What does nöni™ stand for?
Nothing in language, but it's short for our original full product name: Conductive Seamless Stainless No Nickel. Too much of a mouthful!

What is nöni™ made from? Does it have clad layers?
Made from one seamless 3mm wrought monobloc of very tough ferritic stainless, this material won't crack like cast iron. There's no synthetic coatings or enamel, and there's no rivets, welds, seams or clad layers to eventually fail. It would be clear to any experienced engineer that there is far more than one century of life in nöni™ cookware, and quite possibly millennia.....

Our multi-century warranty applies whether used in the home, restaurant, or campfire.....nöni™ is basically indestructible!  

Do the handles get hot?
Our handles are well known for not getting too hot in normal stovetop cooking. We're mechanical engineers, and we found a way to heavily reduce the heat conduction up handle (vents in neck are carefully placed). So, despite our pans being made from a single monobloc of highly conductive ferritic material (not regular austenitic stainless), you can usually lift them with bare hand. It's our long handles that don't get too hot (and short handles too, if not over open flame). Also, if we added rubber or plastic insulation, like all the importers, we wouldn't have a multi-century durable product.There's lots of independent reviews on this innovation all over the web, and discussions on our members group: www.facebook.com/groups/solidteknicsusers/ .

FAQ: nöni vs All-Clad
Thank you for your interest in our innovative seamless nöni™cookware! There are more differences than similarities, in everything that is important in cookware. Our patented seamless 1 piece construction is the most obvious. This world-first innovation means that we don't need to rivet on a handle: our pans are one solid monobloc, so they're indestructible (expect centuries, not decades) and hygienic. Our 3mm thick solid ferritic stainless is nickel-free and more conductive than the common austenitic stainless steels, even when they are sandwiched in a multi-ply with aluminum, copper, etc. our Windsor pan body shapes are better at cooking that needs evaporation, and our lids are not just lids: they are also high performance flat skillets in their own right. All-Clad is one of the best of the old traditional cookware styles. Nöni is a whole new era, in our humble opinion. I hope you have a chance to try the differences!


How can it have a multi-century warranty?

Nöni conductivity

Everyone is shocked at the conductivity of our Australian AUS-ION, even the experienced chefs! Our nöni material is even more shocking, because everyone is used to the old school tri-ply or disc-base stainless pans. Our ferritic stainless is highly conductive, and solid from the heat source through to the food. We were very fortunate to find a source of this material in Germany for our Aussie nöni (no stainless is made in Australia), and exactly the same spec in the USA for our US production, using US steel.

How can solid stainless steel be highly conductive?

This is a whole new way to make cookware from one solid monobloc of highly conductive stainless. More conductive than all the old clad multi-ply cookware that has dominated at the top end for decades.


Isn't solid stainless steel a poor heat conductor?
Absolutely not, this is our exceptional conductive solid ferritic stainless steel!

Our USA-made stainless is not the more common Nickel austenitic stainless steel: our ferritic grade is much more heat conductive. In fact, it is almost twice as conductive as normal austenitic stainless, so it heats faster than complex old clad multi-ply stainless steels traditionally used by all the other top brands. They also need rivets/welds/screws. Our nöni™ is one solid seamless multi-generation indestructible monobloc of tough ferritic stainless.

Any thermal images of the heating vs a clad piece?

The university tests are coming up, but for now we’ve got 3rd party videos under controlled conditions, and the real world feedback from chefs and experienced cooks. Some is on the Kickstarter site, and even more in reviews and the @solidteknicsusers FB group.

Why our ferritic stainless is loved by chefs

Our ferritic stainless is loved by chefs because they can feel how conductive our cookware is versus the old multi-ply cookware they've grown used to over the decades, including the top brands. This video clearly shows it: one solid thick monobloc of the right material is more efficient than multiple conductive alloy layers fighting to overcome an insulating final layer. 

Non-Nickel ferritic stainless = magnetic = induction compatible!

Ferritic stainless is magnetic (not magnetised), because it is not an alloy with Nickel. Most stainless pans (and benchtops, forks, spoons, etc), are non-magnetic austenitic (Nickel-Chromium) stainless, which is a very poor thermal conductor. Check your stainless around the kitchen: if a magnet doesn't stick strongly, it is austenitic. A concern with austenitic cookware is that studies have found Nickel leaches into your food, particularly the first few cooking cycles, and with acidic foods (when new you should boil 4 batches of water and discard: by nature of migration of the ions, most of the leaching happens in the beginning).   

Ferritic stainless is nearly twice as thermally conductive as austenitic stainless, so you can turn your burners down and use less energy, on any heat source!
