We all know about cooking on charcoal but have you every thought about cooking in charcoal? The craftspeople of Asahi Kogyo from Ayase, a small town in Kanagawa Prefecture, have been processing carbon for over 50 years and came up with the amazing Ayasemono Sumi Nabe Charcoal Pots. Thanks to the material, these two pots have high thermal conductivity - much more so than iron or steel - so heat is distributed equally everywhere and cooks your food as if in a furnace, all thanks to far-infrared radiation effect made possible by the charcoal. The results need to be tasted to be believed.
The Ayasemono Sumi Nabe Charcoal Pots come in two very convenient sizes with different capacities. You can use them on any gas stove or IH cooker, or even over an open fire, making them suitable also for camping. They work equally well for any kind of food - fish, meat, or vegetables - and keep in all the juices. You can even use them as rice cookers - if you are willing to put aside your automatic rice cooker and opt for doing things the hard way!
