Bring a bit of edge to your dining table with this rustic Japanese donabe. Almost entirely unglazed, the rough, grainy texture that this pot brings is truly one of a kind. Made from an incredible sturdy ceramic in Japan, this large donabe pot is perfect for cooking healthy and warm one-pot meals. Also perfect for cooking stews, curries, or even use as a shabu shabu pot, this beautiful pot is sure to make a statement whether it is on the stovetop or the tabletop.
The Japanese donabe’s body is mostly coated in black, with an entirely black interior, handles, and about three quarters of its exterior. One strip of red goes around the entirety of the bowl about halfway down the body, and at the bottom of the pot’s exterior, the pot is left uncolored and features the original off-white raw ceramic. The entirety of the pot’s exterior body remains unglazed, aside from a partially glazed rim and handles. The two small handles are sharply grooved to make sure you have a good hold on your donabe pot. The inside of the donabe pot, however, has a papery smooth texture that is just inviting you to put delicious food in!
The most eye-catching part of this rustic Japanese donabe pot is its unique lid. Aside from a few thick rings of black coating and the knob, the lid is coated in a rich earthen redwood color. Thin black streaks are vertically engraved into the lid to give this pot a very natural and unrefined look. The lid features one ventilation hole and a knob with four sharp triangular dips, as well as a smooth yet bumpy undersurface that is accompanied by a ring of exposed white ceramic by the rim. As most of this pot is unglazed, you cannot put this pot in the microwave or dishwasher, but all the healthy and delightful one-pot meals that await you are worth the extra step.
