Iron Rectangle Pan
This iron and teak egg pan is a traditional Japanese egg pan with an entirely modern look and feel. Designed by the famed Japanese industrial designer, Makoto Koizumi, the pan's fiber lined wave pattern on the surface helps keep the egg from sticking or charring. Able to retain high heat, the pan will become increasingly non-stick over the years with use. Works on gas, halogen, radiant and induction cook tops too!
