Classic Iga-yaki Donabe, "Hakeme (Brush)"

Authentic Iga-Yaki pottery, by Nagatani-en from Iga, Japan.

Iga-yaki is one of Japan’s most highly-regarded traditional ceramics, which is said to have originated in Iga, Mie-Prefecture in late 7th Century. Nagatani-en, founded in 1832, is the leading producer of Iga-yaki potteries. Nagatani-en’s product has been loved by both professional chefs and home cooks.


This is a very classic-style donabe which you can use for many different kinds of dishes. In Japan, almost every household has at least one classic-style donabe and use it to cook a variety of hot pot dishes including shabu shabu and sukiyaki on tabletop with your family and friends. The classic-style donabe is also ideal for stewing or braising. Because Iga clay has the higher heat-resistance, you can cook with it over gas range or in the oven.


Sophisticated design

The shallow inner body has the beautiful swirl design with the rustic shiny touch.

"Wabi-sabi" rustic beauty

The glaze on the surface has the classic rustic Iga-yaki look. The bumps and spots which sometimes look like unfinished or small cracks are what we appreciate as "Wabi-sabi"…esthetic of incomplete or non-perfect character.
