The proper way to warm saké
By Hot Water Bath
The first method involves the use of a Tokkuri (pottery carafe). This Tokkuri has to be placed up to its neck in a hot water bath. It is best to use a thermometer to determine the precise temperature (104 °F ~ 131 °F). At this point, it cannot be put into a pot or in an oven because boiling water will make the saké too hot, ruining its original taste.
If saké is to be heated by convection in a microwave, the temperature in a thin-trunked Tokkuri would be uneven, so a thicker-trunked Tokkuri would be more suitable for heating saké in a Microwave.
Cover the top of the bottle and place in the microwave for a minute. This will ensure that the saké will have an even temperature and that the upper portion will not be the only warm part.
