Our smallest iron skillet! Ideal as a single-meal pan, and the perfect starter pan! Eggs, bacon, omelettes, small portions.

Made in Australia from clean Australian iron, our AUS-ION™ pans provide excellent heat retention and thermal mass for consistent, even cooking. Seasoned with our new Quenched™ finish and ready to use. Learn why Quenched™ is a game-changer in iron cookware! Suitable for all heat sources from stovetop (including induction) to oven to campfire. 

Natural oil-based seasoning is the only low/non-stick cooking surface that can forever be restored and need never be disposed of. Every other non-stick cooking surface is an applied coating that is either toxic and/or short-lived in nature, and ultimately destined to end up as landfill.

BEFORE USE: Please read our Seasoning and Care guide.

Our pans are nearly all designed to fit in a standard 600mm domestic oven, though we recommend checking measurements prior to purchase as the internal dimensions of ovens do vary.

Please also note: All of our pans have a carefully engineered concave deliberately built in to the base. This is normal practice for all heavy based iron and steel pans, to allow for movement (expansion) when the metal is heated. To learn more about our concave and why it’s important, click HERE.

Worth it and convenient size

Recently added the 18cm frypan to our collection, after using the 30cm as our primary frypan for years now. The 18cm is a good, sturdy weight; and the pre-seasoning is perfect to start cooking eggs and pancakes straight away. I am amazed at how easy it was to make pancakes and flip them right away without anything sticking! Can already see it being regularly used and cleaning is easier with it being a small size - even for a quick re-seasoning. Price is justified to replace a lifetime of small cheap non stock frypans and of course, the environment and our health etc.

Awesome product

What a great product to replace all the "non-stick" pans !!! This amazing iron pan is perfect for my morning eggs and I just love how it retains heat. I read the cleaning instructions and it is so EASY !!! Love love love!! Never going back - and best of all it is a healthy alternative to other pans!

It's like it's made for kids

This pan is the perfect size for those small chefs in your life. This is my child go to pan for cooking his own scrambled eggs or omelettes. The perfect size for those little jobs like toasting spices or a quick reheat.

Perfect size

Love using this pan for breakfast, toasting nuts, and even for a sneaky dessert for two!! As with all solidteknics products it’s always a breeze to cook on, love that it can go from stove to oven, and is so simple to clean.

Love my Pan!

Absolutely love my pan. It's lightweight in comparison to cast iron, completely natural and safe with no teflon poison in sight and love how quickly it heats up and holds the heat. Sure it took some getting used to cooking with but absolutely worth the investment. Love that it will be passed down the generations long after I'm gone. And also love that these pans are made in Australia.

Perfect pan

I love my two Aus-ion pans. This one is the perfect size for cooking single serves of things and the 30cm one for family meals. I love that they are healthier than other non stick surfaces but still perfectly non stick. The fact that they are locally made is another big tick from me and I'll never have to buy another pan as these will last generations. You can not wreck these pans. A quick scrub and re season is all that is occasionally needed to bring it back to new again.

Great pan

Awesome little pan for many uses, perfect for side dish meals, eggs, mushrooms, onions or cooking curry sauce spices.

Great little guy

Plenty of people will tell you this pans excellent, a workhorse, bulletproof ... you know what it is. I use this pan everywhere, I'm sure it's at home in commercial kitchens, I use this little guy on the BBQ, in the pizza oven and out camping, its tough, its reliable and its simple. it'll fry an egg, heat baked beans, and yes do a whole heap more when I'm done its cleaned seasoned and left to bounce home in the camper trailer. Testament to just how good it is from there it looks the same as it did the day we bought it when it returns to the kitchen to resume its life as one of the day to day pans. This is just the beginning for us... there will be more of these in our kitchen. They have no right to be this good, i think this really is a lifetime purchase.

Most used pan i've ever owned.

I love this little pan. I use it almost every day to cook eggs and other stuff. It's small enough to chuck in the oven and not take up heaps of space and is super easy to clean. I cooked a couple of sausages using this pan yesterday on the wood fire oven and they were amazing!

My Favourite size

By: on 9 May 2023
I am so in love with my Solidteknics 18cm frypan. I have been lovingly seasoning my pans and enjoy every minute of it. This 'little' pan is my most used size. I usually cook for one so this size is perfect for that and reheating food. It is also the easiest to carry as they are heavy but alot more manageable than cast iron. I'm impressed with the quality of the pan and the straight out of the box ease of use. I seasoned it a few times before use but since it's been pretreated it made the whole process alot less daunting and intimidating. My food cooks so much better and I'm happy to find my forever pan! I highly recommend this pan and haven't stopped telling everyone why they should grab one or three! Australia made, environmentally friendly, beautifully designed and quality is impeccable.
