Each piece is handmade in Yokkaichi in Mie prefecture. Yokkaichi is famous for its pottery, and has 300 years of history of making earthenware from its high quality soil. They are called Banko Yaki and are characterized by their natural texture and simple design.
These oven-safe round gratin dishes are perfect as an individual oven dish or as a tapas dish to share with friends and family. They also serve very well as a dessert plate for compote or creme brulee. Their Japanese style has an earthy warmth but their lines are simple. These oven-safe casserole dishes are thin and light-weighted, but not fragile nor too thin. Their elegant earthy colours set off the natural colour of the food they contain. There are four color variations, each with a matt texture. We also carry the Oval version of the same series.
It is oven, microwave and dishwasher safe.
