When cooking in Banko ware pots, a far infrared wavelength is created which creates more efficient cooking than direct surface conducted heating.  Banko ware can be used on gas range tops, inside an oven and for brief re-heatings- microwave ovens. Banko ware is not suitable for electric range tops (electric oven is ok), no deep frying or use on induction burners.

Banko ware aka Banko Yaki (萬古焼)or Yokkaichi Banko Yaki is a heat resistant earthenware that has been made in Mie prefecture since the 18th century.  It represents the majority of stoneware for cooking produced in Japan, and is officially recognized as a traditional Japanese craft. The addition of petalite added to the clay gives Banko ware an excellent heat resistance and allows it to be exposed to direct flame.
