You can cook with or without the grate or lid. With the lid on, the effects of the far-infrared radiation (FIR) and the porous clay cooks evenly to the core of the food, and seals all the good flavors inside. The meat and fish become succulent just like they are grilled over charcoal. Even after turning off the heat, Fukkura-san retains the heat very well and the ingredients continue to cook with the carry-over heat for the next 5-10 minutes. Grate can be used to roast vegetables, etc. or for smoking if you put the smoking chips under the grate. The skillet of Fukkura-san can also be heated empty (with or without the lid on), unlike other kinds of donabe. Fukkura-san is very versatile. It also works as a tabletop "mini fidge", or use just the lid as a serving bowl.
