    Full of flavour in every scoop of rice! The hot stone bowl keeps everything warm throughout the meal.

    Hi Wiffy,
    Where to buy the stone bowl? Can also replace with other type of normal bowl?

      I bought it from Korean supermarket at Bedok Mall basement. But you can use any suitable size bowl (even a claypot), no need a special hot stone pot.
