The perfect soy sauce pot

Blog-soy sauce pot.jpg (1 of 1) Whenever I make the Chinese rice porridge congee, I bring out my white ceramic soy sauce pot for garnishing the rice. I just used it the other day, in fact. I’m always struck by how perfectly this one works. Designed by Masahiro Mori in 1958, it is a classic. You control the flow by closing the hole on the lid with your finger as you pour. 

Available from Tortoise General Store in Venice, the G-Soy Sauce Pot is $20, and comes in either white, black or celadon green.

For a congee recipe, see the story I wrote in May called “Cooking Up a Craving for Congee”.

Tortoise General Store, 1208 Abbot Kinney Drive, Venice; (310) 314-8448; www.tortoisegeneralstore.com.
