  • Oven*, open flame safe.
  • Hand wash and dry well to store.

*Please remove the cover before placing in the oven.



Since Donabe casserole is made from clay that is materially porous, filling the tiny pores in the pot by pre-seasoning process prevents any breakage and damage and extends your donabe's life.

  1. Fill donabe about 80 - 90% with rice water** (the water after you rinse rice) and bring to a boil.
  2. After the water starts boiling, turn down the heat to low and simmer for 20 - 30 minutes.
  3. Turn off the heat and let cool.
  4. Throw out the rice water and rinse out donabe.
  5. Dry with cloth and let air dry completely before using.

**You can actually cook some leftover rice in it with water, making a porridge as a pre-seasoning process. Or add flour or potato starch to the water instead of using rice water. (In that case, the ratio would be 9 : 1 (water : flour/potato starch).


  • Dry with cloth and let air dry completely before using.
  • Not to be used for deep frying.
  • Make sure the exterior of the pot is completely dry before heating, or the material may expand and crack.
  • Do not start cooking anything with a very high flame - this pot is not for flash cooking! It is for slow cooking stews and soups.
  • Do not heat empty; make sure there is some liquid when on a flame.
