To share our belief that love starts from within. To love ourselves, we need to start by taking good care of our bodies and eating a healthy diet. Diet is the foundation of maintaining health as well as life. Delicious, well prepared food arouses our feelings of happiness and well being. Using cast iron teapots and cookware to boil water and cook food brings not only good health, but great taste too.
Supplements the iron in human bodies and improves health. Without non-stick coatings inside, a cast iron teapot will slowly release Fe2+ when boiling water, which human bodies absorb easily, while the iron in normal food is Fe3+, which can only be transformed to Fe2+ with an enzyme, then to be absorbed by the intestine. In the Long Life Village in Japan, people continue to use iron kitchenware which is thought to contribute to the long life span of the centenarians by decreasing iron deficiency and anemia.
TAKU Ironware originated from a husband’s love for his wife. Because of a doctor’s advice to Mrs. Lin to cook with and enjoy the health benefits of cast iron cookware, the founder, Dr. Solas Y.J. Lin, started to study cast ironware. He could not find quality, well-made cast iron teapots and cookware anywhere; as a result, he devoted himself to “TAKU Ironware” with the goal of “making extremely clean and reliable cookware.” This original intention gave life to TAKU Ironware.
TAKU Ironware is Beautiful. Design inspired by Taiwanese culture, combining Taiwanese art and handicraft artistry.
Our goal is to design products that show our cultural characteristics. The design theme showcases folk cultures and we strive to work with local artists. For example, the handles of TAKU Iron Teapots are designed by a well-known artist in Zhushan, Ms. Chiu, Chin-Tuan, who is famous for her bamboo and rattan woven handicrafts. The texture feels warm and smooth, and it shows the unique beauty of Taiwanese art.
