Daikoku Banko Soup Donabe in Size 9 (ideal for approximately 4 people). 

The stainless steel plate inside the donabe magically will turn this donabe IH compatible! When you are using on gas flame, simply remove the plate for dual use. 

The shape of this donabe has also been modified to be IH compatible, with a flatter bottom for maximum contact with the IH surface. 

You can use for induction cooktops, gas stovetops, and ovens. 

This is a 3 piece 9 gou IH soup two piece donabe, with a lid and body plus a stainless steel plate. It has a ceramic coating for ease of cleaning, and allows you to skip the step of "medome" (or seasoning).  

These classic style donabe are best suited for braising, soups and stews but can be used to cook a wide range of meals. The donabe comes with a pot and lid. 

The perfect vessel for a hot pot meal, easily made with the donabe pantry to go kit and simply adding any vegetable or protein you have in your fridge for a fast and nutritious weeknight meal. 

We are often asked, what is the difference between cooking in a donabe compared to a Dutch oven?

Donabes have a slower rise to peak temperature and hence the umami and inherent sweetness of the ingredients are gently coaxed out of them, without breaking the food’s structure. The donabe also stays hotter for much longer due to the petalite, allowing for a more gradual cooling process. This slow cooling process is essential for what the Japanese call “shimikomi” or “soaking in of flavors”. Finally, the natural clay used for donabes allow for far infrared rays to cook the food, similar to yakitori grilling with binchotan coals, allowing the food ingredients to be cooked to its core and with even temperatures.

Perhaps most importantly, however, donabes have a strong emotional component as they are associated with coming together with your loved ones as it simmers on your dining table on top of a butane grill– allowing for cooking, conversing, and eating all at the same time. 

We are proud to carry our donabes from Kagetsu, a family business making ceramics for over 150 years in Yokkaichi, Japan. 

Kagetsu was the creator of the modern donabe clay formula, as household cooking in Japan was transitioning from traditional wood-fire to gas after World War 2 and donabes needed to adjust to its higher temperatures. The current CEO’s father and uncle identified petalite as a key ingredient that can increase the donabe’s heat tolerance, after finding clues in the heat-resistant tiles of NASA rockets. 

Because our line of donabes use a higher percentage of petalite in its clay formula than other companies, it is resistant to cracking even so much that you can bring it from the fridge straight to direct flame.
