Presenting a matched set of skillets.
This dynamic duo is the fruit of a collaborative endeavor uniting EFRICA and Oitomi—a brand rooted in the outdoor realm, hailing from our very own Iwate Prefecture.
In the Japanese context, Okoze (Stonefish) is renowned as a harbinger of good fortune, particularly when embarking on mountainous adventures.
EFRICA x Oitomi Collaboration! A pair of skillets
Crafted in the year 2022, this exceptional Nambu Ironware skillet arises from a creative collaboration between EFRICA and Oitomi—a distinguished outdoor brand situated in the picturesque Iwate Prefecture, Japan.
Characterized by a dual-component structure, this innovative skillet caters to an array of culinary applications. Employ it to craft delectable layered sandwiches and to expertly grill your preferred meats. The skillet excels at rendering hot sandwiches and meats with an irresistible, savory char. Its robust rectangular configuration effortlessly emanates the essence of iron.
This versatile offering transforms into a veritable Dutch oven, accommodating charcoal atop its surface or direct exposure to open flames—offering a truly dynamic culinary experience.
Sealing a piece of meat within the skillet while securing its lid permits thorough cooking on both sides—a distinctive technique rendered possible exclusively by the Okoze pan.
Moreover, each component functions autonomously as an individual skillet. For instance, envision grilling succulent meat on one while simmering Spanish Garlic Shrimp (Gambas al Ajillo) in the other—a testament to their inherent versatility.
The skillet's substantial weight exerts optimal pressure, achieving the perfect balance for crafting hot sandwiches without necessitating a locking mechanism.
Numerous iterations of hot sandwich makers have entered the market, boasting ample ingredient capacity. However, the Okoze pan differentiates itself by eschewing a locking mechanism, thereby granting limitless flexibility in terms of ingredient quantity and arrangement.
Denim bag for carrying
We have created a custom bag tailored to accommodate the Okoze pan. Crafted from thick and enduring original denim, this bag ensures long-lasting durability. Its distinguished appearance is accentuated by a cow leather patch bearing the Okoze logo.
This special denim bag has been thoughtfully designed to form a harmonious pairing with the Okoze pan, promising a lasting companionship for years to come.

This pan was my first purchase from Oitomi. I had already purchased a small tamagoyaki pan from another foundry in the same Prefecture, and when I saw the Okoze Pan, I knew I had to add it to my collection. The Okoze pan is based on the sandwich makers that have been around for many decades in the United States, except with the stellar quality of Nambu Tekki.
This is a two piece item so in addition to the ability to flip a sandwich or a piece of meat over a camp fire, the pan could also cook two items separately, such as an egg with a small steak, or two portions of fish—whatever you want to bring to camp! The included denim case protects it against some of the other items in your camping bag. It doesn’t have to be limited to the outdoors because it still looks classy as part of a tablescape.
I was initially unsure about ordering internationally, but was pleasantly delighted to find that they are a very professional company that stands behind their products. I have quite a lot of cast iron made in the United States but branched out to Nambu Tekki because I wanted the Japanese aesthetic. The Okoze Pan was a test to see how smoothly the ordering process would work and I came away from the transaction with a close friend. The best part about ordering from Oitomi has been the fact that our family has built a relationship with the company and didn’t have to deal with a distributor. We’ve since ordered quite a few things from Oitomi and they have always shipped quickly and packaged with care.
