Hot pot, or nabe, is an essential during the cooler months, but sometimes it can leave you with a load of leftovers. Luckily, Thanko's one-person hot pot device is ideal for making small serves. The handy cooking gadget is compact, easily portable and can hold up to 1 litre of liquid, giving you plenty of cooking space to work with. There's also a voltage selector meaning you can adjust your nabe to use in other countries outside of Japan.
It also comes with a steamer tray which can be used to steam dumplings and other food items. To make your hot pot, just dump all your favourite veggies and ingredients into a tasty broth, set the cooker on one of the two available settings and voilà – dinner, sorted.
