KAKOMI, an Occasion
to Gather Around
Bring together vibrant ingredients
carefully cultivated by farmers.
Welcome the season with an
entertaining meal. Enjoy good food
and converse around one table.
Donabe, the traditional Japanese clay pot, has long
been what calls people to gather and connect with its
style of ‘cooking at the table as you eat’. Traditionally
in Japan, clay pot dishes are a seasonal favorite for
the autumn and winter. To introduce clay pot cooking
to diverse lifestyles and make it enjoyable throughout
the year, KAKOMI was developed with a fresh design
suitable in both form and function for a modern and
eclectic lifestyle. Find joy in sharing delicious moments
with KAKOMI.
Interview with Fumie Shibata
KINTO collaborated with designer Fumie Shibata to
achieve a user-friendly design that integrates into the
modern daily life.
“Since home dining these days in Japan is influenced
by many different cultures, I wanted to design a clay
pot that goes well with any menu. I worked towards
something that blends in well with people's daily lives
today rather than a traditional style clay pot. For the rice
cooker, I designed the surface of the lid flat in contrast
to the round shape of the pot. This gives it a degree
of sharpness and a modern look. For the donabe, I

throughout the year.”

For Spring
Steamed recipes with
fresh vegetables
KAKOMI IH donabe comes with
a steam plate. Steaming allows
you to enclose the rich taste and
nutrients of ingredients without
using oil. Make a satisfying meal
with vibrant spring vegetables
and add citrus or herbs for extra
flavor and aroma.
For Summer
Ethnic inspired pot
dishes full of flavor
The pot has a low water
absorption rate, so moisture
that can cause odors and stains
do not seep in. Ethnic inspired
recipes give you energy in the
summer with flavorful spices and
refreshing seasonings.
