Meshi-nabe - Ceramic Black - Rice Cooker Pot

SKU: TSKZ10101 W180 D193 H119


When rice is cooked in an earthenware pot heated up thoroughly, the rice comes out fluffy to the core, sweet, and fragrant. Because it also cooks faster than in an electric rice cooker, you can shorten the cooking time. First, after rinsing the rice, soak it in water for 30 to 40 minutes. It is best not to soak it in the earthenware pot because the pot containing water might crack when it is put on the stove. After draining the water through a colander, transfer the rice to the earthenware pot. Add water equal to the amount of rice, cover, and cook on medium heat to a boil. The trick to tasty rice is to boil it substantially. Once the pot starts to steam vigorously, reduce the heat to simmer. It is better to simmer because the earthenware pot cooks rice thoroughly while maintaining a constant temperature.

After cooking for 15 minutes, check the remaining water. If you see large bubbles coming out of the surface of the rice, simmer a little longer. Once all of the moisture has evaporated, remove from the heat and let it steam for about 10 minutes. When you open the lid of the earthenware pot, the sweet scent of rice fills the kitchen space instantly. Mix the rice with a rice scoop in a cutting motion to allow any remaining water to evaporate. Your delicious rice is ready.

Meshi-nabe was designed by Drill Design. It was well-received by their family members when the two designers gifted it for a wedding. After that, a potter of Kasama-ware crafted Meshi-nabe for Time & Style to commercialize and sell it. Each Meshi-nabe is crafted by hand on a potter’s wheel.

Ceramics have a soft, warm appearance. The complex gradations of the glaze and the simple beauty of the handiwork is the character of ceramics, and no two pieces are the same. Since ceramic wares absorb water to some degree, they tend to acquire texture and a more nuanced appearance the longer they are used.


Ceramics are made from coarse clay, and absorb water because of their porous finish. Ceramic dishes are dishwasher safe. Please take care when placing them in the dishwasher to prevent them from touching each other. We recommend that you prewash ceramics carefully to prevent residues from getting into the material. Although it is safe to use these dishes in the microwave, sudden temperature changes may occur cracks. This is particularly true for ceramics, which contain moisture that causes the temperature to raise quickly from within, increasing the possible damage. Neither type of dish is oven-safe, nor should they be placed directly on the stove. In addition, please be careful not to pour cold water over hot porcelain or ceramic dishes, as this may result in damage.


Ceramics made of rough clay easily absorb soup and oil, which may cause stains and unpleasant odors. Please follow these instructions to prevent this. Prior to initial use, pour enough water to cover the dishes in a pot. Add a spoon of flour to the mix, and put your dishes into the pot. Simmer over low heat for 20 minutes. The gaps between the clay parti­cles are filled with the starchy material, preventing the dish from becom­ing stained and smelly. Let the dishes cool naturally in the pot, then wash and let them dry well. In addition, soak ceramic dishes in water for 5 to 10 minutes prior to arranging food on them. Take care not to leave your dishes in water after use; wash them as soon as possible, and let them dry completely before storing.

Although they require extra care, the best thing about Japanese ceramics is the way they gradually change to reflect their use.
