Description

Kyoto Maple Donabe Japanese Hot PotKyoto Maple is a traditional donabe pot made of earthenware;
Can be used on the stove top or in the oven;
Always remember to turn the stove on low heat and then increase slowly to desired temperature.

Preparation and Cleaning
It doesn’t need to be soaked in water before first use but you should season it before cooking your first meal. This can be done by making rice porridge in the pot, so that the starches seal the inner glaze’s pores. About 20% of the pot’s volume is filled with rice, and the other 80% with water. Simmer gently for an hour until the rice forms a thick porridge. Allow the pot and porridge to cool to room temperature and then discard. After a few hours wash and wipe off. Let it dry overnight. Make sure that the pot is completely dry before cooking with it because outside bottom might crack from the water vaporizing when applied to heat.
Hand washing with a mild soap is recommended.
