This deep, wide-bellied, short necked pot, crafted by Ohio Stoneware, is perfect for fermenting Kimchi or cooking bean-based dishes! The relatively narrow mouth of the beanpot minimizes evaporation and heat loss, while the deep, wide, thick-walled body of the pot facilitates long, slow cooking times.
Originating in Korea, kimchi is a lip-smackingly tasty, vitamin packed dish of fermented vegetables. Typically, the season determines what type of vegetables are fermented, but there are HUNDREDS of varieties of Kimchi. The most common ingredients are napa cabbage, radishes, scallions, and cucumbers. But that's not all! The pot's design makes it ideal for slow-cooking bean dishes and other savory, slow-cooked meals.
Pots filled with food for fermentation purposes should be kept in cool, dry environments which allow the vegetables or fruits to ferment naturally. The kimchi pot is safe and easy to clean due to lead-free glazes. It is also oven, microwave, and dishwasher safe.
