Solidteknics AusFonte

shoplife2019 | Jul 19, 201906:31 AM     12

I purchased a Solidteknics AusFonte Bigga Skillet (33cm) over a year ago and only used it for the first time today. It is my first cast iron pan ever and I didn’t anticipate how heavy it would be when I ordered it (online) so when I got it I was very turned off by the weight and just tucked it away.

Solidteknics have discontinued the AusFonte line and all the online care and use instructions have disappeared from their website. So, not having any clue about cast iron I placed it on a medium burner on my gas stove and and fried some onions.

After I finished I noticed some discolouration where the burner was in contact with the pan.

Did I damage the pan by using the wrong size burner?? Is it even possible to damage cast iron with high heat?
