Iwachu Japanese Cast-Iron Oval Pot

Traditional nabe cooking pot

They are too heavy and impractical for many people, but those who take their cooking seriously always have a couple of cast-iron pots in their collection: between their ability to work well with different heat sources (including an open flame), their excellent temperature retention that goes well beyond that of any other material, their low price compared to modern alloys, and their ease of maintenance, these pots are the stars of your kitchen. And in the case of the Iwachu Japanese Cast-Iron Oval Pot, for two more reasons: looks and tradition!

Starting with the latter, the Iwachu Japanese Cast-Iron Oval Pot comes from the craftspeople of a workshop in Morioka in northern Japan, specializing in cast-iron ware since 1901. This means you don't just get an 1.5-liter pot but a genuine piece of Japanese cooking utensil history. And then comes its appearance: simple elegant lines combined with the iron's texture and black color make this 34 x 19 x 11.5 cm (13.4 x 7.5 x 4.5") pot a truly beautiful item that you can use for serving as well as cooking!
