What type of cookware is compatible with induction?

For your cookware to be compatible with your induction cooktop, it needs to be magnetic iron or steel. To make sure your pots and pans will work just fine, try the magnet test, or to put it simply - a magnet needs to cling firmly to the cookware in order to work properly on an induction cooktop's surface. It's also important that your cookware is flat so that it can make contact with the heating source.
  • Stainless Steel - Good for induction cooking plus it is durable, easy to clean and resists staining. However, you will still want to perform the magnet test as not all stainless steel is magnetic.
  • Cast Iron - Good for induction cooking plus it cooks evenly and is similar to stainless steel, is also durable. One thing to note is that cast iron cookware with a rough surface can scratch the cooktop's surface.
  • Porcelain-enamel Coated Metals - The heating characteristics of these pots and pans will vary depending on the quality of the base material and similar to cast iron, this type of cookware must be smooth to avoid scratching the cooktop.
