Where can I find a Takoyaki Pan in Edmonton? Or a Sanyo 3-in-1 Electric Multi-Cooker (HPS-MC3)

My daughter wants these items...she is gaga about Japanese cooking. I have searched high and low...wondering if anyone out there knows who sells these in Edmonton, Alberta???

Lots online in the USA and beyond but the shipping is double what the unit is worth! Sheeeeesh!

  1. Did you check any Asian grocery stores like T&T?

      Yeppers.... No suck luck. I'm wondering about Lucky 7 though....


    2. Williams Sonoma sells a Danish filled pastry pan that would work for takoyaki. You might have better luck finding one of those in Canada.

        Ooooooh, this pan is very similar! I will check it out, thanks!

          Ouch. It's $60 plus $22 for shipping from Calgary to Edmonton. It's cheaper for me to buy the Takoyaki Pan from

          1. Have you contacted Sanyo Canada to ask about Alberta dealers?


            1. This is a wholesaler in Toronto
              3 takoyaki pans - $34, $38, $50.
              Shipping (according to their chart) would be $13.

              Read through their FAQ - they would prefer to aim you at a local retailer if they can - otherwise the public is free to order from them (I think).

                I actually managed to find something similar at's a Pancake Puff Pan and looks close to the one at Williams-Sonoma. :-) $14.95 plus $20 shipping. Not bad.

                I'm going to check out that one at hongkongimports though...thanks Cancowboy!

                Scary Bill...going to try Sanyo next and see if they can help. Thanks

                  There used to be an As Seen On TV store at North Hill Mall. Don't know if it is still there but it would save you the shipping.

                  Edit: Sorry, I just realized you are in Edmonton. Oops.
