Iga-yaki Earthenware Grill
The origin of Iga ceramics dates back to 1,300 years ago. All Iga-yaki products made by Nagatani-en are hand-crafted with care, so every piece is unique and no two pieces are identical. There are slight variations within the color/ shade, shape/ curve, and patterns, among pieces, and that makes each piece so special.
This uniquely designed Iga-yaki earthenware grill promotes the Far Infrared Rays (FIR– the same effect as how the glowing charcoal cook ingredients without direct flame) when the grill is heated with the flame of the stove. With this effect, the heat built in the grill reaches to the core of each ingredient fast and cooks like the charcoal grill.
Origin: Iga, Japan
Please note the following when using this Clay Grill:
- Set the grill body (bottom part) over the gas stove top. Fill the outer reservoir with water about 80%. Set the top grill on the grill body.
- Heat the grill for about 5 minutes over high heat. Turn the heat down to medium. The grill is ready to cook ingredients. Brush the grill top with oil to prevent certain ingredients from sticking if necessary.
- When the water level of the reservoir becomes too low, fill with more water.
