It is made by traditional handwork in Sado Island, Niigata Prefecture, by making use of straws after harvesting rice.
It changes over time, into a profound dark brown. How about some warmth of a handmade product on your everyday dining table?
Dear Shokunin team, thank you very much! The goods arrived super fast to me in Germany. Very well and safely packaged. I am very enthusiastic about the goods! I did not write to you immediately, because I wanted to test the goods first. Of course, I immediately saw that everything is of the best quality. I bought the grater: it is very sharp as desired and does its job very well. The two Ogasawara pans are perfect - it doesn't get any better than that. I found your website because I own an Iwachu omelet pan that is phenomenally good and I wanted to buy two more just as good pans and didn't find them in Germany. Your website encouraged me to buy the Ogasawara pans. They are just as excellent: super fast I had them baked in, nothing sticks, they are light, I really use them now all the time: on the induction hob and in the oven. I've been cooking with gas all my life, but my landlord now wants electricity. Hence the induction cooker. and best of all: the pans are so smooth at the bottom that they do not scratch the induction fields. I am very happy to have found your site and grateful that you ship to Germany. It's such great work by craftsmen that I haven't found here yet. (Unless they are old things, but unfortunately I had to leave the old things in the household of my now separated husband.) I am happy with all your products, including the coasters, which will probably last my whole life. Please say a big thank you to your team and the craftsmen and please keep the opportunity to order from you with shipping to Germany! Many greetings, health and all well-being, always good food and peace I wish.... I order safely again :-) I've never been to Japan, I only ordered because I think the quality is so great and now I'm getting more and more really keen to come to Japan. Your products impress me - thank you very much for that, all the best.
