Rectangular pans like this one are widely used in Japanese households to produce tamagoyaki (Japanese omelette). Tamagoyaki are created by frying beaten egg flavoured with ingredients including dashi, sugar and soy sauce in thin layers that are rolled up before another layer is added to successively build up the omelette.

This frying pan is made from copper by the skilled metal craftspeople at Kōbō Aizawa in Tsubame City, Niigata Prefecture, a region renowned for its metalworking industry. The pan is crafted using 1.5mm thick copper to create the body of the pan, a thickness that exploits the metal’s excellent conducting properties to produce an evenly heated surface. Perfect for cooking an airy, soft tamgoyaki with ease.

This frying pan is for an omelette of 3-4 eggs.

When first using the pan, please oil the interior surface by adding more than the usual amount of oil and warming for a few minutes. Remove the oil and reheat the pan before testing the pan’s heat by dropping a bit of raw egg mixture to the pan. If the egg cooks straight away it is ready to use.

After use, clean with kitchen roll and lightly oil the interior of the pan.

When the pan needs to be washed, use a sponge without detergent, pat dry and add a thin layer of oil. Please keep dry to avoid the copper exterior tarnishing. If any tarnish does appear please use commercial copper cleaner to get rid of it.

Cannot be used with an induction hob, microwave, oven, or dishwasher.

Do not use a scourer or hard materials when cleaning.
