Homeland Donabe - Hi-iro

Sale price$259.95

Easily makes premium quality rice that is rich in flavour, fluffy and perfectly textured. The large clay body is porous and allows the rice to breathe while cooking, while the thickness allows heat to evenly radiate throughout and cook the rice thoroughly.

Making rice in this donabe is dead simple and requires a short heating period followed by rest. During the rest period the rice continues to cook from the warmth contained in the wall of the pot - steaming and creating premium quality rice. 

The pot is multi-purpose and can be used for soups, stews and hot pots. Layer in veggies and fish over a bed of rice and reap the awards all at once. 

Crafted in the Shigaraki-cho in the Shiga Prefecture of Japan, an area famous for its sandy orange hued clay bedded in Lake Biwa which is rich in plasticity.
