About the Maker:
The Hijikata Family started an iron foundry called Aichi Dobby in 1936, manufacturing industrial sewing machines. With their home base of Nagoya, Japan over time their foundry became renowned for its ability to cast and machine with extreme accuracy. As the sons inherited the foundry they decided to take their craft into the world of cast iron cookware. A unique insight revealed itself when they found that stainless steel and aluminum pots formed a superior seal between the lid and pot than the existing cast iron counterparts. The Hijikata brothers utilized their company’s cast iron expertise to create enameled cast iron pots with perfectly-fitted lids. A new industry standard for cast iron cookware!
