This stunning, brilliantly versatile oven-to-table pot is handcrafted by a family of artisans who have been making donabe—Japan’s ultimate one-pot, oven-to-table stoneware cookers— for centuries. Made of special clay from a particular part of Japan, each pot takes two weeks to create and is thicker than most, so it retains heat better than any other donabe out there; it’s also incredibly durable. This one comes with a removable grate for steaming meat, veggies, and even dim sum. Stunningly simple and beautiful, it’s also super versatile: You can cook stews and braised dishes in here, as well as most healthy steamed dishes. A special glaze promotes far-infrared radiation (FIR), which enables heat to penetrate the core of whatever you’re cooking for the perfect, most even heat, whether it’s on a gas stove, in the oven, or waiting on the table—it’s the ultimate one-pot-wonder and absolutely the best in its class.

About the Brand

The secret to Igá-Monó's superior donabe is hidden in the clay vessel’s Biwa clay: The rich residue of an ancient valley submerged by Lake Biwa is embedded with the crushed organic matter of buried sea life. When fired, the matter dissolves to create a porous pot that allows for superior heat retention and induction. Igá-Monó has been produced by the same family for 175 years at the oldest kiln site in Japan.
