The lid seals tightly allowing the smoke to stay inside and flavor the ingredients. The donabe glaze creates the Far Infrared Radiation (FIR) when heated allowing perfectly smoked dishes in about 30 minutes. You’ll only need a small amount of smoke chips (Japanese Sakura wood chips provided) to notice the smoky flavor permeate your ingredients. Wonderful for cooking meats, seafood, mushrooms, vegetables, etc…
