AUS-ION™ Australian-made wrought iron professional cookware is perfect for everyday oil/fat based frying, grilling, etc. AUS-ION™ cooks and seasons like all bare cast iron cookware, but is half the weight. Seasoned iron is the only known non-toxic and forever-renewable non-stick. All other non-stick cookware is made with toxic and/or disposable synthetic coatings.
Please ensure you are familier with our seasoning and care instructions here before purchase.
What is RAW?
'RAW' refers to the surface finish: Just traditional raw iron, with no seasoning or surface blasting. Coated in natural beeswax/vegetable oil for rust protection, ready for your seasoning and cooking.
What is seasoning?
If you are new to iron cookware, seasoning is basically ‘build your own’ natural non-stick, without the need for toxic and/or disposable synthetic coatings. It involves a process called polymerisation whereby oil and fat is transformed by heat and bonds to the iron, creating a non-toxic natural non-stick surface that you build and maintain yourself over time. If you cook with fats and oils and wash carefully, your natural non-stick will keep renewing for many lifetimes. Your pan will naturally darken in colour as the seasoning develops.
Follow our easy Seasoning Instructions, to discover how easy it is to build-your-own healthy, non-stick and forever-renewable AUS-ION™ cooking surface. Never replace a non-stick pan again!
Background: We originally launched our AUS-ION™ pans in smooth pre-seasoned surface finish in 2015, and they were an immediate success. A year later we re-introduced them with a more expensive ‘Satin’ surface finish with pre-seasoning, and they just kept growing in popularity. The Satin finish made seasoning easier for all the cooks who were new to real iron pans in Australia (the rough surface grips seasoning better when the pan is new, making them easier for inexperienced seasoners - you can find these AUS-ION™ ‘Satin’ pans in other sections of our store). However, ultimately both surface finishes will end up in the same place with the correct care and lots of cooking.
Eliminating the expensive Satin finishing and seasoning operations significantly lowers cost, and we hope this helps many more new cooks afford our healthy and sustainable multi-generation cookware. We also hope our current supporters can more affordably give the gift of heirloom wrought iron to the cooks they love.
Please familiarise yourself with our Seasoning and Care instructions here before purchase, especially if you are new to bare iron cookware.
