Sori Yanagi Cast Iron Grill Pan
Sori Yanagi’s famed Nambu Tekki pan combines traditional Japanese design with a modern sensibility. This iconic pan is crafted from a single piece of extra thick nambu tekki cast iron, a traditional Japanese iron casting technique that dates back to the early 17th century. The result is an all-purpose grilling pan that quickly and evenly distributes heat for creating delicious meals. The slightly curved edge allows for easy pouring while the cast iron fork can be used for both lifting and serving. Equally safe for use on gas, electric, or induction stove tops.
