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."

I saw this item while browsing for Christmas gifts. I fell in love with the idea and purchased one for myself. I was very excited to use it, however my rice was sticky, not fluffy. I will not give up and will try again, but I am dissappointed.

This crock stays out we use it so much

This is one item in the kitchen that if something unfortunate happened to it, I would literally order another immediately. 1.5x broth to 1 part rice and steam on a standard sauce pan. (I start on medium heat and reduce to medium low after steam is strong). Add a dash of salt and spice to taste into the broth. Perfect in 55 minutes...Everytime! This can cook up to about 2 to 2.5 cups of rice max. Our normal is 1 to 1.5 cups.

Replaces microwave when heating leftovers!

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!

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.
