Pickles (tsukemono) are the unsung hero of the Japanese diet. Nobody pays much attention to them (they usually come in a tiny saucer of bowl that gets lost among the bigger serveware) but they are an essential part of Japanese cuisine and, according to some theories, yet another reason it is considered one of the healthiest in the world. If you think it's time to explore tsukemono culture, the Toffy K-KU6-PA Pickles Maker offers the easiest way to do it!
The Toffy K-KU6-PA Pickles Maker's secret is that it uses an ingenious screw-like mechanism that replicates the heavy weight that the Japanese traditionally put on the vegetables to turn them into pickles! With this appliance, you only need to put your vegetables and salt in the container, snap it shut, turn the screw to press the vegetables down, put it in the refrigerator, and then let the pickling process take its natural course. The results will amaze you!
