We bought this about a year ago, and it has been a game changer in our kitchen. The pot itself is very pretty, making it nice to display both on the table or when it's stored away not in use. It is our first ever venture into donabes and it has made cooking so much fun. This size is good for 2 people, or approximately 4 servings. We've used it for a myriad of dishes and it really does make a difference to the flavour and experience of cooking Japanese food. Would make as a lovely gift, especially a housewarming or wedding gift. Cannot recommend enough!
