Tabletop Cookware

Japanese hot pot dish called Nabemono (or simply Nabe) is a hearty wintertime specialty, in which fish, seafood, meat and/or vegetables are cooked in unseasoned fish broth and kept hot at the dining table by portable stoves.

Nabemono are usually served into Tonsui bowls and eaten with a sauce sometimes called tare, literally "dipping".

Pots are usually placed in the center of dining tables and are shared by multiple people. This is considered the most sociable way to eat with friends and family.
