There is a spark in creation that brings so many auras in ancient wisdom such as the one transcended through Kansa Kitchenware. Kansa the Indian name for Bell metal is a hard alloy usually a form bronze, with approximately 4:1 ratio of copper to the tin. Different places call it with a different name like Assam calls it kanh while in West Bengal and Odisha, Kansa. It is widely used for cooking and eating utensils. Ayurveda: The mystery of the metal has been continuously been unfolding since the Bronze Age, about 3000 years ago. Ayurveda further taught us that eating and drinking from alkalinizing metals like Kansa vessels have wellness benefits for our health and well being. Kansa kitchenware is also called the hands of grace. In the 5th chapter and 46th verse, of famous grantha ‘Rasratnasamucchaya’ (‘रसरत्नसमुच्चय’), we find significant information about Kansa Kitchenware on medicinal properties and its benefits to humans. How is it made? Copper and tin are heated together for 400 -700 degrees Celsius to form Bronze. This molten metal is then made into sheets which are then molded into desired shapes. Utensils are manually finished by polishing with traditional materials such as sand and tamarind juice. Designs are made by skilfully hammering a series of tiny dents into the heated metal. Kansa Kitchenware has been used since the period of Samhita Kala (संहिता काल) or as far back as we know from our recorded history. According to the descriptions given in Ayurveda Prakasha, Kansa Kitchenware is also used for its therapeutic applications. It can be easily identified as it gives a sharp sound (Teekshna Shabdam), is soft (Mridu), and smooth to touch (Snigdha). It is slightly grayish (Eshat Shyamalan) and is clear from impurities (Shubhram/Nirmalam); and it turns red on heating (Dahe Raktam). In our grandparent’s times there wasn’t even a single home without Kansa Kitchenware, lets revive the old glory back and reap benefits in the form of good health.
