You all knew something amazing was coming… and finally, the secret is out! Introducing the handiest handle of all - our brand new Removable Love Handle! This innovative take on a removable handle was designed with versatility, durability and usability in mind, and is set to become your HEX pan's new best friend.
You know by now that Solidteknics is all about innovation, and this Love Handle is no exception. This is the world’s first one-piece removable handle with inbuilt locking function, and we have patents pending. Aussie ingenuity!
Keep your handles away from the heat while you cook! Press the bump on the Love Handle to release the heart-shaped locking pin from matching HEX pan corner hearts, for fast and secure attach and release.
As if the launch of our Removable Handle wasn’t exciting enough, we are also launching a new size pan to expand the nöni™ HEX family - a 23cm Deep Base and Shallow Lid. Available as a set or individually. And if you missed out on our 20cm HEX Pans, we're re-launching those too!
Available for pre-order:
New 23cm HEX Deep Base & Shallow Lid (Lovers First Edition)
We are very proud and excited to finally be sharing the Removable Love Handle with all of you, but no one more so than Mark, the engineering brain behind it all! Here he is with a deep-dive into why we love it so much:

You've been loving your new HEX pans, and now with the addition of our new Removable Love Handle, you're about to love them a whole lot more!
Real Solid benefits of our Solid Removable Love Handle with Solid HEX pans:
Offered to our Lovers group in two material options: maintenance-free ferritic stainless steel, and beautiful warm patina bronze - a first for Solidteknics! While there is no functional difference between the two, our brand new bronze provides the opportunity to get your hands on a Lovers Exclusive special collector’s edition in a material that is synonymous with antique heritage cookware: bronze. This ancient material will tarnish naturally into a beautiful warm bronze patina to give it even more of an heirloom feel, for generations.
Compact in size and design, the removable handle allows you to not only store your HEX pans in a compact handle-less way - it also means that you can make the most of a small cooking space without handles getting in the way. One handle is all you need for your entire HEX range! Though multiple handles can come in handy for leaving some handles on stovetop skillets.
Precision investment cast in the USA in one solid piece of metal with in-built long leaf spring and latch. No need to worry about fragile plastic, springs, buttons, latches or grip-pads. Our ingeniously simple design connects with any of the six heart-holed-handles on your HEX pan to create a strong and secure handle that won’t let go until you want it to.
In true Solidteknics style, our Removable Handle is made to last for centuries to come, so it will serve you well for as long as you have it.
Wondering how the Removable Handle works with the lid? If the lid is lined up perfectly, the bottom tines will hit the bottom pan rim first and stop the heart from engaging with the lid. In the short term, you can slide the lid over a few mm if you really want to attach the long handle to remove it. It will then clip on easily. Even easier, use the corners of the relatively light lid and lift off with a cloth. Remember, all Solid Lovers launches are a product development journey, and that is more true than ever with HEX cookware system. A modular system that is so extensive that we've only shown a small fraction so far: pans and handles. There will be small dual handle extensions coming, but it will take time, while so many other more challenging innovations are under development. You could wait until most of the modular system is fully developed and in our retail web store, but that may be several years away, in reality, and decades for the full system. We hope you come along for the ride and secure the first editions.
Size: 225mm long, 57mm wide, 20mm thick, at widest points.

As we mentioned above, we are launching two brand new 23cm HEX Pans to add to the HEX collection! Designed to optimise the space on your stove top and in your oven, our HEX pans pair perfectly with our new Removable Handle to become whatever you need them to be!

With world-first innovations like these, the manufacturing set up is complex. This is why we need to allow a long lead time for our First Edition pieces.
We make it our business to bring innovation to the world and it's you that has access to it first. We are thrilled we can be so close to our early adopters. We do our best to set realistic timelines, however, with innovation, often comes unpredictable challenges. We suggest that you only back our new launches if you are willing to go on our innovative journey with us - which may encounter speed bumps from time to time. Otherwise, you are best to wait for the pieces to reach our online 'buy now' store as by that stage, we have ironed out the manufacturing method.
Your credit card will be charged upon purchase.
The first 20 of each in the series will be held for the Solidteknics museum archive.
