Cook on This: The Iwachu Cast Iron Omelette Pan

cook on this the iwachu cast iron omelette pan

If you consider the fact that the Iwachu Cast Iron Omelette Pan is handcrafted from Nambu iron, which is a material that has been used for over 400 years, that certainly is proof that it has withstood the test of time. In fact, the Iwachu Cast Iron Omelette Pan takes 60 steps to make. The all-purpose pan, which can be used for more than just making omelettes, is designed and painstakingly handcrafted in the traditional nambu tekki style in Morioka, Japan. If you take a look at the pan’s soft curves, it’s clear that it’s thoughtfully made with care. Best of all, its design ensures that the pan’s handle stays cool, so you don’t have to worry about burning your fingers. On top of that, it’s ergonomic, so it fits the shape of your hand perfectly. It’s also low stick, so all you health-conscious folks don’t have to worry about using lots of oil, and you don’t have to deal with all that scrubbing.

According to Luke Murray a Hand-Eye Supply employee contributor, “Like most cast iron pans, these offer even heating and heavy duty durability. But their sort of bumpy, pre-seasoned surface gives a shockingly smooth cooking surface, in a package more ergonomic than any tiny-handled skillet we’ve ever handled. They’re a perfect non-stick pan for your breakfast eggs, with a nice balanced feel and no gross toxic coating.”

Sure, the Iwachu Cast Iron Omelette Pan may be a bit pricey at $120, but just think of it as an investment that will last forever. It’s a staple that every serious at-home cook needs. Plus, you’ll make the most amazing omelettes ever.
