Bring a brilliant grilling pan in to your home and change how you experience meat with this super thick grill pan!

Story

A professional taste at home.

The perfect grill pan to make your meat juicy, browned and melt-in-the-mouth perfecting.

A special grill pan that comes from the minds of Japanese specialist machine parts manufacturers. 

Using a super thick piece of metal, the middle is drilled and shaved out, creating a pan that can cook a big juicy thick cut of meat just right. 

Use at home or outdoors and let this grill pan help you to make the perfect meat dish without fail! 

With this project, we took the initial Gokuatsu Grill Pan that we created, and with the advice of one of our friends from the United States, we have increased the size, so you can now grill bigger pieces of meat! With this project, you are able to get a new size of 218mm diameter. 



Here at Ito Kousakusho, we primarily make items used on ships, trains, or electrical plants. In these cases, quality control is a large factor, as if a part that we make fails, it can have catastrophic results. We have honed our skills over the years in creating high quality items, and have thus achieved the trust of various companies. It is from these years of high quality manufacturing that we came up with the idea of creating a new type of product that we haven’t tried before. It is our first time to try to produce something that will go overseas! 

The material that we will be using is a carbon steel alloy that we would normally use in the manufacturing of parts. This large cylinder of carbon steel is shaved out, making an exquisitely durable pan that will last for years. This grill pan will not easily buckle or break, and we think you should be able to use this pan for the rest of your life! 



The outer diameter of the larger pan is 218mm while the smaller is 148mm, both having a bottom thickness of 7mm. In order to help increase the heat retention of the pan, cavities have been shaved out. As the base is quite thick this allows for uniform heat transference.

This thickness allows for great heat retention. If you bring the pan to the table after cooking, you can enjoy a wonderfully hot plate of food! 


Results of a heat retention test



Thanks to the amazing carbon steel used, the Gokuatsu Grill Pan can perfectly and uniformly heat up, meaning that it allows for a great browning effect all over.


There is no special coating applied to the pan. When cooking with something like a teflon pan it allows for the juices of the meat to escape, while using the Gokuatsu grill pan, it helps to trap the juices and more importantly the flavour inside. 



On the bottom of the grill pan are concentric circular grooves. These help to trap the fats and oils, allowing for the meat to become crispier and browned. 

When you wish to make something like pancakes, the liquid will get trapped in these grooves, so we recommend putting a flat sheet on the inside of the pan.


ATTENTION!

Please be aware that because it doesn’t have a non-stick coating, you need to be careful that you don’t burn the meat! 

You can get rid of the burnt meat on the pan by using a metal scourer and washing in warm water. A good point of not having a coating means that you can easily clean the pan with harder items. 

After a lot of use, the pan will start to become blacker. Don’t worry this is a natural effect and means that over the years, your grill pan will change! 


Made so that food doesn’t overflow

The grill pan has been made to be like a very deep dish, meaning that you can eat from the pan (please take care when hot!) and not have to worry too much about food spilling over. 

The handle isn’t attached so you can move it about and remove it when you have set the grill pan down. With two sizes available, we hope that you try them both out.

At home cooking!

A machine parts manufacturer ventures into cookware for the first time! 

Ito Kousakusho is based in Ariakecho, Shimabara City, in Nagasaki Prefecture, where our main item is the creation of parts for ships and plants. Using newer style machines and older general purpose machines, our amazing workmen put their all into creating unrivalled machinery parts, only possible all thanks to their skill, attention to detail and deftness of hand!

Thanks to being recognised by our partners and evaluated highly, we wanted to create something of the same high level that can be enjoyed by people all over the world!

Using our knowledge gained over the years to produce the best product possible

Compared to other pans that are made either through bending and warping sheet metal, our process of creating the pans comes from shaving large cylinders of strong metal. In order to make just one though, it does take a large amount of time, and the cost behind making the pan is quite large as well, making the Gokuatsu Grill Pan something that should be valued!

The origins of the Gokuatsu Grill Pan starts from a request I had from one of my friends that has an interest in camping and so on. Using the mill ends that we had left over, we created a prototype and gave it to him. It performed better than we expected, giving the meat a nice browned outside while also being super juicy. I thought that many other people may want to have a pan like this, and we started looking at making it a possibility. We were able to make it not just a pan for steaks, but for other things like chicken and burgers as well, and our end result has been something that can be used to make brilliantly tasty food! We hope that you too can make some incredible dishes as well with the Gokuatsu Grill Pan.

