Our pans come seasoned, which means you can get straight to cooking! There's no longer any need for lengthy oven seasoning thanks to our Quenched seasoned finish. With a strong, resilient seasoning foundation, your pans are ready to be put to work in the kitchen, right out of the box!
Our Quenched seasoning is a natural seasoning that will continue to build and develop with age and use. The key to a natural non-stick surface is good fat and heat management. To get the best performance out of your pan, we recommend reading the below before getting started. There are a few tips and tricks that'll make your transition to cooking with iron as smooth as can be! There can be a small adjustment period as you get used to cooking on iron, but it's so worth it. Your health, our planet and your food will thank you for it!
All AUS-ION™ pans come seasoned for you with our Quenched finish. We've taken care of the oven seasoning, so you can get straight to cooking! Seasoning is not a synthetic coating. It will change and develop with every cook. Your seasoning is forever renewable and can be touched up at any time! Click the button below for our seasoning guide.
If you have one of AUS-ION™ Baking Trays or new AUS-ION™ Roasting Pans, check out our Baking Tray & Roasting Pan Seasoning Guide.
Our pans are highly conductive, so in most cases, medium will be your new high. We recommend starting with a lower temperature before turning up the heat. With induction, you’ll rarely need to go above medium heat, and we strongly advise against using the boost setting.
NOTE: It's important to always match the size of the burner to the pan – this FAQ shows the ideal burner-to-pan size ratio.
Our Quenched finish is simply real, natural seasoning - it’s not a synthetic coating. This means that it’s very common for the look of your pan to change and develop as you cook. A well-seasoned pan will be dark in colour, though often a bit patchy in reality. Don't worry about how your pan looks - when it comes to iron cookware, what’s important is how it cooks!
Surface blemishes are very normal, even on a brand-new pan! As shown in the below video, a simple wipe-over with some rice bran oil is all it takes to even out the surface.
While our cookware doesn’t have any synthetic, toxic non-stick coatings, you can easily achieve a non-stick, easy-release surface when cooking on iron. The key is a well-seasoned pan, and good heat and fat management!
Want to give your pan a quick season, or fast-track the non-stick effect? See our AUS-ION™ Seasoning Guide!
The key to a non-stick, easy-release surface is good heat and fat management! With these centuries-old tried and true methods, you'll be cooking like a pro in no time. Just like our ancestors did, long before the introduction of synthetic-coated, disposable non-stick cookware!
A well-seasoned pan will often be patchy in reality. Seasoning will change over time and will continue to get better the more you cook. Looks aren’t important - our pans are built for performance! Below is a photo of our founder Mark Henry's pans from his home collection!
