Takashi Murakami Flower Pancake – ARTnews.com

A luxury in the kitchen, in my opinion, is to have very specific cooking utensils and utensils – a tamagoyaki skillet, for example, or a cast-iron fish bowl, or a modest but elegant mushroom brush. For flapjack lovers, there’s the waffle tray, which is designed to make perfectly uniform and golden cakes. Now you can buy one designed by Takashi Murakami that turns the mixture into edible art: specifically, one of the famous smiling flowers that inhabit his anime and manga-influenced works.

Sold via the NTWRK app, a live video shopping platform, the frying pan features a polka dot flower based on what was supposed to be Murakami’s first NFT. While this project has been put on hold, the docks are down as scheduled in mid-December, with 275 units on sale at $40. They each feature a sturdy, lightweight cast-iron base (an induction cooktop is appropriate!) that can make a pie about five and a half inches in diameter, and a pale turquoise handle adorned with five cheerful floral motifs.

I tested one of these kids this past weekend, and I’m particularly excited to try this sourdough shake recipe that a friend recommended. But when the batter started to emerge, I realized the pan’s inherent flaw: its jagged border that defines dozens of angular “petals.” Since my spoon wouldn’t fit the bronze edges, I resorted to using a butter knife to pry up one of the corners before doing a somersault. This part of gymnastics can be tricky enough with a round bowl; Trying to land the pie exactly within the angular confines of the pan is a daunting task that no one should face before breakfast. (To the credit of Team Murakami, they released a version of this perfectly round flower pot.)

Having said that, I had no trouble sticking to the dough (I had previously removed the pan) and was able to achieve very good definition on my second try – although not expecting a perfect imprint on the sides of the pie. Sure, the flowers looked cute on my plate, but I personally don’t like breakfast muffins enough to tire with such strenuous effort. Given the pan’s cute little size, I’ll probably use it one day to make a pancake of my choice, okonomiyaki – although the 8-bit style is unlikely to transfer to a loaded egg.
