designed with thorough attention to comfort: Mesh bowl made of wire]
Mesh bowls made of woven wire. The main difference between this and a perforated colander (the type with holes) is that it is also very watertight. It catches even small items such as rice and drains it comfortably.

The mesh bowls were made possible thanks to the cooperation of Minex Metal Co., Ltd., also located in Tsubame-Sanjo. Minex Metal is a manufacturer specializing in producing metalwork, especially for colanders and other tinsel and wire.

The mesh bowl starts out flat. From a single large piece of mesh material rolled into a roll, it is individually die-cut. To achieve the product's unparalleled shape and durability, many prototypes had to be repeated. For example, it was technically difficult to shape a sturdy mesh with a thick wire diameter into a deep bowl shape like this one. We were able to make it after many meetings and persistent trial and error.

[Outstanding durability]
"Colanders", made of stainless steel, seem sturdy, but they are actually surprisingly fragile tools. Have you ever experienced the netting tearing, warping, and legs coming off...?

The mesh bowls of the 'KOINU' are made of wire with a wire diameter of 0.57 mm, which is thicker than that of ordinary colanders, for extraordinary strength. The professional specification of this product, which is resistant to tearing and deformation, means that it can be used for many years, even if it is used hard every day.

We actually experimented with placing weights on it. The mesh bowl of the 'KOINU' was not affected even when a weight of more than 8.5 kg was placed on it. It has excellent durability. Because of its durability, it can be washed with hard objects such as brushes, so you can use it without caring about small food particles getting entangled.

[Cooking utensils that meet the expectations of the user and do not betray them]
There are many tools in the world that fulfil the function of bowls and colanders, such as storing and draining water. However, the tools of the 'KOINU' have been developed with the thorough aim of "meeting the expectations of the user and not betraying them. The functionality we have described so far may not even be noticed as the tools are used more and more. This is because "truly good tools" become an extension of the user's body and act like a familiar partner. This may lead to a little 'comfort' in daily life.

Honma Co., Ltd., located in Tsubame-Sanjo in Niigata Prefecture, one of Japan's largest metalworking towns. For 70 years since its establishment, the company has produced a wide range of professional products, mainly for restaurants, catering services and food factories, under the well-known 'KOINU' brand of professional kitchen products. Honma Co., Ltd. has an integrated manufacturing environment where products are made in-house, from product planning and the production of moulds to final finishing and even some production machinery.

Bowls and trays start from a single stainless steel disc. Products with flat edges are not common because they are technically difficult to make. When this shape is pressed, metal 'wrinkles' inevitably form. Honma fine-tuned the shape and processing method to prevent wrinkles from forming, and through repeated prototyping we were able to achieve this. After being pressed into a rough shape, the bowl is polished as a whole, the spout is pressed, the scale is pressed, and the finish is polished.

The mesh bowls were made possible thanks to the cooperation of Minex Metal Co., Ltd., also located in Tsubame-Sanjo.

Even though it is mass-produced, each process is carried out by craftspeople who always check the quality of each product one by one with their strict eyes. Human eyes also carry out the final inspection. Any discrepancies are corrected before being sent out into the world. Thanks to this thorough quality control system, the 'KOINU' has earned the trust of professionals.

Unlike products for the general household, products for professional use are made to specialise in specific functions, such as "this is the best for draining" or "this is the best for durability", rather than "this one can do everything".

Honma Co., Ltd., which has been working with products for professionals for many years, has many technologies for creating unique products. We want to deliver such thorough quality to ordinary households in the future.
