Vermicular Cast Iron System

The new Vermicular Cast Iron System aims to combine ancient know-how with modern induction cooking possibilities. The story behind this cooking system goes all the way back to the mid 30s when the Hijikata family, the founders, created a cast iron factory. The unique material has the potential to enhance whatever you cook because of its ability to evenly disperse temperature and preserve moisture, plus you may set it on an open fire (mushikamado style) or in an oven and it will withstand the challenge without burning the content. What the most recent Hijikata brothers Kuni and Tomo did was add the possibility of giving it a modern twist with its induction base that will enable its users to fine tune the temperature. The induction energy is also ultra fast to heat it up saving you time, and you may also use it in a classic way by getting it in the oven.
