Induction Compatible Cookware Sets and Pans
What is induction cooking? An induction cooktop is a cooking surface that heats only the pan and its contents. An advantage of this technology is it is energy efficient because it reduces wasted heat when compared to gas and other electric cooktops. An induction cooktop does not have a traditional thermal heating element, so it stays cooler than conventional radiant cooktops.
Induction cooktops require special pans in order to create the magnetic field that heats the cookware, therefore, the bottom of the cookware must have some iron content.
How do you know if your cookware is induction ready? The easiest way to determine this is to take a refrigerator magnet and see if it sticks to the outside bottom of the pan. If it sticks, then the cookware is compatible with an induction cooktop. These cookware sets are shown to be induction ready.
Induction Compatible cookware can also be used on any stovetop (electric, gas etc.)
