What is Donabe?
"Donabe", also known as Hot Pot, is a earthenware pot, which is made of clay. "Do" means clay, and "Nabe" means pot in Japanese.
Hot Pot dishes, also called “Nabemono” are best enjoyed in the winter months. “Nabemono” is a perfect meal to be shared with friends or family and is deeply rooted in many Asian cultures.
Since earthenware pots have lower thermal conductivity,
food can be simmered for long periods of time without over cooking.
*Do not place hot Donabe directly on your tabletop.
What is the difference between Donabe and other pots?
The specific heat of earthenware is said to be about twice that of iron. Therefore, Donabe Hot Pots do not cool down easily once heated.
Heat-resistant ceramics such as earthenware pots are porous and generally have a water absorption rate of about 10%, which prevents the food from drying out.
