The Hana Mishima (Ginpo Mishima) series, with its large floral pattern in a soothing gradation of white and gray, has been a long seller of the company since the 1970s. It was first used by professional chefs and continues to be widely loved both in Japan and abroad. Even after more than 20 years of use in restaurants and ryotei (traditional Japanese restaurants), the pots continue to be functional and durable.

All painting is done by hand. The painter himself makes the brushes by hand, and uses the one that feels best in his hand. It is a masterpiece that people have continued to choose for about half a century.

You can enjoy not only hot pot dishes, but also soup curry, cheese fondue, and many other dishes.

With a little shallow shape, the size of 3.2L(108.2oz) is suitable for 3 to 4 persons to enjoy Donabe dishes. For other dishes such as soup, stew, curry, cheese fondue, it can cook up to 4 to 5 people.

It can be used with open flame, electric cooktop and oven.
Note: This earthenware pot is not compatible with induction cooktops.

It can be used immediately after purchase because it does not need to be seasoned before use.

It is 15% lighter than conventional products while retaining the heat retaining properties of clay pots.

Banko Ware has excellent heat resistance, durability, and heat retention properties. It is also resistant to heat, making it difficult for food to cool down. The far-infrared ray effect locks in the umami of the food.

In the midst of hardships and challenges, he listened to the voices of users and continued to develop earthenware pots that fit into people's lives. The "Kikka" series, completed through this history, continues to bring smiles to diners around the world.
