Description

This uniquely designed Donabe smoking pot allows for easy smoking on the cooker. By pouring water into the reservoir between the donabe pot and the lid, the lid is sealed tightly so that smoke does not leak out. This sealing effect allows the smoke flavour to remain in the donabe to flavour the ingredients with little sakura/cherry blossom wood chips. Matching cookbook to go with it.

Because the glaze of Ibushi Gin uses infrared radiation when heated, smoked dishes are ready in about 15-30 minutes. (*Cooking time may vary depending on the size of the ingredients and the heat level)

.

By removing the smoker insert, the Ibushi Gin can be used as a classic donabe for preparing stews and soups or for braising in the oven. It should be noted that the remaining smoke aroma may interfere with cooking ingredients.

Iga yaki pottery (Iga style) is one of Japan's most prestigious traditional ceramics and is believed to have originated in Iga, Mie Prefecture, in the late 7th century. This donabe is made by the family-run Nagatani-en manufactory, one of the leading producers of authentic Iga Yaki ceramics. They have been intricately handcrafting donabe pots since 1832 and it takes up to two weeks to make a donabe. Nagatani-en's award-winning Igá-Monó Donabe collection is prized by professionals and amateur cooks alike in Japan.

The clay from the Iga region is naturally highly porous and very heat-resistant, giving the pots outstanding cooking properties such as even heat distribution and retention. This traditional donabe only works over an open flame and in the oven.

Each pot is handmade in a fortnight. Each one is unique and small variations are an expression of individuality and desired imperfection in the sense of wabi-sabi, the Japanese concept of aesthetics.

This smoked donabe works only with an open flame and oven.

This smoker comes with sakura/cherry blossom wood chips, which impart a soft aroma.
