Taiji Sake Warmer
Item #: TK-103-10
Size: 14.5"L x 9.75"W x 22.25"H (33.5"H including sake meter)
Large sake boxes are not sold in FL or PA by law.
For a restaurant that sells a lot of hot sake, this is an indispensable kitchen tool. Works by heating entire boxes of sake to 45-65ºC. through a series of glass pipes that heat water and then warm the sake to desired temperature. This method heats the sake gently and more precisely, resulting in a better, more reliable product.

Make sure to allow this unit to occupy its own outlet and clean regularly as the sugars in the sake can damage the machine over time.  When well-maintained, the sake warmer can last for 10 years or more.

How it works

  • The unit indirectly heats the sake through a coil with warm water.
  • Water enters the unit through top right hole in the machine.
  • Beneath this hole is a water level indicator and then at the bottom on the right is a spout to release water from the unit.
  • The sake box is connected to the machine by a coupler. There are two types of couplers for:
    • Coupler A included: American sake boxes (ex. Oseiki)
    • Coupler B import: Japanese sake boxes (ex. Shirayuki)
  • The power button is the green [SW] button on the unit.
  • The temperature control is to the right of the power yellow power button.
    • Nurukan / low temperature is 45 degrees Celsius.
    • Atsukan / high temperature is 65 degrees Celsius.
  • The next button to the left of the temperature control is the manual pour button.
  • The spout position controls the pouring and has an automatic shut off.
  • When the spout is pushed back, the unit will pour sake.
  • The tray is adjustable under the spout based on the size of the sake bottle.
