Fantastic product

On first use it cooked the sausages to perfection and more quickly. The ridges on the pan are the answer to the sausage lover's dilemma, to get the sausage cooked all round and this pan does it.

UPAN Bees wax Cast Iron Seasoning

Working with local Hawkes Bay bee apiarists Dee's Bees we have developed our own special blend of beeswax based cast iron seasoning. 
Beeswax is hydrophobic, meaning it repels water, unlike oil based seasoning which can absorb moisture and become sticky during long storage periods . Applying a thin coat to your cast iron skillet after use will maintain that non-stick seasoning you get with cast iron while repelling moisture during storage and preventing rust.
Made in New Zealand from 100% local ingredients, our seasoning supports local industries and is certified 100% organic.
By using beeswax when seasoning a cast iron pan, a thinner coat can be applied than when using oils so you can also avoid the smell and smoke created from using oil based products such as flaxseed oil or olive oil.

  • 100% Organic New Zealand Beeswax and Oils
  • Palm Oil Free
  • Supporting Local
  • Odour Free
  • High smoke point 204.4 C (400F) 

With care and good maintenance you will get a life time of use from your cast iron cookware

We recommend using beeswax for maintaining or repairing damaged cast iron fry pans and your UPAN.

How long does it take to cook the sausages?

The UPAN takes between 9-10 minutes to cook the sausages fully once preheated. Watch our video comparing the different results between the UPAN and a traditional cast iron skillet here  Pan vs UPAN

What is a seasoned cast iron coating and what happens if it gets damaged?

The seasoned finish on the UPAN is 100% flaxseed oil that is been heated to 800c. This bonds it to the cast iron to form a natural non-stick coating free off PFAS (poly-fluoroalkyl substances).

Can you use cast iron on an induction hob ?

  • Solid electric hobs
  • Radiant ring elements
  • Gas burners
  • Ceramic cooktops
Its single piece cast iron construction means it can also be used
  • In an oven
  • On a bbq

Check out the UPAN being used on a gas element then straight into the oven when making Toad in the Hole

    Are the UPAN packaging and shipping cartons recyclable?

    All our packaging is brown paper based and the shipping cartons are made specifically for the UPAN to minimise waste
    Apart from cooking sausages what else can you use the UPAN for ?
    The design of the UPAN concentrates the heat to a central point, which makes it ideal for cooking bacon and the curved surface will allow you to sear meatballs evenly all the way around. Watch our two videos on cooking Crispy Bacon and Meatballs
