Even after using the enamel teapot, cute teapot can be a stylish interior item in your kitchen or dining room. The enamel teapot is produced with pursuit of design and usability. Pottle of Noda Horo is a new standard of teapot or kettle.
Scandinavian-like design, but Pottle is a product of Japan

The enamel teapot resembles the pot of “Antti Nurmesniemi.” However, Pottle is made in Japan.

3 recommended points of Pottle of Noda Horo
Cute design and colors
In our store, Pottle of Noda Horo has 4 colors; orange, white, blue and yellow. All colors can be great accent in your kitchen. Designer thought “kettle is a daily-use item. It is always in kitchen. So, I would like our customers to choose their favorite colors.”
It is hard to decide the one from these cute colors. Therefore, we would like to introduce some points for choosing colors of the enamel teapot later.
Simple and natural design of Pottle fit everyone. Children, an old lady, a stylish businessman, or an elegant woman… The enamel teapot fit everyone. This is a great attractive point of this Pottle.
Amazing usability of the enamel teapot
The attractive point of Pottle of Noda Horo is not only the design and colors!
Kettle is a daily-use item. Therefore, it should have great usability.
First, the enamel pot can be used over open flame and IH cooking heater (100V / 200 V.) Long-seller items seldom correspond to IH cooking heater.
Next, the superb size of Pottle. The enamel teapot pf Noda Horo can contain 1.5L. It is smaller than other kettles. However, even if you use other 2 burners of your gas cooker, you can boil water with the enamel teapot. Also, when you do not use Pottle, you can put it on kitchen counter or a corner of the dining table.
Moreover, the knob of the lid is made of natural wood, not enamelware. So, it is hard to get hot when you boil hot water.
With the big handle, you can easily hold it with kitchen mitten. The handle is not too thin, nor too big. (When you boil hot water, the handle become very hot. Please use your favorite kitchen mitten.)
This enamel teapot has big mouth. So, it is easy to fill water and wash the inside of the Pottle.
In addition, the backside of the lid has a projected point. This point avoids the lid to fall when you pour hot water. You may not concern about such a small point. But it is very dangerous if the lid will fall when you pour hot water. Small, but necessary point for teapot.
Enamelware is hard to get transferred smell, and easy to care
As a material for kettle, enamelware is recommended at the point of smell transfer. Enamelware is hard to get transferred smell.
You will see the difference when you make tea with Pottle. When you make a good smell tea, stainless or aluminum kettle easily get stain or smell of the tea. Compared to this, enamelware is coated by glassy glaze. So, you can avoid the transfer of smell by cleaning Pottle after using it.
If you have never used enamelware before, you may wonder that “it is hard to care enamelware.” However, enamelware is not so hard material to use.
After boiling water, just dry the pot well. When you make tea with the enamel teapot, wash the teapot with soft sponge with detergent. Then, dry the teapot well. That’s all!
If the water remains in the teapot, it may cause rust. The point is dry the teapot well after using.

What is Noda Horo?
Noda Horo is an enamelware maker in Koto ward in Tokyo. It has more than 80 years’ history. The enamelware we introduce are made by craftsmen in the factory in Tochigi prefecture.
Now, Noda Horo is famous for its kitchenware such as baking dishes or stockers. Originally, Noda Horo produces not only kitchenware, but also physical and chemical acid-resistant enamel.
Enamelware is a material that metal (iron or aluminum) is enameled with glassy glaze in high-temperature. The surface of the enamelware is glassy. Therefore, enamelware avoids the growth of various gems or chemical change. So, enamelware is used in hospitals or laboratories.
As a kitchenware, enamelware does not change the taste of food. Also, it is hygiene. Enamelware is hard to get transferred smell. So, it is suitable for store strongly smelly food or strong color food.
Glassy glaze is strong against acid or salt. Great item for storing pickles or jam.
The core material of enamelware is metal. So, enamelware has high thermal conductivity. It can keep temperature. Enamelware cannot be used in microwave oven. But you can use enamelware over open fire and in oven.
Strong impact may damage the glassy surface. But with caution against impact, you can use the enamelware for a long time.
How to use enamelware?
A staff of Noda Horo told us the well use of enamelware. He said, “objects have strong and weak points like every human has. The standard of choosing the objects differ from person to person. But if a person gets an object, we, as a maker, would like you to use it for a long time. Therefore, we would like to introduce well use of enamelware for our customers.”
If you have any concern or questions about using enamelware, please see the followings.
The characteristics of Pottle from Noda Horo
Enamelware have some places where glassy glaze is not fully covered. Those places are spout, backside of lid or edges.
Also, strong impact or dropping may cause the appearance of iron from the damage of glassy surface.
The places may cause rusting when you remain the water, acid, or salt on that places.
* In the Pottle case, the mouth of spout is the weak place against rusting.
Iron rusting is harmless to human body. So, you can use the enamel teapot at ease by any chance the teapot gets rusted. However, to prevent rust, please dry well the enamel teapot after using.
How to keep the enamel teapot away from rust?
If you use the enamelware well, you can use it for a long time. When a part of the enamelware get damage, it may cause rust. However, you can keep the enamelware away from rust with some tips.
In fact, I (am a buyer of Japan Design Store) have an experience that my 20-years-old enamel teapot of Noda Horo get rusted. Even we handle it with care, we often do “what we should not do” without notice.
So, let me introduce some ways we can prevent from rust as much as possible.
The point is “do not keep the water in the Pottle for a long time, and dry the enamel teapot well after using.”
Here, we introduce some Not Good use.
×NG× Add water and warm the teapot again after boiling some water
If you add water one after another, calcium or magnesium adhere and store up inside the enamelware. Usually, if you dry the enamel teapot well, it is no problem. However, if water touch again to stored up calcium or magnesium, and if the water includes some iron, it becomes iron hydroxide. Consequently, it may be covered with red rust.
×NG× Soak the enamel teapot into water for a long time
When you boil water with the enamel teapot and some hot water remain, do not leave the water in the enamel teapot for a long time. If possible, please use the hot water all at once.
Also, when you make tea with the Pottle, do not leave tea bags in the enamel teapot. Please move the tea into pitcher, or drink all at once.
Let me repeat this important point. “Do not keep the water in the Pottle for a long time, and dry the enamel teapot well after using.” (That is also true for the enamel kettle Amukettle)
It does not mean that once or twice NG use make rust. However, if you repeat them for years, the damage of the enamel teapot will be stored up.
By any chance the enamel teapot gets rusted…
Rust is an object generated when an object in water is oxidized. According to the reference by makers or medicals, “a little amount of rust generated in house are harmless to human body.” Nevertheless, the hot water with rust taste is not tasty. We would like to avoid it.
By any chance the enamel teapots get rusted, please try the following method. A staff of Noda Horo told us.
“If the enamelware gets rusted, please rub the rusted place with the rubber rust remover. After removing, spread cooking oil to prevent rust.”
* Please note that the rubber rust remover is effective to the iron place such as the edge of the enamelware. However, the glassy place may be damaged by rubbing. Please avoid using the rubber rust remover to the glassy glazed enamelware.
This is stylish pot Pottle of Noda Horo. Now, the enamel teapots are indispensable to Japanese kitchenware world.
As a small kettle, or pot for making tea, this enamel teapot is very useful item.
Here are some points for choosing colors.
