At Shu’s Pottery in Taipei, fourth-generation potters consider form and function the key to the success of all their ceramics. The Nest Pot, produced in small batches with time-honored pottery methods, is the classic example of this ideal. The deep, roomy, lidded vessel moves easily from oven or gas stove to table with the aid of the unique nest-like stainless steel trivet. In our kitchen, we were impressed with its beauty, craftsmanship and remarkable ability to retain heat, thanks to a unique combination of potter’s clay and gravel sand. We find the pot incredibly versatile: Use it to sauté, simmer, stew, steam, cook rice or even bake bread and roast small poultry (we fit a whole chicken in during testing). Thanks to its unique material, the pot heats very evenly. The set includes the trivet, pot and a secure-fitting lid, all in a giftable box. Hand-washing the pot is surprisingly easy, thanks to the thick matte black glaze that resists sticking.
We test everything we sell. Here’s how we’d use this.
Use the Nest Pot to sauté, simmer, stew, steam, cook rice or even bake bread and roast small poultry (we fit a whole chicken in during testing).
