When it comes to fry pans, saucepans, dutch ovens and stock pots, we’re experts. But for some of us, these specialty pans may not be as familiar. Though these pans may not be in your kitchen currently, you may want to start making room. Because once you learn how convenient and versatile some can be, you’ll be incorporating them into your weekly cooking routine immediately!


Japanese Omelet Pan


The innovative Japanese Omelet Pan (Makiyakinabe) is designed for tamagoyaki, a Japanese rolled egg omelet commonly eaten in bento boxes or as a topping for nigiri sushi.


Tamagoyaki, which translates as ‘fried eggs’, is made by rolling together several thin layers of egg in a rectangle shaped pan.  And as one of the easiest and most versatile side dishes, tamagoyaki is packed with protein and is served around the word. In Japan, the strength of a kitchen is based off of the quality of its tamagoyaki.


Our Swiss Diamond Japanese Omelet Pan is made with a thick, cast aluminum construction that cooks the egg layers quickly and evenly. Our unique diamond reinforced coating ensures truly nonstick performance, which makes for the perfect tamagoyaki.
