Donabe is the Japanese name of clay pots. They are often used over stoves or gas burners for Nabemomo (pot cooking) dishes, such as the popular shabu shabu. Clay pots are popular in Asia because of the distinct taste and flavor of clay pot dishes. Beyond the great taste of clay pot dishes, donabes are also well-loved because they usually last a long time, sometimes, for decades.
It was said that in ancient Japan, decades-old donabes are stored away only to be used when special guests arrive, while new donabes were commonly used for everyday cooking.
With a vented lid, the donabe clay pot is great for cooking. Dishwasher safe, this clay pot is a fantastic way to whip up new dishes. Clay pot cooking is easy and convenient and great for people with busy schedules.
