A classic donabe with modern touches, the Hato nabe can be used for a wide variety of dishes, from hot pots and stews to braised meats, paellas, or steamed vegetables. The matte white glaze has subtle variations in tone and texture that make each piece unique. Available in two sizes — the small size is perfect for side dishes or a meal for one or two, while the medium is sized for a family or small dinner party of two to four.
Based in Seto City, Aichi Prefecture, one of the six ancient kilns of Japan, Marumitsu Poterie was founded in 1950 with the aim to design kitchen and tableware that combines Japanese traditional craft with modern forms, to add joy to the act of cooking and eating.
Marumitsu donabe are safe for heat, including oven and gas flame. Not recommended for use on an electric stove unless using a heat diffuser. As with all natural materials, never shock the dish by moving it quickly from cold to hot, or vice versa. Warm it slowly over low heat to start, and never submerge a hot pot in water. Never heat the pot empty or when the bottom is wet, which can cause it to crack.
