What is 'Satin?'
'Satin' refers to the surface finish: Shot-peened and lightly pre-seasoned all over, with no additional anti-corrosion coating to remove prior to use. The textured 'Satin' finish makes seasoning easier (the rough surface grips seasoning better when the pan is new, making them easier for inexperienced seasoners). With shot peening we found a way to replicate cast iron's ease of seasoning in our lighter wrought-iron pans.
Shot peening is also known as shot blasting. Thousands of small steel balls are fired at the surface at extreme velocities to indent (peen) the surface without removing metal. It is not an abrasive process like sand or grit blasting.
Peening leaves a minutely hammered surface that is perfect for anchoring seasoning in the 'craters', while not being sharp enough to jag food on the 'hills'.
What is this seasoning you speak of?
If you are new to iron cookware seasoning is basically ‘build your own’ natural non-stick and it is the reason why bare iron cookware can become non-stick without 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.
Natural seasoning is healthy, non-toxic and forever renewable. Discover how easy it is to build-your-own healthy, non-stick and forever-renewable AUS-ION™ cooking surface here and never replace a non-stick pan again!

1. 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.
2. Our new conductive solid ferritic nöni™ stainless steel range is perfect for all liquid boiling, slow cooking, acidic sauces, and is very low maintenance.....and indestructible.
Both ranges are designed to work together as a complete set of complementary pans, on any heat source.

BrilliantBy: Jennifer Stevens on 9 September 2020Love my pans from Solidteknics, bought this and the skillet pan. Both deliver fantastic results, super easy to clean and so much healthier for you. They maybe a little pricey but will last forever. I am so glad I finally went ahead and purchased, should have done sooner. Even heat, no sticking, don't need a high temperature, retains heat well, handle remains cool, lightweight. Will definitely buy another in the future to add to my two pans. Communication upon ordering is excellent and quick delivery. Plenty of seasoning instructions found via website and lots of other helpful information. A great Australian made product that will last for years, highly recommend.
FrypansBy: Trevor on 8 September 2020We have been using a range of the frypans. They are terrific. A tip for new buyers is to follow the seasoning process and be patient. We were getting frustrated at first then spoke to the company, they told us to stay the course we were on and the pans slowly got better and better. All Australian quality product with great service.
Satin' 30cm Wrought Iron SkilletBy: David Callinan on 13 August 2020This has been a great purchase. I followed the seasoning instructions and will not be buying another non-stick pan ever again. It cooks fantastic and has enabled me to to really nail some great crunchy finishes on dishes that have been eluding me for some time. Just recently cooked a perfect dry aged rib steak . Easy to clean and keep seasoned. Cannot recommend highly enough !
Great for beginner cooks tooBy: Sally on 10 August 2020During COVID I’ve increased my interest in cooking and wanted to pick a product that would help. Seasoning the pan is simple, as is cleaning it, and its’ heavy (but not too heavy) weight gives me confidence it will last awhile and cook food evenly. It’s not as deep as other large pans I’ve had but it does the job.
Life-changerBy: Rebecca on 27 July 2020It might sound dramatic but this pan has been a life-changer! After using teflon for many years, I now realise what a difference quality cookware makes. We've only had it a few days but our chicken fillets cooked perfectly, as well as our pancakes, AND they didn't stick!! (The pancakes were probably the best ones I've ever had!). Make sure you follow the instructions to season it properly - the time spent is worth it! Highly recommend. We'll be getting more sizes in the future for sure.
