Iga region used to be the bed of Lake Biwa in the pre-historic time. The clay from this region naturally has a higher level of heat-resistance; therefore the potteries for the open-flame use have been made in this region for hundreds of years.

Due to the clay from the Iga consists of higher content of carbonated organisms form the pre-histroic time, the clay which makes Iga-style pottery is generally porous. Therefore, it "breathes" during cooking. When cooked with this Iga-Style Donabe, Porous clay benefits the body to retain the heat fully before it penetrates the core of each ingredient in Donabe. Also, with the effect of the far infrared radiation (FIR), The ingredients cook evenly while the flavors are sealed inside.

How to use

  1. Place the yakiyakisan over a gas stove
  2. Fill the base well with water. Only fill 80% to prevent overflowing.
  3. Place the grilling top over the base.
  4. Turn on the gas stove and heat the yakiyakisan for 5 minutes over high heat.
  5. After 5 minutes, lower the stove to medium heat, and begin grilling.

The yakiyakisan uses the unique features of the Iga clay to grill ingredients perfectly and as if it is grilling over Japanese charcoal. The hot iga clay earthenware produces high heat and infrared rays to create a crisp outer layer that traps the juices and flavor of the ingredients inside. The design of the grilling top drains any excess oils and fats into the water well, which makes for a very healthy cooking method. With the yakiyakisan, you can grill fish, meat, and vegetables easily at home with very little smoke in comparison to other stove top grills.


  • Dry completely before setting the yakiyakisan over a stove. Failure to dry earthenware thoroughly may result in cracking and breaking.
  • Hand wash the yakiyakisan thoroughly after use, and allow to dry completely before storing. Storing before earthenware is dry will result in molding, cracking, and breaking. Only store earthenware in dry storage spaces to prevent molding.
  • Allow the yakiyakisan to cool completely before washing or placing in water. Sudden temperature changes may result in earthenware to crack.
  • Certain ingredients may produce some smoke. Please keep the room well ventilated.
  • The yakiyakisan will retain high heat even after the gas stove is turned off. Please handle with caution to avoid accidents and wounds.
  • Use a base or trivet under the yakiyakisan, if you remove the yakiyakisan from the stove to a different surface. Earthenware can scratch up surfaces without a base.
  • To remove stubborn grease and food residue, please soak in water for a few minutes then wash.
Chef Reviews
“It’s the perfect tabletop grill. It’s a great compact size that deliciously cooks various foods like meat, fish, shrimp and vegetables. I love that the outer reservoir makes it virtually smokeless. The Iga clay also produces such even heat that there are no hotspots to burn your food. The obvious choice is to cook yaki-tori, Korean BBQ, or shishkabob. It would even be a great way to grill vegetables for a ratatouille.”- Chef Ming Tsai
