Having used cast iron pans, pots and cookers before I was already aware of how good cooking with cast iron is. What a surprise to discover that something which has been around seemingly for ever can actually be improved.
When I got my new Fonte Cast Iron Deep 24cm Sauteuse Pan I was a little blasé – it was just another pan. Well, No! It’s not ‘just another pan’. Not at all! This reaches new heights in delivering quality cookware.
Solidteknics is an Australian business which specialises in making good things even better.
What’s so good about cooking with cast iron? For starters it requires less energy to deliver the finished item. And it doesn’t matter what you cook – it just does it better. The pan comes pre-cured, so you can start using it immediately.
Cleaning is simple and easy – just a light wash and wipe and you’re done.
The handle is large enough to make manoeuvring the pan a painless exercise – yes, cast iron is heavier than aluminium and this handle means you can move the pan about easily AND with minimal heat transferred through it.
No prizes for guessing where our future new cookware items are coming from.
