Frying Pan

For this frying pan, the pan itself is made by aluminum die casting (a casting process by injecting molten aluminum into a mold cavity).
Because die casting allows greater freedom in formative design than press stamping, the aluminum pan connects smoothly and uninterruptedly to the resin handle.  For ease of care, coating is provided not only inside the pan but down to the base of the handle.
The thick bottom of the pan maximizes uniform heat conductivity.
To reduce its weight, the frying pan has a concave handle that also works as a rest for cooking utensils, such as kitchen chopsticks, to prevent their handles from burning during cooking.
