SMALL FRY SKILLET

Flame Resistant Premium Japanese Stoneware

Dimensions: 23cm x 3cm (28cm with handles)

Options: BLACK • BROWN • IVORY

SMOOTH UNGLAZED CLAY

Wheel thrown fry pan (with handles) made to be used directly on the open fire.  Safe to cook on gas stoves, campfires, backyard bbqs, brick ovens and electric coils, etc.  No need to use a diffuser or slow preheat (required for any regular clay).

Similar to cast iron cookware, the surface will patina and age as you use it.  The colour will eventually darken, blacken and tell unique and beautiful story of its use over time.  

After firing, the pot is hand sanded smooth and the surface will continue to soften with each use.

For best results, and to start to build the natural, non stick surface, it’s highly recommended you cure and seal the pot before it’s first use.

  • Soak in a bucket of clean water overnight, or 12 hrs minimum.  
  • Remove and towel dry.  
  • Rub a very generous amount of a plant based cooking oil onto the entire surface, inside and outside.  
  • Place directly on the rack in the oven at 200°c for approximately 1 hour.
  • Take it out carefully and let it cool completely.
  • Repeat as many times as you’d like - I personally have had good results with 3 rounds but it depends on your conditions and technique.
  • After the last round in the oven is finished, coat the pan lightly with one more layer of oil.
  • Store in a dry spot with good airflow.

Best to not use chemicals for cleaning, instead a good hot water scrub and open air dry.

Flameware clay is intentionally porous (to aid with the conduction & maintenance of heat) and and can absorb the soap and may transfer that back into the food.  If you notice any mould growing on the surface, don’t fret.  Just give it a soak in boiling water with baking soda.  You can also make a baking soda paste for cleaning if your pot needs a bit more of a scrub.

The benefits of cooking in clay have been evident throughout humanity’s existence.  A majority of cultures across the Earth still rely on clay pots to cook, store & transport meals.  It may take a little practice, but most who are introduced become quick converts.  Cooking becomes a more positive, mindful and grounding experience, which has been proven to increase the capacity for absorption of nutrients and improve digestion.  The food simply tastes better (in my opinion!)

Expect subtle differences, as no two pots are exactly the same.