▼The test item that we made for a friend

At the moment, the demand for teppan or iron cooking plates has been increasing overseas. In Japan, these teppan are normally used to make okonomiyaki (a pancake like food with cabbage and meat) or jingisukan (a grilled mutton and vegetable dish). This is normally done at restaurants where the customers cook their own food on a large plate or at a counter where the chef cooks for you. Recently we  have seen French style grilling and Italian style grilling also become popular. Unfortunately though due to corona, it has been hard to enjoy these types of restaurants, and on the other hand camping and outdoor BBQs have seen a massive boom.

Using the Gokuatsu Grill Pan, we want you to experience this type of grilling, be it inside or out, and find new joy in grilling in a new way! We hope that no matter your age or gender, you can take the Gokuatsu Grill Pan on your adventures and travels and make some good food and good memories!

1 Remove any food that is still on the pan as if it is left on there it may have a discolouration or rusting effect on the pan. Please move any cooked food that you want to keep to a different container.

2 Please wash by hand and don’t use a dishwasher to wash the pan.

3 For any burnt food that sticks to the pan during cooking, soak the pan in water and you can easily remove it

4 As the pan is made from an easy to rust material, we recommend washing the pan with a sponge scourer and then leave to dry for as long as possible. 

5 After washing the pan, place a little bit of oil and wipe the inside of the pan, then place an absorbent piece of paper like newspaper and store. When using with high heats, or something that is acidic, or overly salty, or if you use metal items, then the possibility of rusting may increase, but you can still use the pan normally without issue.

《About rusting》

Carbon Steel unfortunately is a metal that rust, but don’t worry this doesn’t cause any harm to the body. If you do feel worried by it though, you can use a metal scourer in order to remove it, then clean with warm water, then remove any water with a towel and leave to dry for a while. If possible, while the grill pan is still warm, you can use food safe oils to coat the pan and store. 


(1)We will try to create the perfect pan but if you have any hesitations about the pan you receive please contact us!

(2)When you first use the pan, you may feel that there is a strong smell of metal. To get rid of this you can do the following

① Wash with water and then put the pan on a low heat.

②After it has warmed enough, let it cool.

③Put oil up to about 1/3 of the pans height and then heat again on low heat.

④Remove the oil and then with a piece of kitchen paper wipe the inside and then try cooking some leftover vegetables in the pan.



(1)Please don’t use it in a microwave.

(2)Please don’t leave over a heat source for a long time without anything in the pan or rapidly try to cool it, or drop the pan from a tall height as it may damage the pan.

(3)The pan gets hot when cooking and retains its heat for a while after cooking, so please don’t touch the pan directly. We ask you use the gripper when handling the pan, and we ask you to keep a close eye on any children near the pan.

(4)When handling the pan and moving it, please make sure that you have attached the handle correctly. If the pan is moving or has been attached at an angle, then it may fall off and may scald or burn yourself or someone close.

(5)When using on a portable gas stand, please make sure to check to see if it is suitable for use. Depending on the size and weight, you may not be able to use it.

(6)Don’t put a grill pan that has been used to cook on your table top without any protection. It may burn or mark your table if you do so.

(7)Please don’t heat the pan for a long time without having any food items or water inside. If you do leave it in a situation like this by mistake, please let it cool down naturally without running it under water.

(8)Please do not use the pan on a room heater. It may fall off and burn or scald you.

(9)To reduce the risk of food burning, heat the pan first and then add the ingredients.


《When using on a IH Hob》

(1)When trying to use it, please check the manual you got with your IH hob as the size and weight and so on may not be compatible.

(2)Please avoid going straight to a high power setting, and gradually increase the heat instead.

(3)As the Grill Pan is quite weighty, be careful not to drop it on the top plate, or push too hard on the pan when cooking. If you do it may damage your hob.

(4)If you turn the power on and rapidly increase the temperature of the pan, when adding even just a dash of oil may cause a fire. When you need oil to be hot, start the pan off at a lower temperature, and keep it at around medium heat.

(5)If you use the pan for a long time at a high heat, it may cause marks on the top plate. We recommend you be careful when cooking.
