Strikingly graceful in its simplicity, a special-grade iron allows this pan to conduct and distribute heat more efficiently than standard cast iron.
The blackened surfaces of the pans are made from a mixture of vinegar, tea tannins, fruit juices, and raw natural lacquer, which are fired onto the iron surface.
This blackening process, called o-ha-guro, creates a rust resistant surface and a foundation for seasoning. Perfect for browning, searing and frying on the stovetop as well as baking in the oven.

While the pan is still warm, clean with coarse salt and oil to kill bacteria and scour off food particles. Finish with a natural fiber brush under hot running water, and dry immediately for storage.
