Tami Pan / タミパン
70 years ago, the current OIGEN president’s grandmother Tami used to bake bread in a duralumin pan which has since been remade in Nambu Tekki cast iron.
Mix the ingredients, pour them into the buttered pan, place on the stove top and cook on low heat for 20 minutes. A sweet aroma will start to rise. Turn off the heat, open the lid and you will be greeted by a golden donut-shaped loaf of soft, mild tasting bread.
This bread pan has become one of OIGEN’s best-sellers and is known around Japan as ‘Tami Pan’.

Yaki Yaki Grill / 焼き焼きグリル
This distinctive grilling pan has an undulating pattern on the cooking surface and comes in four sizes.
The undulations effectively trap heat, making it especially suited to grilling.It is designed for use in the fish grill that comes standard with most gas stoves in Japan, but can also be used directly on the stove top.
The Yaki Yaki Grill comes with a wooden stand so it can be taken straight to the table. Steaks can be cut directly on the scratch-resistant grill plate.
naked pan / ネイキッドパン
The ‘naked’ pan was developed with the goal of creating a sustainable product that is better for the environment and your health.
Most cast iron pans, if not cared for properly, will soon start to rust. Until now, enamel or other coatings were thought to be the only way to prevent this.However, at OIGEN we developed a new method called the ‘naked finish’. Heating the pan to a high temperature during the firing process creates a rust-resistant surface, eliminating the need for artificial coatings.
With no coating to interfere with heat transfer, the food is cooked at high temperature, sealing in the flavor and goodness. A little oil goes a long way in the naked pan, making it not only easy to use, but easy to care for too. The naked series are truly premium cast iron products.
Vegetables cooked at high temperature are sweeter and tastier, as the moisture and flavor are sealed inside.Naked pans are especially appreciated by vegetarians, who want to get the most out of their vegetables.

Palma / パルマ
The OIGEN Palma series was developed in collaboration with world-renowned product designer Jasper Morrison. Simple, beautiful ironware is great to use in the kitchen, but can also add a nice accent to the dining table. The unique design of the Palma iron kettle meant it couldn’t be made with existing techniques. OIGEN developed a new production method to make the most of the unique design. Jasper’s designs create traditional Japanese details with beautiful silhouette lines, resulting in products that enhance modern spaces.
