Shirohakeme Donabe
Item #: DNA-121-11
Size: 10.75"Dia. x 6.7"H - 96oz
Made with clay from the Iga region of Japan, the Shirohakeme is a beautiful piece of earthenware for soups, stews, and hotpot. This region is located in what was once the bed of Lake Biwa during the prehistoric period, and the mineral deposits make earthenware from this region more porous than most. The result is a higher heat resistance, a quality for which Iga donabes are renowned. This donabe is perfect for families and small gatherings of friends.

  • Please completely dry the pot before use. When you first fill the pot with water, you may notice that water is seeping through the pot. Japanese Earthenware is made this way to avoid cracking while heating. To eliminate this problem, please follow the instructions below:

    1. Cook porridge or heat water mixed with cornstarch in the pot until it boils.
    2. Leave the porridge or water with water in the pot and allow it to cool completely for 1 - 2 hours.
    3. Remove the contents.
    4. Allow the earthenware to air dry overnight.
    5. Gently and quickly wash.
    6. Ready to use!
    7. Please note that this only needs to be done once.
