We’re thrilled for you to begin cooking with the Musui. We've compiled helpful cooking and cleaning tips below, so you can enjoy using your Musui for years to come.
Here are some important things to keep in mind when using the Musui:
Reference the Care Instructions on page 21 of the enclosed cookbook for more information.
Master the three heat settings (Medium, Low, and Very Low) to maximize cooking performance.
The Musui's ridged base, three layers of enamel coating, and precision seal work as one to create the perfect balance of heat conduction, radiant heat, and steam convection—allowing you to cook flavorful, delicious meals without the use of high heat.
Before you start cooking, simply boil some water in your Musui and see how steam escapes from it to determine your cooktop's corresponding heat setting.
Reference the Heating Guide on page 184 of the enclosed cookbook for more information.
Do not use the Musui with high heat or preheat it while empty over medium heat for more than 7 minutes.
This may cause permanent damage to the enamel coating. If you heat an empty Musui over high heat by mistake, never add water to cool it. Instead, wait for it to cool to room temperature on its own.
The Musui is versatile, allowing you to explore a variety of cooking techniques, from searing and deep-frying, to slow cooking and oven baking. Below are some cooking techniques and tips that are unique to the Musui.
Steam and roast vegetables in tandem for tender insides and caramelized outer textures.
Musui "waterless" cooking
Heating ingredients gradually allows the precision seal to lock in juices and flavors—no need to add water or broth.
Braise & stew
Build flavors by first searing meat directly within the pot, then cooking low and slow.
Reference the back of each tab within the enclosed cookbook to learn the basic rules of the Musui cooking techniques.
To extend the Musui's capabilities, pair it with the Kamado induction stove, which provides greater temperature control for precision-cooking techniques, like sous-vide. Visit the Musui–Kamado Design page to learn more.
We recommend washing with mild dish soap and a soft sponge. Never scrub with force or with abrasive cleaners to avoid damaging the enamel coating.
Always dry the pot immediately after washing to prevent the rims from rusting. In the event that rust appears, you can easily remove it by using mild dish soap or baking soda on the affected area.
Reference the Care Instructions on pages 24 of the enclosed cookbook for more information. For step-by-step instructions on specific cleaning methods, like removing rust, visit our Help Center.
