AUS-ION™ and nöni™ are designed to complement each other. Together they will cover all of your cooking needs and each have their own unique advantages. Both ranges are made in Australia from a single sheet of the finest quality material, with no rivets, welds or synthetic coatings.
How do you choose? In short, it depends on what you are cooking, please see below our solid guide.
AUS-ION™ made from pure Australian iron is ideal for all of your everyday frying needs such as shallow frying, grilling - eggs, meat, veggies etc. They are great for pancakes/crepes, browning & caramelisation, especially steaks. It's also excellent for baking - i.e. pies, cakes, pizza, & bread. Roast vegetables, stir fry, fried rice, frittata, omelettes, & toasted sandwiches are also perfect.
nöni™ stainless steel is best used for wet foods & acidic foods such as any slow cooking, pasta, rice, poached eggs, boiled or steamed vegetables, sauces, curries, soups, stocks, jams, paella, risotto, casseroles etc. It's also great for baking in. The bonus - our nöni™ 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. nöni™ cookware - cooks like iron, cleans like stainless! No seasoning required, so is super low maintenance.
Both AUS-ION™ and nöni™ cookware can be used on any heat source, indoors and out (except microwave ovens).
AUS-ION™ is perfect for all of your everyday oil/fat-based frying, grilling, searing and baking needs - eg. sear a steak on the cooktop, then transfer the whole pan to the oven to finish like the pro's, or get that restaurant-quality crispy skin on fish or duck in the same way (ie. start skin down on the stove, flip the poultry/fish and transfer the whole pan to the oven to finish) - put simply, there are just so many mouth-watering results you can easily achieve with quality iron cookware. Our natural, clean iron (ie. impurity-free) AUS-ION™ range cooks and seasons like all bare cast iron cookware but is around half the weight of traditional cast iron. Seasoned iron is the only known non-toxic and forever-renewable non-stick cookware. All other non-stick cookware is made with toxic and/or disposable (synthetic or short-lived) coatings. Suitable for all heat sources, from induction to campfire. SHOP AUS-ION™
nöni™ is our ferritic, non-nickel stainless steel range. Our nöni™ pans are formed into shape from one solid sheet of 3mm ferritic (non-nickel) stainless steel. We use ferritic stainless steel because it is non-nickel and nearly twice as conductive as commonly used 18-10 Austenitic stainless steels (18-10 stainless steel means 18% Chromium and 10% Nickel).
Our stainless steel is magnetic and therefore compatible with induction cooktops, without any need for clad/ply layers. nöni™ cookware is low maintenance and perfect for all boiling, slow cooking, acidic cooking, while still being conductive enough to sear a steak. Cooks like iron, cleans like stainless! SHOP nöni™
The world's only seamless (one-piece) production wrought iron cookware range.
AUS-ION™ cookware is made in Sydney, Australia from clean Australian iron. Perfect for all of your everyday frying, baking, searing and grilling needs. Wrought from a single sheet of Australian iron, there are no joins, screws, rivets or coatings, for easy cleaning and multi-century durability.
Our AUS-ION™ come seasoned for you. It is not a synthetic coating, it is natural, real seasoning, so you can get cooking straight away.
Acidic foods, simmering/boiling liquids and detergents can erode seasoning, especially whilst your seasoning is young. But don't worry! Seasoning is always fixable. We have lots of great FAQs to cover all things seasoning! A bit of patchiness is normal. Our pans are made to be the workhorses in your kitchen, for many generations to come! Don't worry about how they look, what's important is how they cook!

The AUS-ION™ evolution... From raw iron pans, to our lightly pre-seasoned Satin, to now our Quenched seasoning. It's never been easier to make the switch to healthy, sustainable, multi-generational cookware!
Proudly made in Australia, nöni™ is a genuine world-first in cookware.
Encompassing seamless, one-piece, production (patents pending); nöni™ is the first stainless steel cookware range ever to be wrought from a single sheet of the finest quality ferritic stainless steel available. That right, no rivets, welds, cladding or any other components that could potentially fail with time. Our non-nickel, highly conductive ferritic stainless steel is custom-made especially for us in Germany (Australia sadly doesn't make stainless steel anymore). Our tough, highly conductive, nöni™ stainless steel range compliments our AUS-ION™ seasoned iron range, and is perfect for all liquid boiling, slow cooking, acidic sauces, and slow simmering recipes (which are potentially less ideal for naturally seasoned iron), though conductive enough to sear to perfection, and also very low maintenance.

Our cookware is designed to be handed down through generations.
We offer a written multi-century warranty for all of our cookware. This is not a marketing gimmick, just solid engineering! We believe in buying once, and buying well. All of our pans are stamped with the month and year of manufacture.
Our proudest moments are when we hear about families planning to hand down their Solidteknics cookware to loved ones; starting an heirloom tradition that we hope will inspire future generations of loving cooks, who respect healthy and sustainable products.
Better for your health, better for the planet
It’s estimated that more than 1.2 million short-lived (disposable), non-stick pans end up in Australian landfills every year. Synthetic, polymer-based non-stick coatings are toxic in production, and toxic when heated due to the gas those coatings emit. Learn more about all that HERE. SOLIDTEKNICS™ exists to break this toxic and wasteful cycle!
Ultimately, when you purchase SOLIDTEKNICS™ products, you're voting NO to synthetic, disposable pans piling up in landfill and harming our health, and YES to healthy, toxin-free, premium quality cooking tools. Built to last generations.
