Brown ceramic donabe with steamer insert. Can be used for soups, stews and hot pots as well. Appropriate size for 2-4 people.
Nagatani-en donabe are made about 250 miles south-west of Tokyo in the Iga Province. These Iga-yaki donabe have been skillfully crafted under the Nagatani family for close to 8 generations. Since the Iga region was once the bed of Lake Biwa around 5 million years ago, the clay used contains many fossilized micro-organisms which creates an extremely porous body. Using the clay creates excellent heat retention and durability.
