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.
