[Clean Ttukbaegi] Premium Ttukbaegi Pot

Ttukbaegi is an essential piece of cookingware for Korean homecooking.

If you've been to a Korean BBQ restaurant before, you've probably seen it. The dark-brown pot that served to your table piping hot. It's used to serve stews like doenjang jjigae or banchans like Korean steamed eggs (Gyeran Jjim). Korean restaurants love to use Ttukbaegis as it keeps stews hot for the entire meal. 

Clean Ttukbaegi is the premier Ttukbaegi brand in Korea. Their pots have won numerous awards for excellence in design, material and durability. They have 4 key selling points that separate it from other Ttukbaegis on the market:

(#1) First, Clean Ttukbaegi has a 0% absorption rate. What does that mean? With regular Ttukbaegis, microscopic holes and fissures develop in the clay after time from normal usage. Dish soap and residual water creep into these fissures and release when cooking - that's why you see foam bubbles rise when boiling water. However, Clean Ttukbaegi is made with special clay that has a very high density. It prevents any liquids from being absorbed into the material. 

(#2) Traditionally, Ttukbaegis were heated over a fire or gas stove. Most have a small circular ridge on the bottom which creates a gap between the heat source and the pot. But this gap causes inefficient heating when cooking over a flat electric cooking top - which is in most modern kitchens. To address this problem, the company has created their "Highlight Ttukbaegis" which have no ridge. They make direct contact with the electric cooking tops for quick and even heating. (However, please note that both versions do not work on induction stovetops).

(#3) Clean Ttukbaegi does not overflow. Typically, one has to be close-by when boiling stew in a Ttukbaegi. The liquid tends to overflow when its boiling hard. However, the design of the Clean Ttukbaegi directs the external heat in an outward direction - preventing liquids from overflowing.

(#4) Finally, the Clean Ttuekbaegi retains heat better than others. The results from comparative tests shown below. 

If you enjoy cooking Korean stews, this is a great buy! In the past, we have purchased many cheap Ttukbaegis. Typically - after a few months - the bottom of the pots burn out and 'smoke' the foods - no good! Instead, we recommend buying a high-quality pot from the start!

wonderful pot

This pot is outstanding. I yet only owned two rather simple Korean pots that can only be used on the gas stove. They are fine but you are a little limited if you want to also use a pot on an electric oven.
Apart from that practical aspect the pot is also wonderful concerning the handling and preparing of the food. The heat evenly heats the whole pot without getting too warm in single places. Also you can cook soups and stews at rather high temperatures and they never boil over. It is also easy to clean and the pot itself is made of high quality material. I have meanwhile prepared three different soups and stews and they all turned out perfect.

Premium Ttukbaegi Pot - Beautiful

This was purchased as a Christmas gift, so it hasn't yet been used, but it is beautiful! And I also can't say enough about the quick (and safe) shipping, as well as the thoughtful note signed by Daniel. I'm sure we will purchase more as I am a very happy customer.

This is the Ttukbaegi made by Clean Ttukbaegi. It has 0% absorption rate - due to its high mass density. Thus, no white foam when boiling water.
