HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Hawaiian Word of the Day is ipuhao.
Ipuhao, like many of the other words we discuss which are translated from English to Hawaiian, is made up of a couple of parts: ipu, or gourd, generally a container for liquid, and hao, which is the Hawaiian word for iron or any metal tool.
The compound word ipuhao literally means: iron gourd of container. It is the word that is used for a metal saucepan, kettle, skillet or any cooking pot.
