Oribegama Earthenware Rice Cooker / 2-3 Servings

The village of Marubashira in Iga Prefecture has been renowned for the production of pottery since the Nara Period. At the Doraku kiln craftsmen have been producing earthenware vessels on a wheel for over seven generations. The kilns Oribegama pot has a simple rustic charm that reflects the atmosphere of the “old fashioned“ lifestyle of a quiet village surrounded by rice fields.

The clay of the region is particularly suited to production of cooking pots because of the organic matter it contains which leaves the pottery porous and heat resistant when fired at high temperatures. The cookers round shape provides efficient distribution and the wood lid acts naturally to adjust the level of moisture during cooking.

The technique of medome (sealing) is strongly recommended for these pots before first use.
