Donabe Black Rice Pot - Banko Ware

$64.00

Donabe Black Rice Pot cooks up delicious rice without adjusting the heat level. The far-infrared ray effect of Banko-yaki and its high heat storage capacity cook up delicious rice.

Black Rice pots cook rice at higher temperatures than regular donabe pots, which allows heat to convect through the pot, reducing spillovers and cooking rice at a higher temperature than regular donabe pots, resulting in delicious rice.

To cook 2 cups of white rice, heat it over medium heat for about 13 minutes. If it looks like it is about to spill over during cooking, lower the heat to low. Turn off the heat and let the rice steam for 15-20 minutes. Even after the rice cools down, you can enjoy the sticky and tasty rice.
