0% Absorption, Premium-Grade
[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, earthen 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.
The Highlight version makes direct contact with the flat 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 are shown in the product page below.
If you enjoy cooking Korean stews, this is a great buy!
Gochujar Note: Over the years, we have purchased one-too-many cheap Ttukbaegis. After a month, burn spots form on the bottom surface and begin to 'smoke' the foods. We recommend buying a high-quality pot from the start. We've been using ours for 3+ years - without any problems!
If you're having trouble deciding between the small (1-2 person) and large size (3-4 person), go for the large size.
The small size is best for specific dishes like Gyeran-Jjim (where the ingredients need to rise) or... for use as serving ware. But for cooking Korean stews and soups directly in the Ttukbaegi, the large size is recommended.
Got it since I am an avid collector of cookware that's traditional to the cuisines I enjoy cooking at home. I have been looking for a Ttukbaegi for a while, and happened upon Global gochujar while browsing youtube. My scepticism was not on the quality but on shipping. I do shop online a lot from various ecom sites. Shipping to india is challenge for some reason especially for european sellers... I have had good experience however from asian countries like china japan and hongkong but this was my first attempt from Korea. And I must say that I am absolutely surprised by the entire process. The item was packed well and shipped by Daniel very quickly and he even accommodated my request for packing requirements. I received the item in under 2 weeks from purchase. This by far is one of the smoothest experiences I have had so far while eshopping internationally. Ofcourse the Ttukbaegi is of high quality as mentioned on the website and I am absolutely thrilled to add it to my collection. I would highly recommend Global Gochujar to anyone who is exploring ...
The product arrived promptly in great condition. It is a beautiful well made pot. However, It is smaller expected so be sure to order the large one. I like that the highlight is flat and can be used on electric stoves.
I bought the larger highlight ttukbaegi, and it's beautiful. I'm proud to have this piece in my home. If you are debating between the two pot sizes, definitely purchase the larger one (it's not that big) :D .
Seems small at first but is a good size portion for one person. If you want for more than one person I would purchase the larger size. Good quality. Use this pot all the time. Very happy with this purchase.
Really nice pots. Great quality and easy to clean. Highly recommend!

[Clean Ttukbaegi] Signature Ttukbaegi Pots
This is a picture of a regular Ttukbaegi. When brought to boil, it's common to see white foam at the surface. This is caused when leftover dishwasher soap is released from the pores and cracks of the clay.
This is Clean Ttukbaegi™. It has a 0% absorption rate - due to the special clay's high mass/density. The surface is not porous and liquids are unable to soak into the clay.
Patent certificate for: 0% absorption clay material
