Nagatani-en, founded in 1832, is the leading producer of Iga-yaki potteries. Nagatani-en’s product has been loved by both professional chefs and home cooks. Each donabe is made by skilled craftsmen with care at Nagatani-en’s facility. It takes about 2 weeks for one donabe to be made. This beaufiful Iga-yaki donabe is not only a great cooking tool, but also makes a great table-top presentation.
