DONABE is a contemporary clay pot made for making various types of cooking delicious. It is developed from clay that has undergone research and proved to have high heat tolerance. The far-infrared rays and high-sealability of this pot are great for boiling, simmering, steaming, and also for anhydrous cooking. A handle is connected to the lid in four points, and each handle of the pot itself is connected in three points, which makes it easy and safe to carry. The handles are made from thermostable porcelain with low heat conductivity, therefore safe to touch while the pot is hot. Although advanced technology is required to make such a high-grade pot, it is the result of the know-how and techniques accumulated over the years. The design is intended for the pot to become a piece of art, with its solid unity and architectural shading.
(Description / KAWAI Tatsuya) Launch Year / 2022


The clay pot seems simple, yet it demonstrates high performance as a cooking instrument with far-infrared rays and high sealability. Furthermore, every single component including the handle, pot, or lid, is in place with exquisite balance beyond a cooking instrument, as if it is a piece of sculpture. The product showcases the stability of handles, consideration for safety at high temperature, and environmentally friendly production that reduces the sintering time down to 1/5 of a conventional method. Clearly, this product has undergone thorough considerations from its production, cooking performance, to usability.
