Cats Kitchenware

The Japanese cat day (February 22nd) is over, but our celebration isn't over yet. We now carry more cats items from Kaijirushi, a company that develops and sells kitchenware and beauty care products. Their cat shaped items are characterized not only by their cuteness but also by their functional significance. These products incorporate the know-how of a long-established cutlery manufacturer that has been in business for over 110 years. Those super adorable items surely make your daily life with cooking and wearing makeup etc. more fun and enjoyable. Also, some Japanese kitchenware have unique functions that American kitchenware doesn't have. We'll introduce them this week, so you'll know how to use them better! (Today: Kitchenware, the next blog post: beacuty care products.)


"Nyammy" Kitchenware

"Enjoy cooking with cats" is this series' theme. While taking advantage of the performance of their best-selling products, they have incorporated cat motifs in a way that don't disturb the atmosphere of the kitchen. Whether you are a cat lover or not, these products will make you want to use them.

Santoku Knife

This *Santoku knife is suitable for cutting a variety of foods such as meat, fish, and vegetables. While enjoying the sharpness that only a cutlery manufacturer can provide, it has a blade made of rust-resistant stainless steel with an easy-to-clean coating. The cat's footprints are marked in 1 cm increments to serve as a guide when cutting. The blade length is 6.5"/16.5 cm. It's an easy to use size.

*The Santoku knife is a general-purpose kitchen knife originating in Japan. Its blade is typically between 13 and 20 cm long, and has a flat edge and a sheepsfoot blade that curves down an angle approaching 60 degrees at the point.

Fruit Knife

Like the Santoku Knife, this is also a knife with a real blade that is designed to be sharp and easy to clean. The direction of the blade and the angle of the handle for easy gripping were pursued for optimal cutting and peeling of fruits. The blade has an easy-to-clean coating. The cat's footprints are marked in 1 cm increments to serve as a guide when cutting. The handle is shaped for easy gripping. It comes with a safety cap for smooth blade insertion and removal.


This peeler has a motif of a silhouette of a cat sitting. With the loop on the side, you can conveniently remove sprouts of potatoes etc. The back side can be used for grating condiments (the grater is also shaped like cats). A hat-shaped cover with cat ears is included for safety when storing the peeler.

Slicer/Grater/Decorative Cutter

Slicing, grating, and decorative cutting can be done with just one! This double-blade slicer can slice quickly and easily. The cat motif is incorporated not only in the upper part of the main unit but also in the decorative cutting section, allowing you to cut out thinly sliced ham or cheese into a cat-shaped slice.

Measuring Spoons

This set of two measuring spoons of a parent cat (15 ml tablespoon) and a kitty (5 ml teaspoon), can be stacked for easy storage. The feet on the front are a clip, so it can be used to temporarily fasten bags of coffee, flour, etc. They are dishwasher safe.

Measuring Cup

This measuring cup is designed to prevent dripping even when poured from any direction, so it's less likely to stain hands or places where they are placed. One side has a black and white scale that is easy to read depending on the color of the seasoning or liquid to be measured. The other side has scales specifically for flour (left) and white sugar (right), the volume of which changes depending on what you measure.

Kitchen Sicssors

These kitchen scissors have a silhouette of a cat sitting on a chair as a motif. The elastomer handle provides a firm grip, and the serrated blade prevents food from slipping. They come with a magnetic storage case, so you can stick them on a refrigerator, etc. The left and right blades cannot be disassembled.

Rice Scoop

The tip of the rice scoop is shaped like a cat's hand, with a design of a paw in the center. The surface is embossed to prevent rice grains from sticking to it, and the handle is shaped to make it easy to grip.


These are nylon spatulas that feature an easy-to-grip handle with a sitting cat design to prevent damage to pans. (They're sold separately.) The left one has a smaller spatula area and is symmetrically shaped. The right one feature a larger spatula area and is shaped like a fan. The right one is recommended for those who want something that can be used for all purposes.


This basic size ladle features an easy-to-grip handle with the design of a sitting cat. It's dishwasher safe. (The right one in the photo is a ladle.)

Scum Strainer

This is a scum strainer to skim off the scum and fat of the ingredients such as meat and vegetables from the soup. It also features an easy-to-grip handle with the design of a sitting cat.

Mesh Skimmer

This is a mesh skimmer. It's used to remove dregs when cooking deep-fried foods. It can be used for various purposes as well, such as separating boiled tofu, removing juice or soup from dishes, etc. It also features an easy-to-grip handle with the design of a sitting cat.
