Made in Japan! Take your outdoor cooking to a new level, with this compact and durable BBQ stand, perfect for any space!

A new piece of camping gear to help you enjoy a bbq in places you never thought possible due to them being rather cramped! A new update for our Fire Box55 to make it bigger for Western Users comes to Kickstarter!

 

Features

An height-adjustable charcoal bed!

Don’t be constrained to one type of heat, with this height-adjustable charcoal bed, you can bring the heat closer to the ingredients to get the perfect cooking temperature.

A solid piece of gear when built that doesn’t feel unsettled

Fits perfectly with our Iron Plates and Pot to create the perfect BBQ!

At Number55 we have created two different cooking goods, the ENTENKA, an iron pot, and the YAKIGANE, three different types of Iron Plates, that are great for a variety of styles of cooking! We are also giving you the chance to pick these plates up during this project!

Like Cooking? Maybe you like the outdoors? How about unique or cool looking design objects? If you’re one of the above or even all of the above, we have the item for you! Straight from Japan, this iron pot and plate set has been upgraded and is being made available to everyone all over the world!

When it comes to the wishes of cooks all over and what they want in a cooking utensil or cookware, the answers are varied, with some wanting high quality, some wanting functionality, others want long lasting goods, and so on. A lot of brands from countries like France, Germany, or the USA tend to be minimalist while at the same time being stylish, which sometimes makes cooking with these items a little awkward to do… Sometimes cooking can get tiring, so why not give the Number 55 Yakigane Iron Plate and Entenka Pot a go, and bring some fun to cooking! 

The Number 55 Yakigane Iron Plate and Entenka Pot are some rather rustic pieces of iron cookware. However, don’t let that fool you into thinking that they're just for use at a BBQ! You can switch and change them to give you true control over your cooking, and go from just grilling, to frying, deep frying, boiling, or even steaming! 

 

Great for cooking over open fires, perfect for outdoor adventures!

Why not take to the outdoors and create a sense of wild cooking with the Number 55 Iron Plate and Pot?! Great for situations at a campsite or even just for cooking in the garden in summer, this plate is there to support you! With COVID-19, it’s become harder to hold close gatherings but with this, you can take it outside and not need to worry as it’s easy to take distance and you can enjoy a stress free time with socially distanced friends. 

Both the Yakigane plates and Entenka pot can be used on open flames, and are extremely durable, perfect for the outdoors. They are also easier to take around than the traditionally used skillets or cooking pots that would be taken on trips. 

 

Being about 3mm wide, you can cook with them layered on each other. 

<Great for Grilled Meat>

As the plates allow for the heat to pass through quickly, thinly cut meat can be quickly cooked to a crispy and aromatic perfection!

<Perfect for steaks and oily foods>

Control the heat while letting the oil drain

When it comes to thick pans, they are hard to warm, as well as take longer to cool, meaning that you can uniformly heat the pans.

If you wrap some smoke chips in aluminium foil and put it on top of the embossed Yakigane iron plate and flip the slitted plate over you can smoke meats and fish! Don’t limit yourself to traditional seasoning when you have this new method at your fingertips.

By putting the slit plate over a pot of boiling water, then placing the ingredients on top then covering the slit plate with the flat plate, you can steam your food with ease!

<Great for chicken steaks>

Season, place, light fire, emboss on top, perfect. Make some great chicken with some even greater crispy skin by just placing the embossed plate of your chicken.

The Entenka (Iron Pot) and the Yakigane (Iron Plate) can be used together in a variety of ways! Both can be used as a lid for however you want to use them as! Use the plate on top of the pot as a lid like a dutch oven or switch it over, and use the pot as a lid to steam your hamburger! Harmony and unity in plate/pot form!

 

What the Number 55 Yakigane Iron Plate and Entenka Iron Pot can be used to cook!

◆Steaks Galore! Be it chicken, beef, pork or something else, this will be able to support your meat madness! 

◆Soups for days! The pot can be used to hold the soup while the plates can be used to cook anything extra before putting it in! 

◆Chinese dumplings, hamburgers or other steamed foods!

◆Asian foods like fried rice or bibimbap (if you don’t know it check it out!) 

◆As a pot for cheese fondue! 

◆MUCH MORE!!

What’s more on top of that, you can use it with a Induction Hob no problem! 

 

Obviously we don’t expect you to be picking up hot plates and pots with your bare hands (or with bear hands for that matter) so we have also created a special stylish handle so you can pick them up with ease! What’s more, we know at a camp we all like to have a drink so we have designed it to have a bottle opener as well! We only ask that you act responsible when near open fires and hot things! 

(Included with Plate and pot returns!)

Testing the durability of the plates and pots

We’ve taken it upon ourselves to test the plate and pots in a variety of ways, including dropping it from about 1.5m to see if it broke (it didn’t) and in fact there wasn’t any damage to it. We also took to it with a hammer to see if we could deform it (we couldn’t) and we feel like we can say that the plates and pots are quite durable. (We may have had a bit of fun while testing it out as well!)

Seasoning

In order to stop rusting, we highly recommend you wash with washing up liquid and then over flame, coat it with oil, making sure to cover the whole plate. You can watch the video below for more instructions.

 

1.First wash the plate or pot using washing up liquid and then with kitchen paper remove the excess water. Then place on an open flame.

2.When all the water has evaporated, pour olive oil on the plate or pot and then using kitchen paper, rub the plate or pot.

3.Let the oil spread all over and keep the flame on the plate or pot until some smoke starts to rise. 

4.Let the plate or pot cool and then when it has cooled enough pour more olive oil onto the plate and heat. 

5.Repeat step 4 4-5 times.

6.To remove the iron smell, try frying some onion or something that has a nice aroma to it. This is not to eat but to take the iron smell away. 

7.Remove the food, and then wash with water only. Then place back on the flame, evaporating the water and then lightly rub with olive oil, finally storing the seasoned plate! 

 

Specifications

 

 The story behind the Number 55 Yakigane Iron Plates and Entenka Pots 

A match between designer and maker | Two young CEOs form to make a better product. 

Both of us were born in 1980 which in Japan would also be called Showa 55 (Showa being the era 1926–1989). We came together to create the brand Number 55.

(On the left) Wakouseiko Co. CEO:Tetsuo Makino 

A car parts manufacturing company that uses various presses to create the parts.

(On the right) Rungo Co. CEO:Yohei Okada 

A graphic and web design company that mainly works with the creation of advertising for films and so on. 

By using the amazing technical skills of Wakouseiko as well as their high quality presses and combining this with the design sense at Rungo, we were able to come up with some amazing quality goods! We think this joining has been a large blessing!

 

We have been putting up our design and production history on Youtube so that we can show off the work that goes into making this product, as well as hopefully showing off what we companies from Gifu Prefecture can do!

Points of Caution

・As the plates and pots are quite heavy, please be careful when handling.

・As the plates and pots are manufactured, there may be slight marks and scratches.

・We try our best when creating each plate and pot to make sure there aren’t any scratches or burrs, but they may appear on the product. We ask you to check the product before use and if there seems to be a problem to find a local metalworker to maybe help remove these burrs. 

・The plates and pots are made with outdoor use in mind, so please be careful if using inside. 

・Please keep children away from the hot plates and pots.

・Please be careful when heating the plate on an open fire. 

・We don’t take any responsibility if you get hurt when using this product.  

・When using the handle, we ask for you to be careful when moving items, just in case the plate or pot slips out in some way.
