A simple and warm rice bin made by the long-established store of paulownia box, Masuda paulownia box store. It becomes one of the stylish interiors even if it is placed where it can be seen without being hidden. Due to the nature of the material, it has high insect repellent effect and can be stacked with each size. The four-sided lid has good airtightness, and it is difficult to remove the lid even if it is knocked down. You can also check the amount inside from the acrylic part of the lid, so you can know when to buy. When storing not only white rice, but also other grains such as brown rice and five-grain rice, you can store them in the same place by stacking rice bins according to the amount on the lid. Stacking 1kg + 3kg will result in the same height as 5kg. Due to the high humidity control of paulownia, it is also suitable for storing dry matter. ● How to use When adding rice, remove it from the bag and use it as it is. Do not add it, and add new rice after all the contents are gone. The attached kite has a built-in magnet to prevent it from being buried in the rice, and use it by attaching it to the back of the lid. The groove on the back of the lid is for hooking it to the green of the main body without replacing the lid on the floor when replacing rice. ● Material: Paulownia Lid: paulownia (four-sided lid) + acrylic Toride: Black Cherry 枡 (one size): paulownia ● Size Rice bin 3kg: w215mm × d215mm × h163mm ● How to care When replacing the rice when the contents are empty, turn the main body upside down before adding new rice, remove the remaining residue of the rice and wipe gently with a dry wipe. In order to prevent excessive accumulation of moisture in the paulownia, the moisture absorbed by the paulownia can be released once if the contents are empty at the turn of the season, etc., and dried in a well-ventilated place for about half a day. ● Notes on use In addition to rice, this product can store dried food, bread, and coffee beans, but if you add something that smells strong, it may move to paulownia. If powder is added directly, the wood may be clogged with powder, hindering humidity control, and the lid may become clogged, making it difficult to close. It is recommended to store it in a bag. * This product does not extend the expiration date of rice. It is a product to keep the taste delicious by the characteristics of paulownia. ● Characteristics of paulownia Paulownia wood has a very small shrinkage rate, so it can be refined with little deviation or cracking in its design, and it has little dimensional change. Because there is little madness in the design, you can make a box without any gaps. Porous, bubble-like independent tissue is densely packed, and when it is humid, it absorbs moisture, and when it dries, it exhales moisture and adjusts the humidity to breathe. In addition, it contains ingredients such as tannin, paulonin, and sesamin, which suppress the generation of insects and mold. Because it contains a lot of antiseptic tannins, paulownia is hard to rot and can be used for a long time. Paulownia is the lightest wood in Japan. Porous, bubble-like independent tissue is densely packed, hardly affected by outside air, and excellent in heat retention and heat insulation. In hot and humid Japan, paulownia has long been used as a chest for putting on kimono and gift boxes. One of the attractions is that the grain is beautiful and you can enjoy the secular change just like leather products when used carefully. ● What is kirihaco? Masuda Tung Hakoten has been manufacturing paulownia boxes for 90 years in Koga City, Fukuoka Prefecture. We are researching every day so that you can select the type of paulownia and how to assemble it according to the purpose of the box. We have developed and proposed original processing methods to make beautiful boxes and attractive boxes. As part of the manufacturing process, the concept of “paulownia box for daily life” was adopted, and product development was carried out with the owner of the Fukuoka lifestyle tool store as the [kirihaco project].
