This pan is built to withstand even the toughest cooking environments and will prove invaluable at home on your stovetop (including induction), in your oven, or outside with your BBQ, fire pit, pizza oven or campfire. Get the matching 31cm XHD Skillet-lid!

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! 

As demonstrated here with our 35cm AUS-ION™ Bigga 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.


  • Made in Australia from clean Australian iron.
  • Patented seamless, one-piece design. NO rivets, welds or toxic and/or short-lived coatings!

All of our pans are designed to fit in a standard 600mm domestic oven, though we recommend checking measurements prior to purchase as 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.

Aus ion pan

I’ve been watching this product for years but couldn’t justify giving up my old cast iron on gas. I’ve recently moved and the pan wasn’t compatible with the induction cooktop so I bought an expensive non stick pan which left a ‘flavour’ in the food and it lasted 6 months. I bit the bullet and bought my first Solidteknic pan and my only regret is not buying it yeas ago and ditching my cast iron. I’m so happy !

Simply the Best !

We purchased this 4mm frypan for our son-in-law after he was reluctant to hand our first edition ( 01/ 11/ 2019 ) 31 cm x 3mm frypan back …. Didn’t want to go without the perfect sear ! I just love quality products and these Solidteknics products are the real deal , Enough said !

I inherited my mother's well seasoned cast iron wok - decades old, no rivets and obviously not solidteknics. I was going to be hard to convince but the XHD pan has converted me. The large size is useful even for small families as there's less splatter(therefore less clean up) and more space to really generate heat around the food and seal in all the flavour.

Great investment

We bought this pan a couple years ago after hearing how much safer they are to use when cooking for our family. After sealing it we find it to be better non-stick than any other pan we’ve had. We love the large size of it and that it will last forever. We hope to add more solidteknics pans to our collection.

It lives on my stove top.

I love this pan so much that it lives on my stovetop. The non stick seasoning stops food sticking to it and that makes washing up a breeze.

Best Camp Pan Ever.

By: on 9 May 2023
I bought all my pans and equipment for camping through Solidteknics. The 31cm XHD Pan is a real work horse. Goes on the stove, wok burner, open fire, you name it, If it's to do with camping, you can use it including induction. The lids are great as you can put hot coals on them as well. They are exceptionally well made and better quality than other Australian hand made pans which are riveted and around the same price (I won't mention any names). I've never looked back at buying these products, "Buy Once, Buy Right", is a motto I quite often use, and glad I did.

Gets better with age!

Went out looking for a replacement for my German stainless frypan and came back with cast iron! Superior design and construction makes me proud to have the same nationality! Has become our go to pan for all our cooking for our family of 6 and we were so impressed we went back for seconds and added another 4 pans of varied size. Love that they are easy and safe to clean, and the more you use them the better they are. Looking forward to a lifetime of use.

Best pan

I brought my pan about 10 months ago love using mainly for bacon and eggs and steak .Great size for a family cook up and easy clean

Best all rounder

This pan is heavy duty and is my daily for a family of seven.. I use it on gas mostly but with the lid use it as a camp oven on the open fire. Slow cook on the fire place. It literally gets abused and just gets better for it.. it is the best non-stick pan ever

Cook like a pro.

I use this for just about everything. It's great to start on cook top and then finish in the oven. Mine gets used lots and hard, and still is in great condition!
