The following frying pan for making rolled eggs, made of copper, is Nakamura Douki's flagship product among their other pots and frying pans which are made in the downtown of Tokyo for four generations.
It is a masterpiece cherished by chefs at nationally famous Japanese restaurants and sushi restaurants.
The frying pan is formed using a thick copper board, and as its surface is coated with tin, it has high thermal conductivity and heat-retaining ability, equally distributing the heat through the pan, hardly developing uneven burning or scorching.
The finished product would recall the nostalgic taste that one might have experienced at the breakfast of a Japanese-style inn.
Rather than continuously replacing cheap, Teflon-coated frying pans for making rolled eggs, how about a tool for lifelong use?
Two sizes available
As a guide, if using a middl-sized egg, 2 to 3 eggs would fit "S" and about 4 eggs for would fit "L". We recommend "S" for customers living alone or with another person, and we recommend "L" for customers living with their family.
