This Donabe clay pot is great for cooking rice as well as any kinds of slow cook dish. The pot conveys the heat gently and draws the flavorful genuine taste of foods. The use is very simple and surprisingly quick. For instance, this is how to make tasty rice with this pot; Heat the pot on the stove with rice and water, cook for 3 - 5 min depending on the amount of rice you make after it starts boiling, turn off the stove, and leave it for another 10 -20 min for steaming. That’s it! With these simple steps, tasty rice is ready. I also love making udon noodle with soup, curry, and various kinds of stews in this pot. The best part is that I can take this pot to the table and serve from it. It is beautiful in the table. In Japan, it’s said that sharing food from one pot creates deep ties among family and friends.
This pot is made of semi-porcelain and is oven and microwave safe.
