Wooden Pot Lid

An otoshibuta (or “drop lid” in Japanese) is a flat wooden lid commonly used in Japanese cooking. Made from natural, untreated spruce wood, it locks in moisture to infuse the dish with intense flavors. This process ensures that the heat is evenly distributed and reduces stress on the food, keeping fragile ingredients like potatoes and vegetables in their original shape. Perfect for everyday cooking or boiling starchy vegetables, this smart lid is an excellent addition to our Iwachu Cast Iron Pot or Sukiyaki Pot.

Materials: Spruce
Dimensions: Diameter: 10”
Care: Soak in water before each use to avoid absorbing the dish’s aroma. Wash with water and a mild soap and dry immediately after use.
