The Kuru-Kuru Nabe is the perfect piece of cookware for the multitasking cook, be it in a busy restaurant or casual home kitchen. Touted as a self-stirring pot, it does just that in a safe and non-mechanical way, unlike similar creations that claimed the same action. The Kuru-Kuru Nabe achieves the seemingly impossible by way of a unique inner mold that creates a whirlpool as the water heats up to a boil.
Although the Kuru-Kuru Nabe might be a surprising product, the mastermind behind it happens to be even more surprising. Japanese dentist Hideki Watanabe conceived the idea, which will allow the water to get hotter faster while compacting the resulting foam so it is less likely to boil over. It offers a great albeit basic benefit.
