siroca Ouchi Irori Hearth Cooker

Tabletop hearth-style cooking appliance

You have certainly heard the very elderly saying how back in their day everything was much better – including the taste of food. The funny thing is that there is one type of cooking that was indeed much better back in their day and that's hearth cooking, a method very hard to reproduce in our modern homes. That doesn't mean we have to completely abandon the idea, though: you can bring the Japanese hearth to a modern home with this siroca Ouchi Irori Hearth Cooker!

The secret to hearth cooking is that the pot needs to be sunken in the heat source so all its parts are heated equally. You cannot do that with a modern stove but you can with the siroca Ouchi Irori Hearth Cooker, either using the deep plate it comes with or, if you want to get even closer to the real thing, using the optional donabe earthenware pot. Compact enough not to hog your tabletop, and versatile enough to cook pots, stews, soups, or even skewers using the special accessories it comes with, this is a great way to discover a way of cooking you thought lost forever!
