This is a great starter pan if you're new to cooking with iron!  Ideal for one-pan meals such as frittatas, scrambled eggs, baking (bread & cakes) and small roasts. Also great for deep frying and pan searing.

Perfect for eggs in every imaginable way, or achieving that sear-perfection on a steak. Nothing beats seasoned iron for browning, crusting, and caramelisation! Easily start on the stovetop and finish in the oven with the same pan…

I love this pan! We were surprised at how conductive it is. Never going back to crap pans again. This saves energy because it heats quickly. I love the fact that it is Australian made and one complete piece. We were worried about the handle being hot but this has not been an issue at all.

Excellent lightweight

I love these pans, the lightning in particular for weak wrists. They sear superbly with the correct heat. Clean easily, usually with just a wipe out. I even cook tomato based items, sometimes they just need to be reseasoned.

Solidtecknics Awesome!

Received this week as part of Kickstarter pledge. This is my first quenched finish pan - quick stovetop season and perfomed perfectly first go! The 21cm can hold more than you think and this one is a little deeper than their other pans. The lighter weight is noticeable and is great to work with as it heats up quicker but no change in performance. Great work Soldteknics, awesome product!
