An Overview On Korean Cooking Stone Bowls
Because Korean cooking stone bowls are porous, they are able to retain heat for an extended period of time. This is an especially welcome quality during the cold winter months, as food tends to cool off much more quickly. In addition to traditional Korean dishes, these bowls work extremely well at cooking soups, stews, rice and even casseroles.
If you’re in the market for a Korean cooking stone bowl, check the construction of the dish first. You want the bowl to be free of lead and any harmful toxins. Many of these bowls are made from a premium ceramic stone that comes from a fine clay that has been glaze-fired twice. Then there are those, like the Spiceberry Home Large Korean Cooking Stone Bowl, 1-Quart, which have a more elegant appeal to them, as they are forged from granite.
Check that the Korean cooking stone bowl comes with a trivet. This is extremely important, as the bowl will be too hot to set down on a table or kitchen countertop. The Angoo Premium Ceramic Korean Stone Bowl comes with a complimentary silicone mat. Other models are available with wooden trivets that have a rustic look to them or plastic trivets that are designed to resemble the bowl.
Flip the bowl upside down and look for an anti-slip bottom if the bowl is listed as being safe to use on the stove. For example, the Eutuxia Dolsot Ttukbaegi Korean Cooking Stone Bowl has built-in cross cutouts that allow the bowl to rest perfectly on the stove’s grates. You don’t want to risk the bowl sliding around and falling off the grate, causing a big spill.
Keep an eye out for any extra features, such as the addition of a lid or a complementary set of cooking gloves. The Crazy Korean Korean Cooking Stone Bowl comes in an attractive gift box that makes it an excellent wedding or housewarming gift. It’s even available in three different sizes with or without a lid.
DWYM Fun Fact
Korean cooking stone bowls are most widely used to make Korean bibimbap. The name actually means “mixed rice” and the dish is meant to provide a full meal in one pot, somewhat like the American casserole. This delicious meal isn’t actually that old. In fact, the first time a recipe for bibimbap was published was in the 19th century cookbook “Siuijeonseo.”
Typically, Korean bibimbap has a layer of rice at the bottom of the stone bowl. The rice is topped with some form of beef, sautéed vegetables, several sauces and gochujang, which is a type of chili pepper paste. A cracked egg is then added to the top of the dish before it is served. Before digging into this mouth-watering meal, you’ll need to mix all of the ingredients together.
The Korean Cooking Stone Bowl Buying Guide
- Stone bowls crack when exposed to sudden temperature changes. Take care not to place cold water inside the bowl until it has completely cooled off.
- Some natural stone bowls require the consumer to season them before use. It is important to note that the stone may turn a darker color after seasoning. This is completely normal.
- Always read the Korean cooking stone bowl’s product care guide carefully, as most of these bowls require a great deal of maintenance. For example, you may be required to cook your pot inside a larger pot of saltwater for an hour before you use it. Other models need to be seasoned with an oil, like sesame oil, before you cook your first meal in them.
- When heating up your Korean cooking stone bowl, you must do so gradually. This is especially important the first few times you use the pot. A few cracks, even when using the bowl correctly, are common. You can coat the cracks with oil to prevent any sauces from seeping through.
- Be careful when handling the stone bowl after you’ve cooked a meal in it. It will hold heat for as long as two hours after you have removed it from the oven. You don’t want to grab the bowl and end up getting burned.
- Pay attention to the Korean cooking stone bowl’s cleaning instructions. Some are listed as safe to place in the dishwasher, while others must be washed by hand.
- Korean cooking stone bowls are available for purchase at several different price points. The Crazy Korean Korean Cooking Stone Bowl is among the most affordable, as it doesn’t come with a lid. Both, the Angoo Premium Ceramic Korean Stone Bowl and the Eutuxia Dolsot Ttukbaegi Korean Cooking Stone Bowl are moderately priced. You’ll pay the most for the Spiceberry Home Large Korean Cooking Stone Bowl, 1-Quart, which is larger in size, includes a lid and is made out of an attractive granite.
