The Muurikka Story began in the late 1970s with with an idea to expand the diameter of a cauldron in order to increase the frying area available. After further refinement of the idea, the first Muurikka Pan was born, fashioned from the inspection hatch of a steel container. A new word “muurinpohjapannu” or “muurikkapannu” was thus coined for the Finnish vernacular. Muurikka has become the generic name of all outdoor pans in Finland. Muurikka pans of all different sizes are manufactured in Finland since 1976, and tens of thousands are sold to date.
Muurikka Griddle Pans, made of hot-rolled Finnish steel, enable you to prepare any kind of food outdoors, not to mention thin and crispy Muurikka Pancakes, which are the most famous and most beloved Muurikka foods in Finland! Today Muurikka provides durable products designed for outdoor cooking – all from tiny stainless steel campfire kettles to big Tundra Grills, outdoor fireplaces which are made of Finnish steel since 1983.
If Muurikka were a person, he or she would be a person who enjoys the outdoors: practical and slightly weather-worn on the surface perhaps, but tough as nails on the inside. Amidst the utility and principal, however, would lurk a bit of the romantic, longing for some recognition for its daily toil and eager to share in intimate moments that make life worth living. This is why Muurikka products were created – to help turn the everyday into a special celebration. Muurikka invites people to gather together for cooking healthy, versatile food outdoor, and to enjoy unforgettable moments with friends and with Muurikka!
