A beautifully handcrafted piece of earthenware, made by Nagatani-en with clay from the Iga region of Japan. This region is located in what was once the bed of Lake Biwa during the prehistoric period, and the mineral deposits make earthenware from this region more porous than most. The result is a pottery with higher heat resistance, a quality for which Iga donabes are renowned. By removing the steam grate, the Donabe Steamer, "Mushi Nabe", it can work as an all-purpose classic-style donabe to enjoy hot pot, braising, etc.
Pssst. enjoy it table side! Just like doing a Japanese-style one-pot meal, have all the ingredients ready on the table, and enjoy savoring freshly steamed dishes as you cook! (*You will need a portable gas burner for cooking tabletop.)

Each single "tooth" of this palm-sized copper Grater is carved out and pointed upwards by craftsmen that uses the same technique from the Edo period. Because it is hand made, the shape and length of each tooth is slightly distinct, but this actually helps intensify the overall grating effect. When a ceramic or steel Graters is used, the ginger or garlic gets crushed causing the vegetable fiber and juice to separate. The tin plated copper Grater prevents the ginger from being crushed, keeping it fresh and perfect in taste! Tortoise and Crane are the symbols of long life and happiness in Japanese culture.
