If you haven't had Tamago, you haven't truly lived. This magical fluffy Japanese egg dish is carefully folded, layer after layer, into a delicious pillowy egg rectangle. To properly make tamago you need a rectangular pan.
Prince Kogyo Tamagoyaki pans are perfect as you can endlessly re-season them for a perfect non-stick finish that allows you to craft perfect tamago.
Care Instructions: Like all carbon steel pans, Prince Kogyo Frying Pans can rust. To prevent this, season them properly, avoid soaking them and dry them well after washing. Season them by heating them on medium-low on the stove for 10 minutes. Add a ladle-full of oil or lard and swirl it around carefully. Turn the heat to low and allow it to sit for 3 minutes. Pour out the excess, wipe the pan out with paper towel and allow it to cool. Repeat this process after each washing for the first month, then as needed.
Do not put these pans in the oven without removing the handle.
For Glasstop stove owners: Due to the inconsistent heat produced by glass top stoves, carbon steel pans can warp with extreme heat. These can be used on glass, but heat them slowly and only season them in the oven, not on the stove.
