Pots and pans for induction cooking
• Pots and pans must be made from a magnetic material to work with induction cooktops, which induces electrons in the magnetic material to move thus creating heat for cooking.
• Materials that work: cast-iron, steel, magnetic stainless steel, ceramic-clad and enameled pots with an iron pan hidden in the ceramic layer.
• Materials that don’t work: aluminum, glass, and copper pans don’t work unless they’re made with a layer of magnetic material on the bottom.
• An easy test – if a magnet sticks to the bottom of your pan, it can be used on an induction cooktop.
• Induction cooktops feature safe, efficient cooking in that only the pot heats up. The burner itself doesn’t heat up much except from contact with a hot pot so there’s less risk of burning yourself.
• Pots and pans made for induction cooking are available for purchase through our authorized distributors.
