Here at SOLIDTEKNICS™ we have developed two ranges of innovative, world-first, world-class cookware: AUS-ION™ wrought iron (formed mild or low-carbon Australian steel), and nöni™ ferritic (non-nickel) wrought stainless steel cookware. Both ranges are made in Australia from a single sheet of the finest quality material, with no rivets, welds or synthetic / short-lived coatings ever.
100% designed and made in Australia; non-toxic, healthy, sustainable and multi-century durable!
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:
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.

nöni™ is our ferritic, non-nickel stainless steel range. Our nöni™ pans are formed into shape from one solid sheet of 3mm ferritic (nickel-free) stainless steel. We use ferritic stainless steel because it is free of the heavy metal 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 also magnetic and therefore very compatible with induction cooktops, without any need for clad/ply layers. nöni™ cookware is perfect for all boiling, slow cooking, acidic cooking, while still being conductive enough to sear a steak, and is very low maintenance.

Both ranges can be used on any heat source!
All of our cookware can be used on any heat source, indoors and out (except microwave ovens)!
AUS-ION™ is 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. AUS-ION™ is currently available in three finishes: QUENCHED™ (new), RAW and SATIN (the latter two are excellent, though currently being phased out in favor of our QUENCHED™ finish).
QUENCHED™ is not a synthetic coating, it is still natural, real seasoning, the way our forebears achieved non-stick - we've just done the oven seasoning for you to form a strong foundation, so you can get cooking straight away. You may choose to do a little stovetop seasoning for faster, ideal non-stick performance, otherwise it is perfectly fine to just let it build up naturally through cooking.
As QUENCHED™ is still real, natural, oil-based seasoning on iron pans; so acidic foods, simmering/boiling liquids and detergents, can all still erode seasoning (especially new seasoning), but don't worry! Natural, oil-based seasoning is always fixable with a little touch-up seasoning, or if non-stick isn't as important to you, just keep cooking. A bit of patchiness is normal, our pans are made to be the workhorses in your kitchen, not the beauty queens. Put simply, it's not about the way they look, it's about the way they cook!
AUS-ION™ QUENCHED™ is a great option for those new to iron cookware and seasoning!
AUS-ION™ cookware is wrought from a single sheet of Australian iron. There are no joins, screws, rivets or coatings; for easy cleaning and durability.

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 nickel-free, 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.
