    Price in title please OP

  • nice price, bought my 30cm for 35 a few years back

    Just be aware the store name is somewhat a misnomer. They are apparently designed in Australia, but made in China.

    These are terrific to cook on - incredibly fast heat up time but I've been having a bugger of a time getting the seasoning to stay on them. Multiple coats applied but it seems to flake off after a while - I've got a lot of cast iron so aren't doing any of the silly things that could cause this. Just seems they're tougher to season & maintain than cast iron.

  • Thanks, I bought a few!

  • How do these compare to genuinely Australian-made SolidTeknics Aus-Ion range?

      Like comparing the Ballarat 5ths to Richmond in 2020

      • Definitely not 2021 Richmond

        • +1

          Well, even 2021 Richmond is way better but no, I was careful :-D

    • Solidteknics ftw

    Thanks OP. Bought one. Hopefully it'll rekindle my interest in cooking again

    • i think a wok might be better if you want to rekindle interest.

  • Haha. I'm very used to cooking with a wok. But the carbon pan has piqued my interest. Hence the purchase.

  • Thanks OP, bought one. Let's see how I go with seasoning it.

  • Bought both but then realised I have an induction cook top. Are these easy enough to season in an oven?

    • +1

      the website says these pans are compatible with induction hobs…

      • +1

        He needs to season them first, which is hard/impossible to do on induction.

        Hence the oven question.

        • +1

          Yep you can (instructions on the website)

    • I've done it with other pans. I wipe the outside and inside down with vegetable oil. Place the pan upside down in the oven so any oil will drop out.

      I put it on 190°C for an hour and let it cool down in the oven.

      Then wipe out any exceed oil hanging about.

      I just got this off a YouTube video.

      • Cheers. I realised I did it wrong previously with my cast iron!

      • great thanks for the tip. i'll hit up some youtube clips in preparation.

        add to that,
        use linseed oil for best results. you want high smoking point oil. but vege oil will do just fine.

    • Use a portable single gas stove (those camping ones). Inexpensive if you don't already have one.

      I've done two woks on them. Came out perf.

  • Can you remove the silicon handle and does the metal handle gets hot?

    Fresh Australian Store selling Chinese pans

  • I bought two of these last month but unfortunately had to return them. I have spent heads of time seasoning them- by oven or stove top but cant get them to bond.

    • Ah, bought one today, will I be disappointed as well

    • Is the oil smoking? Maybe you're not getting it up to temp.
      With a domestic stove and such a thick gauge pan, you might need to heat it for a while.

      If it's not smoking then it's not hot enough

      I seasoned mine on a domestic gas cooktop. Took about 10mins to do.

      • Invert it and stick it in the oven at 220 degrees for an hour.

        And ensure you have only the thinnest smear of high-smoke temp oil wiped on and padded down with paper towel before oven seasoning it.

        Wallah…

        • That's not how it's spelt

            • @OzBragain: LOL!

              Insta-warriors will be sharpening their pitchforks as we speak…

            • @OzBragain: Even news.com.au should know that's not a spelling mistake, it's just using a wrong word. Which isn't a problem, but a major media outlet should know better.

              • @mickeyjuiceman:

                Even news.com.au should know that's not a spelling mistake, it's just using a wrong word.

                Not a huge problem in terms of survival of the human race but a mistake nonetheless

          • @inasero: True dat.

            Which, incidentally, is not how "dat" is spelt.

            I won't even attempt a big word such as, "anal-retentive"…

            • @UncleRico: Yeah, or that might be too complicated for some people
              BTW, "complicated" means hard :)

  • I don't like the low angle of the handle. But it's solid enough, with pretty thick steel, much thicker than my Pyrolux one.

    • Ships from Amazon
      Sold by The Fresh Australian

      Not exactly a price match when it's same seller

      • How about cashback ?….so it's better via Amazon. XD

        • I understand Kitchen category has 0% cashrewards also free delivery for over $39 if not prime.

  • I highly recommend this.. it will level up your food if you're currently using non stick coated pans.

    These pans are 3mm thick, heavy and retains a lot of heat, which is important for home stoves that aren't very powerful.

    Unfortunately I paid $50 for one last week before the discount. (arrived yesterday)

  • Mine pans arrived today. Very solid. Wow.
    Look forward to using it in my new home in a couple weeks.

    I also received a follow up email, thanking me for my purchase. I thought that was a nice touch. Above the usual confirmation email.
