Rikyu Tokusa Donabe
A classic donabe in gorgeous hand-painted tokusa* style glaze. Traditionally used for Japanese hot pot meals such as shabu shabu and yosenabe, the Rikyu Tokusa donabe is also an ideal vessel for stewing and braising.
The porous nature of the Iga-sourced clay allows it to retain heat long after being removed from the flame, making it suitable for serving at the table, where it makes for a beautiful presentation as well as a convenient serving bowl. Pair with a Windmill Palm or Rush Trivet to protect your table from heat when serving direct from the stove or oven.
Specifically for use on gas stovetops, over an open flame, or in an oven up to 500°F. Cannot be used on electric stovetops.
