Oigen foundry was established in 1852. Utilizing traditional Nambu Tekki from Japan's Iwate prefecture. Nambu tekki ironware crafting stems from over 400 years ago and still to this day is produced in the same traditional way. Nambu tekki was also the very first artifact to be recognized as Japan's "Traditional artifact." Oigen foundry uses 75% recycled materials to make their cast iron cookware.
We are extremely proud to be the first retailer in Canada to introduce this incredible cookware. Cast iron is the best thing to cook your food in and Oigen produces some of the finest in the world.
Sukiyaki is a traditional dish served in Japan. It utilizes thinly sliced meat, veg and tofu slowly cooked table side in a light dashi based broth. We also love this pan for steam frying Gyoza - all class.
The "JOTO" finish on these pans create a greyish tone and will slowly fade to a deep black with proper seasoning and care.
Please refer to our cast iron care news section for proper maintenance. With care, these pans will last a lifetime.
Also available, Tawashi brushes for cleaning.
