MoMA Exclusive: Designed and made in Japan, this Remy Pan Plus is a deep and lightweight design, with an aluminum body that heats quickly. It has a PFOA-free nonstick coated surface that will not release harmful chemicals after years of use like other nonstick cookware does. Ideal for sauteéing, deep frying, simmering, making rice and pasta dishes and more, the Remy Pan Plus comes with a tempered glass lid that releases steam through a built-in slot. The pan’s magnetized handle allows Remy utensils to attach and drip over the pan. The lid’s handle is designed so the lid can stand upright for space-saving storage, and is also designed with a slot for keeping Remy Utensils (sold separately) in place. The Remy Pan Plus measures 6h x 17w x 10”d and has a 3.5-quart capacity. Hand wash recommended. Safe for induction cooktops.

Why We Chose This
The original Remy Pan was developed in 2001 by Remi Hirano, one of Japan's most famous chefs, and today Remy is the most popular domestically made cookware in Japan. The Remy Pan is a favorite among fine chefs because of its innovative function: because Remy utensils can be attached to the pan's magnetized handle, sauces and oils drip back into the pan instead of creating a mess on countertops and stoves.
Function plays a large role in defining good design. When designers look at an object, they don't just consider its aesthetic appearance—they should also challenge it to be more versatile, to respond to the user's need, or to achieve its purpose more elegantly. Good design has the capacity to solve problems that sometimes we didn't even know we had. This is one of the ways design touches and enriches our everyday life.
