Slow and steady wins the race.

This Japanese clay pot, also known as a donabe, is a dream for cooking up slow, simmered dishes. The clay retains heat, meaning you can bring it from stovetop to table and keep your food warm. Or bring a portable stove to the table and cook your braises and simmers right there. This Hario donabe brings a modern twist to the traditional earthenware dish with its heat-resistant glass lid (keep an eye on what’s cooking) and silicone lid handle.

Oh, and be sure to check out this Japanese Rice Pot - it sports the same functional-yet-beautiful clay and glass design.
