Thanks for the heads up. I’ll get myself a pot once I’ve picked up the stove. The ship coming into Tokyo was delayed a day or two which means we couldn’t pick it up during the holidays. I’m hoping it will be ready for collection this Friday. If so, I’ll be renting a truck and going down there early Friday. It’s a bit of a pain that the warehouse isn’t open on Saturdays.Zasso Nouka wrote:This has already been posted but it's well worth reiterating. Grab yourself a pot of Rutland Creosote Remover or equivalent and use it once a week or less often if you don't use your stove every day. It turns the creosote that builds up in your chimney from an inflammable tar like substance into a dry crystalline powder that is non flammable and thus reducing the risk of a chimney fire considerably. It also makes cleaning the chimney a breeze as the dry powder comes off the inner chimney surface very easily when cleaning.
It is available Amazon at the moment and Komeri's online shop also stocks it. You can pick it up in Cainz Home for around 2,600円 and it goes for around 3,000円 in Joyful Honda. Most maki stove shops also stock it. A single pot should last you through the winter.
I just noticed your post regarding free maki that you posted back around November time. Apologies for not noticing it any sooner. I popped into the mountains last weekend and got a car full (perhaps a little too full) of free maki which I’m hoping might be ok for next winter if I’m lucky.
