Pretty with a purpose. This chawanmushi cup and lid have a smooth, glossy finish. The body of the cup features a vertical orange, green, light blue and dark blue stripe pattern. This pattern is repeated on the lid, which has a knob at the center for easy lifting. Blue horizontal stripes circle the base and knob. Both pieces are made of ceramicware, and safe for the microwave and dishwasher.
Use this adorable little chawanmushi bowl to make a Japanese favorite. "Chawan mushi" (two words) refers to the traditional savory steamed Japanese egg custard, while "chawanmushi" (one word) refers to the actual lidded cup used for cooking this classic appetizer.
The generous capacity is roomy enough for containing all that silky egg, mirin, and dashi mixture, as well as your favorite combinations of chicken or seafood and very thinly sliced shiitake mushrooms, green onions, carrots.
You can also use this cute, versatile little lidded cup for hiding spare keys, and for holding candies, coins, or game pieces.
Buy two of these bowl and lid sets for enjoying Chawan Mushi with a loved one or buy multiple sets for sharing with family and friends. Buy a pair of sets and add these beautiful spoons, for a thoughtful wedding or housewarming gift. Made in Japan.
