Tepan, teppan yaki or teppanyaki – there are several ways of describing this type of cooktop. Whichever term is used, it always refers to a flat steel plate that is used to grill on. Such teppanyaki cooktops are derived from the Japanese art of grilling. Just as in the traditional Japanese kitchen, the cook places fish, meat or vegetables directly on the Tepan plate integrated in the cooktop.
A teppanyaki cooktop usually has two cooking zones that can be separately adjusted. This enables you to grill a steak quickly on one side, whilst the vegetables cook slowly on the other. Teppanyaki cooktops form part of the BORA Professional and BORA Classic cooktop ranges. And there’s more: you don’t need to worry about burnt-on food! A teppanyaki is easy to clean. Simply pour a little water mixed with vinegar onto the Tepan plate and leave it to soak for a few minutes. Any dirt can then be removed using a Tepan scraper and sponge. To finish off, just wipe away any residue and water with kitchen roll.
