Steaming Hot

Modeled after the pots used in China's Yunnan province, this stoneware rice cooker by Todd Johnson is highlighted by a speckled glaze and carved details. Simply place the pot over a heated saucepan of water. As the water boils, the steam begins to rise up through the central spout, then becomes trapped by the lid, cooking your rice to perfection. You can even use the pot to heat up leftovers and prepare easy one-pot meals. Handmade in Asheville, North Carolina.

Made in North Carolina

Inspired by Asheville's vibrant food culture, Todd Johnson creates meticulously handcrafted pots for people who care about food. With forms inspired both by his travels in Asia and the venerable North Carolina pottery tradition, and colors and textures reflecting the mountains and rivers of Southern Appalachia, he is constantly honing his craft to create pots that balance beauty and usefulness.

"Making pottery is satisfying in a way that's unique in my experience," he says. "It engages so many different aspects of the mind. It's meditative, meaning it requires being engaged in the moment. You have to learn to observe very closely with both your eyes and your hands. And then there's the technical aspect, where you're applying math and the scientific method, formulating glazes, firing. Being able to employ all that stuff in creating something beautiful is immensely satisfying."

Replaces microwave when heating leftovers!

By 

from Rochester, NY

Verified Buyer

Comments about UncommonGoods Stoneware Rice Cooker and Steamer:

This is great for heating up left overs instead of using the microwave. It heats up food with steam only and therefore does not dry it out. Yesterday I heated up corned beef, cabbage, potatoes and carrots. So moist, so delicious!

I have also cooked quinoa in it. Quinoa came out fluffy, cooked evenly and delicious. You can check on doneness by just lifting the lid and it does not alter cooking time or efficiency.

Looking forward to cooking rice in it as it was originally intended to cook. I bought this after searching for a rice cooker that was not teflon coated. So glad Uncommon Goods offers this beautiful and utilitarian stoneware vessel!

Comments about UncommonGoods Stoneware Rice Cooker and Steamer:

I have been struggling to cook rice on my new gas stove and have failed with every pot & method I tried until I got this pot! My rice is PERFECT every time and my vegetables are steamed perfectly!! I love it so much, this is my second pot I ordered. I don't want to be without one if my original one should break.

A Steamy Love Affair

By 

from Houston, Texas

Verified Buyer

Comments about UncommonGoods Stoneware Rice Cooker and Steamer:

I am having an absolute steamy love affair with this rice steamer! Not only is it a perfect vehicle for steaming rice and reheating leftovers..it's an art piece. Made In America (which is becoming ever and ever so hard to find). My brown..and red rices have come out absolutely perfect. I came back to buy 4 more for friends and family, but they are on backorder. I plan on putting my order in anyway - because it is that terrific!

Amazing and Beautiful!

By 

from Ny ny

Verified Buyer

Comments about UncommonGoods Stoneware Rice Cooker and Steamer:

I got this for myself because I love rice and thought this was so pretty.... I HAD to have it.

I've only used it twice to cook rice and chicken and veggies. The first time everything turned out soggy (but w a delicious flavor) and the second time I just added less water and everything turned out beautifully! I love this because it is easy and the flavored from steaming really turn out amazingly and infuse everything that is in the pot.
