You should choose the best pan/pot for sukiyaki because it’s a representative homemade dish for special occasions that everybody loves. This sukiyaki pan can even upgrade your usual homemade sukiyaki.
This Nambu ironware sukiyaki pan has handle and fine concavity and convexity on the surface, which is unique to cast ironware and provides an even more sophisticated look.
Equipped with a flat base, the pan is compatible with induction heating or any cooktop. This pan with good heat efficiency will conduct the heat to the ingredients through its entire surface.
Cast ironware can maintain more heat and keep inside temperature even when you put lots of ingredients, and can make the ingredients soft, fluffy and rich in flavor.
High quality cast ironware will gradually give out divalent iron while used over time, which is good for iron supplementation and healthy to your body.
Use & Care
Nambu ironware is very heavy, and should be handled with special care. Either rapid cooling or dropping will cause cracks or even more damage.
The pan and handle will be extremely hot, and make sure to use a pot holder.
Non detergent washing is recommended. Just washing the pan with a scrub brush in warm water will make oiling easier and prevent the pan burning next time. After washing the pan, just boil it with no water in and thoroughly dry it.
In case the pan gets rusted, remove rust with a steel scrubbing brush, and then apply a thin layer of oil before storage. However, iron rust is harmless to your health and you can keep using the pan.
"Nambu cast ironware is technically divided into 2 types though both are called the same: One is originated from Morioka City, where the Nambu clan built Morioka Castle about 400 years ago. They made numerous efforts for cultural development of their fief, inviting artisans from Kyoto to promote tea ceremonies. As a result, production of cast ironware for tea ceremonies started in the area.
The other type is originated from Mizusawa, Oshu City, located in the southern part (“Nambu” in Japanese) of Iwate Prefecture, where the Fujiwara clan established the Golden Culture and developed cast ironware."
