Made in Australia from clean 3mm thick 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. 

Shown here with our 18cm AUS-ION™ Skillet: 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.

Excellent product

I was nervous going from my non stick frying pan, but I'm fabulously happy with my frying pan! I cured it 3 times then cooked a chicken stir fry. The meat didn't stick, and I felt so happy that I was cooking using a healthy pan! Fabulous.

Nice bit of metal, made really well. Good weight and easy to handle. Love that proper metal sound as I hear the food sizzle. Never had to season pans as I've always used pretend metals and artificial coatings... but after getting the knack of seasoning and maintaining the pan, it's easy, enjoyable and clearly more healthy to use. I'm slowly getting better with this lost skill that we should all have and I'm loving the return to the way cooking should be and I am so glad I am not stuck in the vicious modern cooking brain-washing that goes on with the crap most big retail stores try to sell you. I feel like this pan has finally got me on the right education path for cooking, learning daily and loving the experience.

Pleasantly Surprised

After reading reviews about people not being able to get a non-stick feel to these pans.. thought I'd go the quenched one for my first pan. After the basic seasoning... I was able to cook an egg with no issues an no sticking! On a carnivore diet so going to be A LOT of steak and eggs cooked on this pan :)

Just wanted to reply and to let you know after spending thousands of dollars on different types of "non stick" pans over the years we have found our forever pans. I am so happy with them and have carefully followed your instructions for use. Always looking at your Facebook page for advice from other users which is great. We will be purchasing more over time. I can now cook a perfect fluffy omelette without it sticking to the damn pan! Thank you so much.
