Hi Sanki

Claypot, there are many different type of claypot, i find that the japanese type (the colour is white), it can last longer the traditional china claypot. It is more expensive, I am waiting for sale to stock up another one.

When you buy claypot, you can check how to prepare it before using it. Some recommend soaking it with water from washing rice or just water. Some recommend using it to cook congee first.

Have a lovely weekend.

Hope this helps :) Cheers
