Iron frying pan with bamboo handle and stainless hardware.
All models are manufactured with the patent OXYNIT and are 1.6mm thick. These pans are nitrided, which increases hardness and aids in resisting oxidation. They are then sandblasted to make the surface microscopically porous, allowing them to season themselves as oil is introduced through cooking. Iron may transfer to food in using a traditional cast iron ( good! ), and so it also does with these pans.
Because these are so thin, they're easy to handle, heat quickly, and retain heat evenly. They work for both IH stovetop and gas range and are excellent for everyday use.
While OXYNIT is used to prevent rust, these pans are not exempt from corrosion and will not tolerate mistreatment. Hand wash, hand dry and store dry, and for the love of Céline Dion, do not put in the dishwasher. Expect your pan to develop a handsome patina over time with use.
Made in Japan.
