“Donabe” translation clay pot in Japanese, and it’s one of Japan’s oldest cooking vessels. This versatile tagine-style donabe, or fukkura-san, can be used for stir-frying, steaming, roasting, smoking, and stewing.
The fukkura-san cooks meat and fish to a perfect tenderness, while sealing in all the good flavors. The grate inside the pot can be used to roast vegetables, or as a smoker when chips are added underneath.
The special shape of this donabe also allows the lid to be used as a serving bowl. And its strong insulation makes it perfect for serving cold noodles, salads, and sashimi.
