More Information

A short form of this is vut'un:
The most common utensil used in preparing Klingon food is the 'un ("pot"), a word found with the same meaning throughout the Empire. The names for specific types of pots, however, exhibit some regional variation. For example, while a large, flat-bottomed pot is usually called a bargh, in some regions it is a vutmeH 'un ("pot for preparing [food]"), sometimes shortened to simply vut'un. In some regions, a bargh made of metal is a mIv (which also means "helmet," even though, historically speaking, helmets are not necessarily made of metal) or a mIv bargh ("helmet pot"), while a ceramic bargh is called a chor (literally, "belly") or chor bargh ("belly pot"). (KGT p. 27-28)
