Kansa Bowl + Spoon
Kansa, also called bell metal or bronze in english is one of the best metals to eat food from. It is an alloy of tin and copper and in Ayurveda, there is a long list of health benefits of regular usage of pure Kansa utensils. We love that it is said to promote holistic healing by relieving stress, boosting energy levels, and taking care of gut health. It's immunity boosting properties are a perfect match to our Panjiri.
The pure Kansa Bowls and Spoons are weighty by nature of the material given it a very luxurious handful.

This product can be washed normally like other utensils. A day in an entire week can be kept for special cleaning incase needed. Pitambari powder, which is easily available in the market, can be applied to the products and rinsed off with water to give them a shiny look. Feel free to use household sour elements like a mixture of tamarind+salt or a mixture of wheat+vinegar/lime+salt, if pitambari is not available.
Imperfections are the hallmark and beauty of handcrafted products. Minor black marks and scratches are part of the process of making brass, copper and kansa products. We do not accept returns for such minor marks and hope you embrace the beauty and accept them in their raw form.
