A series of amazing pans, designed to make your kitchen life easier!

HOKURIKU ALUMI

2022.8.16

Polished, Refined, Light, Your next favourite sturdy frypan!

A top seller in Japan, with over 1,200,000 units sold, the next generation of the SenLen Cast pans are here first for Kickstarter users!!! Brilliantly light without compromising on function or form!



The highest Japanese quality coating

The coating used on the face of the pans is the highest quality coating from Daikin, made especially for kitchen use and has been used for over 50 years in top quality kitchenware. Made from a special ceramic composite, it helps to protect the surface of the pans from abrasion. It is tested to withstand up to 2,000,000 scratches using a metal spatula across the surface.

※This was tested by Daikin in accordance to the JISS2010 standards in regards to coatings.  

Light but incredibly sturdy and long lasting, the perfect pans for a gas stove

When it comes to cooking in pans on a hob, it is incredibly important that there is little to no variation when heating the pan, and that it is heated uniformly. The shape and size, the weight of the pan, the finish of the inside of the pan, and even the fit of the handle in the hand can also have a big impact on cooking with a frypan and how easy it is to do with one.

Choosing the most popular pans

For this project, we asked backers from our previous projects to choose the sizes and types of pans they would like to see! We have chosen the pans included in this project based on these results!


A depth that helps to make cooking easier!

We want to give the best cooking experience we can with these pans, so one thing that we are proud of is the depth available with the pans. Make your favourite fried food and so on and feel safe when doing so!




When it comes to cooking for a large family, it’s recommended to have a large size 30cm pan. It is a size of pan that is extremely versatile and you will find you’ll be using it often. Thanks to the size of the pan, it can be used to create brilliant fried rice. Thanks to its size, you can cook various parts of your meal at the same time on different sides of the pan with ease. 


Make yourself a traditional Japanese egg dish with a specialty pan - the Tamagoyaki

A size of pan that means you can use it daily with ease! Bring a favourite addition of Japanese breakfast into your life, tamagoyaki, an omelette-like dish where the egg is layered on each other.



Approaching the limit of what cast metal can do!  The lightest pan we have made to date!

Using an aluminium magnesium alloy, the pans have a thick bottom, while the sides are thinned to the limit that they can be.

This has led to us being able to make the lightest pan that we have made to date while having a brilliantly thick bottom, great for keeping a uniform temperature when cooking.

Aluminium magnesium alloy when compared to traditional aluminium is much stronger, doesnt deform when high heats are applied, and are brilliantly durable. When compared to other items that we have made, we have found that these aluminium magnesium alloy items are about 90% stronger. 

※Based on frypan load bearing tests carried out by the Toyama Prefectural Engineering Centre. 

This allows for a deep 26cm diameter thick bottomed pan to only weigh 635g (1.4lbs)!


Make the perfect pancake! 

The lightness of the pans aren’t the only thing that this pan is great for. 

Thanks to the pans being cast aluminium, they are also great when it comes to uniform heating. 

When you stop the heat as well, it holds the heat well, meaning that you aren’t using as much gas when you are cooking! 

Comparing an iron fry pan to these pans!


The pride of artisan casters from Takaoka, Toyama Prefecture

By casting molten aluminium into a die mould and then allowing it to cool and harden naturally, it allows the pan to conduct to heat and become rather hard in the process. By doing this cooling slowly, the middle of the pan also cools slowly, allowing it to form to make inside that can hold onto heat exceedingly well, making this pan a pleasure to use in the kitchen!

Uniform heating throughout the pan!

By mixing traditional casting techniques and methods with modern day imaging, we could create the best pan possible!

Make brilliant egg dishes whenever you want!

When making a dish like tamagoyaki (rolled fried egg), having control over the way the eggs are heated is extremely important. Thanks to the thick base, it is able to hold on to the heat, and helps to create a uniformly heated pan.  

Have you ever experience your oil spreading out around just the outside of your pan?

Cast aluminium fry pans are rather strong against changing shape when heated, and so oil is able to keep centred and not fall to the edges creating a doughnut shape, which when cooking can be rather annoying.

Made in Japan quality Fluorine Resin Coating

Daikin is the world’s number one maker of Air Conditioners, and they also specialise in the making of fluorine resin.  

The coating is a PFOA free, safe to the environment, fluorine resin coating

The highest graded Daikin coating

Thanks to the special spherical ceramic polymer, this coating is brilliantly strong against abrasion, while also being exceedingly non-stick.

Various testing methods that the pans have been put through!
