10 FRYING PAN JIU
FUJITA METAL MFG CO.,LTD. (Osaka Prefecture)
Bringing a stylish flair to real cooking
With a detachable handle for versatile use
FUJITA METAL MFG's 10 FRYING PAN JIU is a stylish iron frying pan with a detachable handle. The name is derived from the sound the pan makes when frying (“jiu”) and the number it makes when the handle is lined up next to the pan (“10”). Made from Kurokawa sheet iron, the frying pan is designed with a deep-set outer ridge shaped like a dish, allowing you to eat directly from the pan without any trouble.
Developer FUJITA METAL MFG is a long-established manufacturer of metal household products based in Yao City, Osaka Prefecture. Senior Managing Director Fujita oversees product development, developing numerous original iron frying pans in collaboration with well-known chefs, and providing special made-to-order products.
Fluorine coating is typically used on aluminum frying pans. However, with parental fear over possible fluorine ingestion, and growing enthusiasm among cooking hobbyists, demand for iron frying pans that can be safely used over long periods of time is growing every year. Production numbers at FUJITA METAL MFG have increased two-fold each year. As part of efforts to expand development, the company partnered with a product designer to create 10 FRYING PAN JIU. Rather than fall into a fixed way of doing things as a manufacturer, lots of new ideas were used to develop the product over a period of 18 months. Particular attention was paid to the one-touch detachable handle, which was finally completed after a significant prototyping period. Moving forward, the company is expanding its product line, designing 10 optional parts to coincide with its name.
A unique production method specially tailored for user friendliness, with a easy-grip, detachable handle
FUJITA METAL MFG uses a special hard temper processing method, in which the iron is soaked in olive oil and held over a high temperature burner. By performing this time-consuming process in-house (a task that is typically handled by the user), the frying pan ships ready to use immediately after purchase. The handle has been expertly designed to allow for simple, single-handed detachment by sliding the handle forward. This interlocking slide method was developed in-house, and a patent is currently pending.
A dual-function pan for both grilling and serving
Prepare your meal over the grill, then remove the handle to use the pan as a serving dish. The iron retains the heat from the grill, and you won’t have to deal with worrying about the presentation or washing dishes. With excellent heat conductivity, the frying pan is perfect for grilled or sautéed foods such as Hamburg steaks and vegetable stir fries. The depth of flavor only increases with repeated use, allowing you to enjoy a long period of transformation unique to iron pans. Prevent rust and extend the iron’s lifespan by heating the metal over the burner and wiping moisture off after use.
FUJITA METAL MFG is run by Senior Managing Director Fujita and his father. Fujita's two younger brothers are involved as well. Together they work to make metal household hoods. As a leader in the industry, FUJITA METAL MFG is mastering the art of frying pans while harnessing the benefits of a family-run business.
