Dongyang Natoyan, a Korean kitchenware producer, has released an eco-friendly, smokeless frying pan that burns fine dust, smell and smoke that are generated inside the pan while cooking.
The air quality in the kitchen is getting worse as the fine dust level is increasing rapidly. Since the fine dust generated during cooking contains carcinogenic substances such as benzene and formaldehyde, repeated inhalation may cause fatal diseases such as lung cancer.
According to Dongyang Natoyan, their frying pan, dubbed Huhu Pan, addresses this problem. Tests by the Korea Testing Laboratory and the Korea Testing & Research Institute show that Dongyang’s smokeless pan has 99% lower level of fine dust and 90% lower level of smell compared to existing frying pans. The level of benzene also drops by 66%, proving its excellent combustion rate.
This product comes with a lid and has a hole (pipe) leading from the handle to the bottom of the frying pan. So dust and other materials are transferred to the bottom of the frying pan and burnt. It also has the advantage that foods are cooked crispy outside and tender inside due to the pressure created by the silicon packing glass lid.
Kim Ki-hong, president of the company, said, "Our distinguished technology and quality management has been recognized and we are exporting to the US, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Israel, China, and Japan. We will continue to develop functional kitchen appliances using our technological power.”
