Donabe (土鍋 in Japanese, also refers as "earthenware pot" ) is one of the Japan’s traditional and oldest ceramic cookware. It is made out of special clay and commonly used for hot pot dishes such as shabu-shabu 🍲 (しゃぶしゃぶ - a Japanese nabemono hotpot dish comes with thinly sliced meat and vegetables in hot soup), sukiyaki 🥘 (すき焼き - a Japanese dish that also served in the nabemono style with meat 🥩 that being slowly cooked or simmered at the table) or oden 🍢 (おでん - a Japanese one-pot dish consisting of several ingredients).
In Japan, donabe is still a very popular cookware and it is great for tabletop cooking. Gathering families 👪 and friends together, one pot cooking brings joy and happiness for memorable meals. Having Shabu Shabu at home is actually very very simple and easy.
