What can't it do?

Buckle up—we have lots to tell you about this workhorse from Vermicular. Made in Japan, it’s a three-dimensional induction cooker called a musui-kamado, fitted with an enameled cast-iron pot that sits right inside. Its many, many talents could fill a whole book, but we did our best to be brief. So before you get that chicken roasting, give 'em a gander:

  • Extra precise: The induction base gives you top-notch temperature control along with A+ heat distribution, so no second guessing or double checking here.
  • Locks in the flavor: The cast-iron pot and lid are tailor-made for each other, creating an ultra-tight seal that keeps flavors and moisture in.
  • Sears, sautés & so much more: It’ll give you a picture-perfect brown for all your sears and sautés. And that’s not all—it can slow-cook, braise, stew, steam, and roast with the best of ‘em. (Did we mention it’s a fluffy rice pro? You bet it is.)
  • Proofs & bakes bread: Let it proof your dough to perfection, then move the pot to the oven when it’s time to get baking.
  • A musui master: Another trick up its sleeve? Musui, a “waterless” cooking technique that lets ingredients—rather than extra water or spices—do all the work. (You can thank the seal-tight pot and lid for that.)
  • Oh, the options: Snag the induction base and cast-iron pot together, or snap up the pot all on its own. To up your game even more: Add the magnetic trivet that attaches itself to the bottom of the pot, no hands required.

Love it!
Amazing way to cook! I used it 5 times in the first week....steam roasted beets, rosemary roasted potatoes, minestrone soup, roasted chicken and tortilla espanola. All super easy to make and outstanding results!

Takes some figuring out..
Beautifully made, stunning piece(s) of equipment. Love the way the trivet grabs the pot. Beautiful pot. Takes some time to figure out how to operate. Instructions say to do a careful job seasoning the rims of pot and lid, not clearly instructing to season the entire pot— that should be clarified. (I made the decision to season the pot interior (in addition to the rims)). I am expecting great things from it, but there need to be a lot more recipes and cookbooks specifically for it— so far have used it once and learned that this device doesn’t do just ordinary recipes not designed for it or that not are particularly adapted for it.

Musui-Kamado
We are still getting acquainted. It hasn’t always gone smoothly. The concept of “waterless cooking” is new to me. It comes with an elegant-looking, hard bound cook and instruction book, which in many cases leaves you to figure out how to use the device on your own. The musui’s 3.9 quart capacity limits how much you can cook at one time. I imagine most American cooks would prefer something larger. It has been a little hit-or-miss in our household. Still, I like it very much, and with each use it, it becomes easier. It is elegant and beautiful and fun, a great tool in our kitchen quiver. I’ve had the best results, adapting the recipes of others, Asha Gomez’s “Weeknight Fancy Chicken and Rice”, for example, from her My Two Souths.
