Lightweight and
perfectly sized

Lightweight and easy to use,

BALMUDA The Pot is the perfect size

for everyday kitchen needs.

It holds enough water for three standard

cups of coffee or two large mugs.

A pour so smooth
it becomes a pleasure

Due to our tireless ergonomic research, we’ve created a pouring experience unlike any other. The handle fits snugly into your hand and the hot water flows smoothly from the nozzle, letting you direct the flow exactly where you want it to go.

From carefully made pour-over coffee to ordinary cups of tea, this pot is a beautiful and comfortable companion.

A gentle glow,
visible from every angle

Emitting a delicate glow from a tiny neon tube in the handle, the pot’s power light is a unique feature that can be seen from any angle. This attention to detail helps enrich even the few minutes it takes to boil water.

Product Stories

I wanted to have a more enjoyable experience in the kitchen. I had many thoughts of how to achieve this, which led me to the creation of BALMUDA The Pot.

Gen Terao, CEO and Chief Designer, BALMUDA
Two years ago, I bought a cookbook by the chef of Restaurant Omiya in Asakusa, Tokyo. It soon occurred to me that if all I wanted was to eat the chef’s cooking, it would have been faster to just go to the restaurant. So why buy the book? Because I imagined making the same Japanese Hamburg steak (or Hambagu) myself at home, and seeing my children enjoy it. I realized that I bought the book not for the meal, but for the experience of cooking the meal for my family at home.
My previous cookbook experience laid the foundation for BALMUDA The Toaster, with a focus on “experiences over things”. Believe me, this toaster sees heavy use at my house too. Because the toast it makes is so delicious, I started making bacon and eggs in a cast-iron frying pan to go with it. This, in turn, made breakfast a more enjoyable experience than ever. It was only natural that I’d eventually start wishing for perfectly brewed coffee, as well.

One day, I decided I wanted to master the art of pour-over coffee. After my first few practice sessions, I was sure of one thing: existing kettles (traditional or electric) were difficult to use. I wondered what sort of nozzle and handle would provide the best pouring experience? After countless prototypes and discussions with baristas, BALMUDA The Pot took on its current form. Brewing pour-over coffee is now a soothing ritual in itself.

The kettle is also ideal for more casual occasions when boiling water is needed — from pots of tea to instant noodles. Whether in the kitchen or at the dining table, BALMUDA The Pot delivers a natural and enjoyable experience.
