Bistro Mushi Nabe is a modern donabe steamer and all-purpose cooker. It has a beautiful Iga-yaki rustic look with "Iga-mono" etched on the handles. Available in amber and black colors.

It features Far Infrared Rays (FIR) that steams quickly while locking flavors and nutrients inside the food. This allows vegetables to retain their structure and meats to cook tender. The included steam grate allows for healthier cooking, as excess fat and moisture drip through the perforation.

Bistro Mushi Nabe is not an ordinary donabe steamer as it can be heated without liquid. By removing the steam grate, it can be used for sautéing and roasting sweet potatoes, chicken, pork. Just like a classic donabe, it makes soups, stews, and hot pot as well.

Steaming Instructions

  1. Fill donabe with 70% water.
  2. Set steam grate and cover with lid.
  3. Bring to a boil over medium-high or high heat.
  4. Uncover and place ingredients on steam grate
  5. Cover with lid and steam until ingredients are cooked.

Use as cold serveware

Bistro Mushi Nabe can be used as a mini table top "fridge" due to its evaporative cooling effect that keeps heat out, by moisture absorbed and released by the porous clay. Ideal for serving sashimi, fresh vegetables, fruit medley, cold noodles, etc.

  1. Soak all parts with cold water for 3 minutes, then pat dry.
  2. Fill the donabe’s inside base with ice cubes.
  3. Set the steam grate and also layer it with ice cubes.
  4. Arrange ingredients on top
  5. Close the lid
