Enjoy a lifetime of cooking with your healthy, non toxic, forever renewable non-stick iron pan - with a non-stick surface you can trust because you've built it yourself!

When seasoned adequately, Solidteknics cookware will be non-stick without resorting to synthetic coatings. Seasoning can be reapplied at home, so pan will never lose it's stick-free cooking. Your cookware has had an initial seasoning in the factory, but will require more when you get it home. Please see the video below on how to complete this process (seasoning and cleaning instructions are also included with pan).

Solidteknics provides excellent post-purchase support for if you need advice on using and caring for your pan. 

Shipping: please note that your online order may take up to 7 days to despatch.
Stores: not all pans are always in our stores. Order online here & pick up in store, or view in store & request your desired model if not on hand.

you are making a difference:

  • Break the cycle of disposable synthetic imports that end up in landfill.
  • One-time purchase to save money and resources - made for multi-generational use, each pan engraved with the date of manufacture for collectibility.
  • Non-toxic and sustainable alternative to synthetic non-stick coatings - most non-stick cookware, such as Teflon, is made with PTFE and other harmful toxins and heavy metals that off-gas when heated.

features:

  • 30cm Skillet is 3mm thick, and is a great pan for family meals, with a helper handle for easy lifting and maneuverability.
  • Highly conductive on any heat source - induction, gas, ceramic, halogen, electric, oven, open fire.
  • Australian wrought iron (or low carbon mild steel) is better quality than steel cookware from China, which has a high carbon content, is not as durable, and does not conduct heat as well.
  • One-piece, seamless and rivetless for better durability and hygiene - no food or dirt getting caught in the cracks.
  • Cooks like cast iron but is half the weight, for easy maneuverability and handling.
  • Thick iron cooks and heats evenly without warping.
  • Broad concave handle allows for more control while cooking.
  • Vented handle reduces the heat transfer from the pan to your hand.

*warranty:

Solidteknics offers a multi-century warranty for all defects related to materials or manufacturing occuring during normal cooking.  Note this is a manufacturing warranty for defects and is not valid for improper use, lack of maintenance, or 'change of heart'. For the warranty to remain valid, Solidteknics seasoning and care instructions must be followed.

If there is a surface seasoning or rust spotting problem, simply clean and re-season.

dimensions/materials:

Length 58cm (including handle) / Diameter 30cm / Diameter of base 27cm / Height at handle 10cm / Height of bowl 5.5cm.

Care for your pan:

No dishwasher.  No soap.  Wash under hot water and scrub with a brush.  Scrape anything stuck with a wooden spatula to remove food while preserving the non-food black seasoning. You can use metal implements and scourers, but note that it may remove some of the seasoning. In which case, you will simply need to re-season the surface.

How to Season Your Pan:

Seasoning has ben done since the age of iron to provide low-stick ability and corrosion resistance. Applying thin layers of oil and heating to its smoke point, breaks down the oil, allowing it to bond and layer on the steel pan surface (fat polymerisation).  The surface is forever renewable, so if you make mistakes, or the seasoning is removed through cleaning, you simply start building again - unlike Teflon and synthetic-coated pans that are useless once the surface is scratched and damaged.

Don't expect a slick, even surface like Teflon.  A seasoned pan is superior in health and sustainability, but it will be more 'earthy' and less visually perfect than synthetic non stick coatings.  The surface will depend on how you season and what you use the pan for.  These are the pans that you see used by restaurant chefs.

You can oven season, stove-top season, or old-school season while you cook. Please follow instructions supplied with your pan.  Solidteknics also offers comprehensive seasoning and care instructions on its website www.solidteknics.com/ironcare/

    Very happy with product

    We love this frying pan. I bought it as a replacement for our old teflon coated frying pan which had lost its 'non-stick' performance. My husband loved the seasoning process and taking care of his new toy. I love how solid and durable it is, especially being made of one piece of wrought iron, and I know I'll never need to buy another frying pan. I also love how I can fry the food on the stove then put it in the oven to finish cooking. The little Australia in the handle is a lovely little touch to make this pan unique.
