AUS-ION™ is made from clean Australian iron. Just like old cast iron, you season AUS-ION™ to build and maintain your own healthy, naturally non-stick surface. AUS-ION™ is perfect for everyday oil/fat-based frying, grilling, roasting, stir-frying etc. Whilst you can cook anything at all in our AUS-ION™, acidic foods and liquids can erode the seasoning. Though the beauty of seasoned iron is it's forever renewable! Our nöni™ range is made from ferritic, non-nickel stainless steel. nöni™ is very low maintenance as it does not require seasoning - cooks like iron, cleans like stainless! Like all stainless, nöni™ is not considered 'non-stick' though can work well with the right balance of heat and fat. nöni™ is ideal for all liquid boiling, slow cooking, acidic sauces, and is very low maintenance. AUS-ION™ and nöni™ are designed to complement each other to cover all of your cooking needs. LEARN MORE

What cookware do you currently own? Are there any specific pieces that you want to replace, or are there any gaps you are looking to fill in your current cookware collection? What size of cookware do you find yourself reaching for most often?
If you already have frypans and saucepans, but are wanting something you can stir fry and deep fry in, then one of our Woks may be what you are looking for.
How many people are you cooking for? Is it just you and a partner, or are you cooking for a small army? Do you like to cook in large batches for meal prepping, or do you enjoy cooking just enough for a new meal each night?
If you're cooking meals for a family of 6 every week, then our nöni™ 6L Rondeau Set may be what you’re after.
What is your budget? Equivalent pans are often a bit cheaper in our AUS-ION™ range, as nöni™ costs more to produce.
If you’re just starting out, here are some basic cookware pieces ideal for any kitchen. They’re our most popular sizes, used by both professionals and home cooks:
Dual Handle Pots = nöni™ 6L Rondeau with 33cm Skillet Lid – great for soups, stock, pasta, slow cooking, sauces and big batch cooking.
Our lids are unique - each skillet-lid alone is a high-performance shallow skillet, crepe pan, baking tray, or griddle for all kinds of frying and grilling.
Workhorse Frypans = AUS-ION™ 22cm, 26cm & 30cm frypans. A frypan has sloped sides that taper in at the bottom, and can be used for anything from eggs, omelettes, meat, frittatas, pancakes, pies, even cakes. These pans conduct magnificently and will get you that perfect steak sear! We also have frypans available in our nöni™ range, if your style of cooking is mostly wet, saucy and/or acidic.
