Slow coffee is more than just a way of making your morning brew, it’s part of a whole “take things more slowly” lifestyle. The Kinto Slow Coffee Style Carafe Set makes the process even more appealing with its large rounded glass carafe, perfectly fitted stainless steel filter and a holder to keep the used filter upright until ready to clean (after you’ve had your first cup of coffee, of course).
Kinto was originally founded more than 40 years ago to bring fine porcelain and ceramics to Japan. As of 2009, Kinto has shifted more toward the export of fine Japanese tablewares to the rest of the world. The designs of Kinto teapots, coffee pots and other kitchenware are continually fresh and unique, while maintaining the Japanese sensibility of conscientiousness and usefulness.

A two-way tea-leaf compartment – Brew and Filter – allows you to choose how long to brew your tea, preventing the bitter taste of over-brewing by placing the mug upside down as well as to filter out chunk leaves, rose buds. Such special design makes it easy to add tea right into the compartment without lump in tea.
Great for coffee drinkers but ideally designed for tea drinkers, the Pào Thermo Mug allows you to enjoy your favourite loose-leaf tea on the run. Beneath the ingenious locking flip-top lid, you’ll find a tea infuser: simply fill this with tea, add boiling water to your flask, replace the lid, and turn the entire thing upside down in order to brew your tea.
With an insulated double-wall construction to keep your tea hot while you enjoy it, there really is no mug better for the job!

Steaming food is one of the healthiest ways of cooking and is becoming increasingly popular around the world. It is also a common method of cooking in Chinese cuisine. Building on this the Office for Product Design has reinterpreted the classic Chinese steamer and pot for Chinese focused homeware brand JIA giving it a modern twist.
The ‘Ding Steamer’ set consists of a cooking pot with an accompanying cedar wood steamer basket. This steamer set differs from most in that it has a terracotta base, a material ideally suited to steam cooking as it absorbs and retains excess moisture, thus stopping the food from becoming soggy. The pot itself is made from glazed fireproof ceramic which is highly resilient and can be placed directly on top of a heat source or used separately for oven cooking.
The steamer set complement the other pieces in the series, the cast iron ‘Ding Casserole’ and accompanying bone china ‘Ding Bowls’.
