NewMetro Design Debuts AUS-ION™ Cookware

NewMetro Design Debuts AUS-ION™ CookwareNewMetro Design, known for its houseware product innovations, introduces AUS-ION™, the first seamless, one-piece formed iron (low-carbon steel) cookware to the US market. 
AUS-ION Cookware features seamless, rivetless, one-piece formed low-carbon steel construction for hygiene and durability. The pans come pre-seasoned for all-natural nonstick, similar to cast iron. They also cook like cast iron, but are half the weight.  Designed and manufactured in Australia from pure Australian iron ore, they are Australia’s leading cookware brand for chefs and consumers and are now available in the U.S. for professional chefs and home cooks alike.


The initial collection features five core products:  

  • 7 and 10.2” skillets in 3 mm thickness to provide even heat and no warping
  • 9.5” crepe/griddle pan in 4 mm for even cooking and an ideal surface for making French crepes, or griddling pancakes
  •  An 11” long handle sauteuse bombée/wok, 5.5” deep and 2 mm thick for fast heating and cooking a variety of dishes and cuisines
  • A 12” dual handle wok is formed from one seamless piece of 2 mm thick low carbon steel for fast and even heating

AUS-ION  is designed to last for many generations, and is virtually unbreakable. Regular use only improves their performance over time, providing a natural non-stick cooking surface, just like cast iron.

Chefs will appreciate that they are seamless, with no rivets or joints to trap food, making them more hygienic and easier to clean than traditional pans.

No matter the heat source, AUS-ION™ steel pans provide fast and even heating across the pan’s surface

this cookware the ideal choice for preparing healthy meals quickly.

AUS-ION pans are pre-seasoned, not coated, so they require no stripping and cleaning before use, unlike most steel cookware. Over time and with use, the pans darken in color as the seasoning builds up to create a natural non-toxic, non-stick surface.

pans are made in Australia from pure Australian iron ore, and imported and distributed by NewMetro Design.

The AUS-ION line will retail for $79.95 to $179.95, at gourmet and specialty retailers and online beginning summer 2016.
