It is with regret that we announce the discontinuation of our original AUSfonte™ cast iron range. Australian manufacturing of this range has always been extremely difficult, and we have tried everything to make production viable, but to no avail.
We are very proud to know that tens of thousands of kitchens around the world will continue to enjoy their innovative AUSfonte™ cast iron cookware in this lifetime, and for hundreds of years to come!
What’s next? We will be focusing on growing and rolling out World-first innovative nöni™ wrought stainless steel and AUS-ION™ wrought iron cookware in the coming months and years.
Why has our AUS-ION™ range been such a success? Our Australian wrought iron conducts heat better than cast iron, so these pans heat faster and more evenly than cast iron. With the shot-peened surface of our AUS-ION™ Satin cookware, it is just as easy to season as cast iron, for the ultimate in forever renewable, natural, build-your-own natural non-stick. Most importantly, AUS-ION™ is 1/2 the weight of cast iron, but cooks the same. The production method for forming our seamless one-piece AUS-ION™ and nöni™ pans is a World-first, with patents pending.
There should be no doubt that Australians make the World’s best iron cookware, and we don’t plan to stop there! If you already own an AUSfonte™ piece, we wish to say thank you for being counted among the earliest adopters of our Australian cookware.
Each remaining AUSfonte™ piece is a rare and precious slice of Australian manufacturing history, and stocks are selling out quickly, so please secure the last pieces at our retailers before they disappear: http://www.solidteknics.com/where-to-buy/ .
These will be treasured heirloom pieces, with each bearing the date of casting for those who will inherit for many generations to come. A wonderful legacy to leave!
With deep gratitude,
Mark, Natasha, Rebecca, Lara, Kara, and the Solidteknics team
