When Japanese make nimono (simmer vegetables and other foods (fish, seaweed, etc) in a broth) they use an "Otoshibuta" to help cook the item, by placing a lid on top of the food to help with steaming.
"Otoshi"- means drop, "buta"- means lid and it also means pig!
Therefore, this creative kitchen store has created a literal Ostoshibuta- a pig lid for cooking!
The pig nostrils can be lifted with chopsticks- no burning your hands!
The silicone rubber lid can also be used to open jars- typical of a Japanese gadget, it is kawaii (cute) and multi-functional.
