Brilliant efforts, and we thank you all for your support for our Australian cookware vision!
Our major prize winner!
Our runner-up prizes!
Great 'highly commended' comments worth re-reading!
Win a full set of Australian AUS-ION cookware, or one of 10 runner-up pans, this Australia Day 2017!
HOW TO WIN:
Enter the competition by posting your answer to the 'burning' question below as a comment on our Facebook or Instagram posts about this Australia Day competition, anytime now until 11:59pm (AEST) on Australia Day, Thursday January 26, 2017.
The 'burning' question: "Why do you think restaurants should be cooking with, and kitchenware stores selling, the new Australian-made AUS-ION iron cookware from Solidteknics, instead of imported disposable synthetic-coated nonstick pans?"
The winner of first prize of the full set of the 8x AUS-ION pans (pictured) will be selected by our founder/engineer, Mark Henry, just before midnight on Australia Day 2017, based on the best response to the 'burning' question, in his humble opinion. Yes, he will read them all, and his answer is final. He will also select the 10x runner up prizes of a 22cm AUS-ION Sauteuse pan for excellent comments and much-appreciated social sharing.
Open to supporters from anywhere, not just Aussies!
