Kikka Banko Donabe Japanese Clay Pot Induction Compatible for 3 to 4 persons

JPY ¥55,000

The contrast between the indigo lid, which resembles a chrysanthemum flower, and the black body gives a modern impression. Convenient clay pot for both induction cooktop and open flame. Also available with electric stove tops and ovens. 

The ceramic coating on the inside of the earthenware pot makes it non-stick and easy to clean. Its high hardness also makes it scratch-resistant and durable.

With a shallow shape, the size of 2.7L(91.3oz) 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 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.

The black body part uses an in-house developed glaze that prevents odor and stain problems.

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 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.

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.

I recommend this product

Very well made!

I cooked my first dinner tonight using my new donabe. It is extremely well made. I was worried the induction compatibility would be weak but it heated up like a charm and maintained temperature throughout the whole cooking process. It is very beautiful as well so it goes from stove to table very nicely for family style service. At the end of the meal, the enamel coating makes cleaning very easy as nothing sticks. I recommend it wholeheartedly! I wish they would make an induction compatible version of their double lid rice cooker donabe.
