June 1st, 2018 - US-ION™ Launches on Kickstarter
The Solidteknics iron pan is crafted with American iron, is impossible to break, and cooks and seasons like cast iron. Best of all, it is much lighter in weight and simply easier to use.
Whether you’re chasing the perfect caramelized brussels sprouts or finding the just-right sear to your steak, our Solidteknics wrought iron pan is as versatile in the kitchen as you are. From coals, to cooktops, to the kitchen table, this pan was designed for the cook who wants to make memories just as much as recipes.
Clever design, clever cooking
We took inspiration from French carbon steel pans — for centuries a chef's favorite — and made ours even better. We have discovered an innovative way to form a pan body and handle as a single solid monobloc, removing all welds, screws, and the dreaded rivets (the bane of every chef's existence). This seamless wrought construction makes our pans easy to clean, and basically indestructible (you can say goodbye to loose jiggly handles).
Old-timers, you thought American-made 'wrought iron' was extinct?! In the nostalgic old puddled and hand-wrought form it is. Good news: this is real iron, and it's machine wrought (worked into final seamless pan shape from flat), so it is indeed 'wrought iron'. Just modernized, optimized, revolutionized for a new era in cookware. Time for a new definition!
At solid 3mm, our thicker pans won't warp under high heat like thin carbon steel pans, which means you can safely cook with any heat source, from induction to roaring campfire. Our wrought iron is also more conductive than carbon steel, cast iron, and stainless steel meaning that our pans heat quickly, and foods cook evenly and consistently, every time. The biggest steaks also don't cool down our 3mm thick, conductive iron mass: they sear like heavier cast iron!

Our first USA Kickstarter ended today with 439 backers supporting our introductory campaign and will receive 'First Edition' stamped pans. We are so very grateful for everyone who pledged toward our successful first USA nöni Kickstarter campaign. The cooks of the world have spoken and said, 'YES indeed, we DO want healthy, sustainable, multi-generation-durable, highly conductive stainless steel cookware made in the USA!'
Together we're making history, not just the best cookware!
