Do you have a potto? No, not the tailless ape. I mean a denki potto (電気ポット). A denki potto is a hot water machine. People use it to make coffee and tea. We keep one plugged in at our house to make baby formula, cocoa and tea. It’s very convenient.
Another use for the potto is when you are making pasta, soup or any other food that requires a large quantity of boiling water. Instead of pouring water from your sink and waiting 10 minutes to get it to boil, pour water from your potto! You’ll have a pan full of boiling water in a very short time. Our denki potto keeps the water at 90 degrees Celsius. That’s not far from boiling!
If you don’t own a denki potto, you can buy one pretty cheap. A low-end one costs about 4000 yen.
Do you have any denki potto tricks? Let me know in the comments.
