Sekkai Cooking Pot - 2 sizes

€340,00 EUR

  • Traditional clay pot for dishes like hot pot or noodles
  • Rice cooked in a clay pot is tastier than in a regular metal pot
  • Designers collaborate with craftsmen to create an exceptional product

Nabe Hot Pot for slow cooked soups and Hot Pot shared meals. A very traditional cooking pot that will be found in every household in Japan. Made from clay that is glazed everywhere except the bottom so that food does not stick as easily. The pot is used directly on the stove. We recommend a gas stove for the table for the full experience. Muji has a wonderful one but you can find them at most Japanese supermarkets.

Hot pot is an especially nice way to spend time with family and friends. Very easy to prepare. Recipes are easy to find but it is generally so easy to prepare ... cut up vegetables, meat, fish, seafood, or whatever you like. At the end we put udon noodles in. Healthy and a nice way for everyone to dip in and choose what they want to eat. There are no rules with this and it is so nice to experiment with new ingredients and dips.

This pot also cooks rice very well. The small opening at the top allows the rice to steam so that it becomes fluffy. Bring the rice and water to a boil and then put on low heat until the rice is cooked. Turn off the burner and allow the rice to steam for about 10 minutes.

Dimension M: W30.3 x L27 x H15.5 cm
Dimension L: W33.7 x L30 x H16.5 cm

Medium size is recommended for 2 or 3 people. Large size is recommended for more guests. We always keep the pot on the heat so the amount of people doesn't matter so much because we just keep adding ingredients, hot water, and at the end after the soup stock has absorbed all the flavours, it is perfect with the noodles.

For care: Do not put in the dishwasher or soak in water overnight. Clean regularly after you are finished using and leave to dry. Store in a dry place. With proper care this pot will last you a lifetime.

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design.

We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.
