Why give a boring casserole dish when you can gift a handcrafted donabe? This classic Japanese clay pot is ideal for shabu shabu, but also works well for braises, stews and curries. For the more advanced home cook, a specialized donabe rice cooker produces perfect, fluffy rice without the aid of an unsightly countertop appliance. Multipurpose, unconventional and beautiful: It’s everything a standout holiday gift should be.
