For a variety of soups, stews, noodles, and other hot pot dishes, meet your new best friend: the Iga Donabe. After its extraction from the Kobiwako Formation near Iga, Japan, the clay used to make this versatile cooking tool is shaped and fired through a method that produces a telltale glaze - the natural result of ash settling on the surface of the clay under extreme heat. Read more on the value of a good donabe in Bon Appetit or visit the rikumo journal for a few donabe-friendly recipes.

The Iga Donabe can be used over an open flame, in the oven, or in a microwave; not for use with induction stovetops. Note that the outermost layer may crack slightly during use due to a lack of petalite in the clay mixture; this is natural and should not hinder your enjoyment of the product.
