Expanding the successful LightningTM range
Australian cookware company Solidteknics has announced the launch of two new products to the
LightningTM range, following the overwhelming support and demand the 21cm LightningTM pan received
in May this year. The engineering team has moved swiftly to craft two new sizes, 18cm and 26cm that completes the set.
The new iron pans will be available through their latest Kickstarter campaign, which sees Australian and international cult followers pledging their support for the high-performing, innovative and only Australian-made production cookware. Launching the first instalment to the LightningTM collection in May, Solidteknics raised over $670,000, despite being in the midst of a pandemic.
A marriage of ancient cookware and cutting-edge innovation, Solidteknics was founded in 2014 by mechanical engineer Mark Henry. With a mission to remove toxic non-stick cookware from kitchens and reduce the
1.2 million imported pans thrown in Australian landfills every year, Henry spent two decades developing this world-first innovative pan wrought from a single sheet of iron.
Made in Sydney from a single sheet of pure Australian iron, the new high-performance 18cm and 26cm LightningTM pans are less than half the weight of cast iron, and built to last – with a multi-century warranty.
“2020 has been a tumultuous year, with the bushfires, floods and now COVID-19, but we’ve been amazed at the drive of Aussies actively seeking out Australian-made products and doing their bit to support local businesses across the country.”
This LightningTM collection is Henry’s proudest achievement yet. “We worked hard to find ways to reduce our manufacturing costs whilst also improving performance. Lighter, hotter and better value, these are our lowest priced pans ever. Suitable for induction, gas, the oven, the BBQ and even a campfire”.
The only production cookware made in Australia, Solidteknics hopes to lead the charge in showing other Australian companies that it is possible to continue to manufacture in Australia.
