In 1932, Sutematsu Kumamoto, the first generation of the company, built a factory to realize high quality manufacturing that I can be satisfied with.
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.
About BaNKO ware
Yokkaichi Banko ware is a ceramic ware produced in Yokkaichi City, Mie Prefecture. Since ancient times, it has been used to make daily necessities such as tea bowls and plates, as well as works of art such as vases.
Today, Kyusu teapots and earthenware pots are representative products of Banko ware, and earthenware pots in particular account for 80% to 90% of all earthenware pots produced in Japan.
Yokkaichi Banko ware is characterized by the excellent heat resistance due to the ceramic clay used. The clay used for earthenware pots is mixed with about 40% lithium ore called petalite, which has a high heat resistance. This technique is patented by Yokkaichi Banko ware and cannot be seen anywhere else.
This is the easiest to use and most beautiful clay pot I have owned. The rice cooks perfectly every time and cleaning it is also the easiest I’ve used. Thank You for making such a functional and beautiful piece. It will always be out on my kitchen counter for everyone to see!
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this amazing review. We're so happy to see that you're feeling satisfied so much! We are very proud of our craftsmen's skills by your appreciation, and we look forward to your next visit soon.
it shipped incredibly fast! literally faster than the things i order from the U.S. lol. the pot was wrapped with furoshiki paper & was packaged securely. it looks exactly as pictured and is so nice to touch because it feels high quality. i went with the navy color and wow it looks good in my kitchen. i have not cooked in it yet but hoping to season it soon and see how it goes. but so far, so good! only thing, i was hoping it to be a little smaller, so i hope they create a personal size one day.
Thanks so much for your thoughtful and detailed review! We’re glad that the Donabe arrived safely and that you love it so much! And your feedback will be used for future product development. We're looking forward to your next visit!
