A Shabu Shabu Hot Pot Recommendation

I just picked up this Sanyo Hot Pot for a family Yankee swap and it turned out to be one of the more popular gifts, getting passed around our 8 member family 4 times! It doesn't come with any wire skimmers, so I picked up a set of those as well.

I also got these stainless steel wire skimmers for $15 which you'll need to fish your cooked meats and vegetables from the broth. Between these two, you'll be just under your $100 limit!

Sanyo HPS-MC3 3-in-1 Nonstick Electric Multi-Cooker (Price: $72)
  • Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars from 17 customer reviews

  • For grilling, steaming, and slow cooking

  • Adjustable temperature from keep warm to 460 degrees F

  • Non-stick titanium-coated 4-1/2-quart cooking pot and grill plate

  • Glass lid with cool-touch handles and dishwasher-safe parts
comment I got the Sanyo for my Mother's birthday. Used it last weekend: great pot, heated up quickly, kept the broth at a consistent low boil, is solidly built, looks nice and is large enough that we didn't get in each other's way (6 total people cooking). It's going to be a hot pot year! - marion 9 years, 1 month ago
comment I have the Sanyo shabu shabu hot pot and love the way it performs and the way it looks. The cord is a little short, but we would need an extension cord to reach the center of the table anyways, so not a big deal. - mitch 8 years, 11 months ago

Shabu shabu hot pot comparison

shabu shabu sauces
My husband and I had three couples over for Shabu Shabu this past weekend. We had both the Sanyo (ours) and the Sunpentown (borrowed from my brother) on the table and can say that they both performed excellently, keeping the broths boiling at all times, even at less than maximum settings with the pots filled with meats and vegetables.

For fish and meat, we cooked up beef, pork, shrimp, scallops and fish balls. The beef and pork was a special "shabu cut" which was thin, maybe twice as thick as a deli meat would be cut.

We also had baby bok choy, enoki mushrooms and watercress and finished the evening by adding udon noodles and vermicelli bean thread noodles (the ones in the pink netting bag). Each person made a custom dipping sauce using their preferred combination of soy sauce, sesame oil, cilantro (my husband's favorite), chopped garlic, scallions, chili garlic sauce and the pictured Bull Head Barbecue Sauce (look for the one with the little happy cows :)

Although both pots performed superbly, I personally like the look of the Sanyo a little better. One tip, we ended up plugging each pot into two different outlets because running them both on one power strip kept tripping the circuit breaker of the strip we were using!

More information about What is Shabu-Shabu?

Shabu-shabu (しゃぶしゃぶ) is a traditional Japanese version of hot pot (a Japanese soup or stew). To cook, you submerge thinly sliced pieces of meats and vegetables in a hot broth and serve with dipping sauces.

Shabu-shabu (which translates literally to swish-swish, the sound made as the cooking food is stirred) is typically made with thinly sliced beef, though many people also serve lobster, duck, pork, crab and chicken. Vegetables often used are nori (an edible seaweed), Chinese cabbage, chrysanthemum leaves, carrots, onions, enokitake and shiitake mushrooms. As well, udon noodles are a common addition.

Cooked meat and vegetables are typically served with a ponzu or "goma" sesame seed sauce.
