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.
[2 design points to prevent spillage of contents]
The "Food Carrier Mini" is a household size of commercial food carrier, which can store food in the fridge, warm it up and carry it around in just one item. This product has a silicon rubber gasket on the lid to seal it and prevent spills, even when filled with soup. In addition, the silicon rubber gasket is firmly fitted into the groove of the lid, so there is no need to worry about the contents coming off unexpectedly and leaking.
Three clasps were used to seal the lid further when it is closed to ensure that the contents inside do not leak. It is not only soup that these clasps can seal, but also odours that are a problem when the fridge is opened. For example, have you ever had the experience of leaving a strong-smelling dish in the fridge, only to find that the whole fridge smells of it the next day? The "Food Carrier Mini" has a strong airtight seal that prevents such odours from leaking.
[Knob for easy lid opening]
When hot soup or other food is placed in the container, the air pressure changes over time, making it difficult to remove the lid. By pressing the knob, outside air enters the container, and the pressure difference is eliminated, making it easy to remove the lid. The knob also prevents you from forcibly trying to open the lid by force and spilling the contents inside.
[Compatible with induction and open flames.]
The "Food Carrier Mini" is made of stainless steel and can be heated on a household gas stove. In other words, you can put in the food you want to preserve, store it in the fridge as it is, and when you want to heat it up, take it out of the fridge and put it directly on the gas stove. And the great thing about this item is that it is compatible not only with gas cookers but also with induction cookers. This is a good thing because you can continue to use it even if you used to use a gas hob but moved to a new house and now have an induction hob.
Furthermore, the handle of the "Food Carrier Mini" has a '90-degree rotating handle' and a newly developed special stop fitting. This stop prevents the handle from dropping too close to the fire and stops the handle at 90 degrees, so the handle does not get hot when unloading from the hob and can be moved with peace of mind.
[Can be used for everything from food storage to warming up and transporting.]
This product is not only functional but also well-designed. The design is stylish enough to be used in the home but also provides a different dining atmosphere when placed on the dining table.
As everything from storing, warming up, and carrying to serving at the table can be completed in one container, it reduces the amount of washing up and the burden after the meal. The "Food Carrier Mini" is such an all-in-one item.
[Great for outdoor cooking]
In addition to preserving food and serving it at the dinner table, the "Food Carrier Mini" can also be used outdoors.You can prepare elaborate dishes that require time or dishes such as curry or stew that require several spices, by making them at home and then taking them out with you. The structure is leak-proof, even with soup, so there is no need to worry even when travelling by car.
The inside of the product has a scale on it so you can check how much food you have put in. This is convenient because you can weigh out the amount of soup and carry it with you, such as this much curry and stew.
[Washable and easy to clean.]
The silicon rubber gaskets on the lid of the "Food Carrier Mini" can be removed, so there is no need to worry about dirt. Each can be removed and washed, so any dirt that adheres to it can be washed away thoroughly. You can use them without worrying about hygiene.

About the maker
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.
The development of the "Food Carrier Mini" began with a chef's need. It was prompted by a professional cook who said, "When I want to share my meals with my staff, I don't have a container that they can take home with them".
The idea was to have a container that could hold a certain amount of food and be portable, which led to the creation of the "Food Carrier Mini". Thanks to meticulous engineering, a 90-degree rotating handle that stops at a position where it will not catch fire and a knob that makes it easy to open the lid even when storing hot food have been achieved.
They are also designed to be easy to carry for the average person and to look natural when served at the table, making them ideal for storing food as well as for carrying food around.
In this way, Honma Co., Ltd. is equipped with an environment that enables integrated manufacturing, from product planning to production and even some production machinery in-house, so that product development flexibly incorporates everyone's opinions.

I'm looking forward to the ease of cleaning and the high sealability. If I have a next project, it would be helpful if I could use it as a pot for cooking as it would reduce the amount of dishes to wash...Google Translated Comment Show Original Comments
