The carbon pot is cookware made of carbon, handled by the Anaori Carbon company. As he was developing the carbon pot, the creator took a hint from his childhood, when his father, the company founder, baked potatoes using carbon stones. The pot boasts a purity level of 9 9.9% carbon, made by heating carbon over and over again using enormous pressure and temperatures that surpass 3000 degrees. That carbon is cut into units of 0.01mm, then molded and polished by a craftsman before being given a ceramic coating to complete the pot.
