Would you like to cook with awesome, Australian-made, restaurant quality cookware?  Now you can!

SOLIDTEKNICS logoSOLIDTEKNICS’ high-performance cookware is the only production cookware made in Australia. Developed by food-loving mechanical engineer Mark J Henry, they are made from 100% clean Australian iron, acclaimed by a growing list of leading chefs, exported to the USA, selling strongly in the independent cookshops, and also online.  The biggest buzz has been around their new AUS-IONTM seamless one-piece formed-iron (low carbon steel) chef pans. These pans cook the same as cast iron, with all the same durability, health and natural seasoning benefits, but are half the weight!

Recently, AUS-IONTM cookware has been relaunched as AUS-IONTM ‘Satin’ after a breakthrough in the surfacing of the smooth sheet iron. A high-tech shot-peening operation minutely hammers the pan surface all over to mimic a fine cast iron finish. This ensures that the factory pre-seasoning is much stronger, and new owners of the Australian iron pans can season them much more easily than the original smooth steel version, while all other innovative AUS-IONTM features remain unchanged.

They are similar to the best French sheet iron/steel restaurant pans, only with significant improvements for greater performance:

  1. Solidteknics AUS ION Satin 22cm Sauteuse

    22cm AUS-ION skillet

    Hygiene: Seamless construction means no rivets to loosen over time and no gaps under rivet heads to trap food.

  2. Durability: Made from one thick piece of seamless iron (low carbon mild steel: very tough), with no welds or rivets to fail. AUS-ION™ pans come with a multi-century warranty against breakage from materials and manufacturing defects and the manufacture date is stamped on each pan to reflect this heirloom quality.
  3. Comfort, control, reduced fatigue: Handle re-engineered to improve dynamics. Long, wide and concave all the way through to the broad tail.
  4. Cool handle: Strong aerated neck webbing design keeps end of handle usually cool enough to lift from hot stove with bare hand.
  5. Hot pan: AUS-ION™ skillets are made from thick 3mm iron (low carbon steel) for even pan heating and heat retention. Perfect even heating on induction, or any heat source including ceramic cooktops and open flame.
  6. Healthy and sustainable: All-natural pre-seasoning at factory for healthy low-stick that only improves with cooking. Safe at high temperatures, and forever renewable, not disposable. Continue seasoning and maintaining just like any steel or iron pan. It’s easy, and we provide instructions.

Solidteknics believe very strongly, and with sound engineering basis, that they have developed the world’s best iron/steel pans. And they make AUS-ION™ 100% in Australia, from 100% Australian steel, 100% proudly.
