Donabe Cooking Pot
The Mie prefecture in Japan is renowned for its ceramics manufacture and industry. Local Bankoyaki artisans produce handmade pottery that is both beautiful and practical for everyday use honouring processes and techniques that date back to the 18th century Edo period.
Donabe are traditional Japanese earthenware cooking pots which can be used over an open flame and also in the oven. These flame to table donabe have an unglazed base with a simple off-white glaze on the remaining exterior and interior.
The pots are suitable for cooking meats, vegetables, broths and casserole dishes.
Due to the porous nature, the earthenware will crackle naturally over time. The crackling will not effect the pots performance but it is recommended to periodically boil a handful of rice (starch) which will help to protect the longevity of your pot.
