I love rice cooked in an earthenware pot, so we don't have an automatic rice cooker in our house. The design is warm and visually appealing. This earthenware pot in particular has a flat bottom that is heated for induction heating, so the heat is distributed efficiently. After cooking rice, it can also be used as an ohi-tsu (a kind of soup vessel) by using the attached wooden lid made of Japanese Spanish mackerel. The size of the lid is so versatile that it can be used with ready-made glass lids and steamers.
