There's something satisfying about having a specific tool for every need. For example, do you ever tire of busting out your nice ceramic tokkuri (carafe) only to have to lower it into scalding hot water? How about lifting it out of the water by its tiny neck with two little fingers, counting down from five to see if you can make it to the counter before burning your fingers? Wiping up the counter afterwards from your wet carafe? You get the idea.
Tampo are used in restaurants, sake bars, and serious kitchens for warming sake. Perfect for entertaining, simply fill up your sake to the desired level and let the tampo rest in your hot water. With a handle that hooks handily onto the side of your water bath, you can conveniently grab this quickly when your sake is ready without fear of getting too close to the heat.
We use this at our bar for sake and maewari shochu (blended and aged shochu and water).
