About pots and cooking

What kind of cooking is possible with BLISSIO?
BLISSIO can be used for various types of cooking, such as simmering, steaming, boiling, and stir-frying, boiling rice and making casseroles. A wide range of cooking can be done in a BLISSIO pot!
How is cooking with a waterless cooking pot different from cooking with a regular pot?
Waterless cooking requires a pot that can cook with only the water contained in the food itself (excluding dried food) in an airtight pot. A shorter heating time and less heat is required in this process.
What are the differences between BLISSIO and other waterless cooking pots?
Compared to casting or metal waterless cooking pots, ceramic earthen pots are lightweight and easy-to-handle. The great attractiveness of BLISSIO is that it is a ceramic pot with high heat storage properties, which can be used for cooking using the remaining heat.
With BLISSIO’s airtight properties been improved through our company’s original special processing, BLISSIO is an earthen pot that can be used for advanced waterless cooking.
