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.
This is a small matt-textured pottery saucepan or milk warmer pot and lid with a wooden handle. Unlike some other earthenware, this pan can be used directly on a stove. It is perfect for heating up a small amounts of soup, milk or sauce. Also it is a great chai cooking pot or baby food. Attaching the wooden handle to pottery requires great skill, but is achieved through a painstaking process by the craftsman, who attaches each handle by hand.
Do not use in the oven, microwave or dishwasher. Hand wash and air dry or dry with a cloth. Avoid heat on the wood handle. Do not heat when the pan is empty. Avoid leaving in water for a long period of time which can cause stain.
