Induction burner cookware

Recommended Posts

The woman who posted about this cookware says she has had hers 10 years and it's still going strong.

I wish I'd known about this set when I had an induction burner in my van. Much easier shopping than taking my magnet to the store and testing every set there.

I shopped my pots and pans at Olly's and other overstock stores. I have a small magnet on my key ring. Really, it is not that much trouble. But that seems a nice set. I would expect it to be some light weight stuff based on the price for so many pans. I have one skillet and one saucepan and a kettle  that I use regularly. A few others sit and gather dust.

You'd think so but the poster has been using hers for ten years so it must be sturdy.

With all due respect, these days most cookware is marked as to its ability to work with induction--no magnet required.  There's no particular reason to use the link the OP provided; there are lots of alternatives. 

FWIW if you want cookware you can pass along to the next generation, I suggest you purchase AllClad.  It's very pricey but it will last forever and it's even US made.

Which is why many people will buy the less expensive set. If it works well, why pay more?

Most induction burners have an "active area" that is only about 4" in diameter.  When you use pots larger in diameter than the active area it's important that they conduct heat well enough to minimize any temperature differential from the center to the outer edge.  Most better stainless steel cookware usually has a layer of copper or aluminum sandwiched between layers of steel to aid with heat distribution.    I know that some people like to use cast iron with induction burners but I would think that could result in significant center to edge temperature differences.

AllClad has been a leader in bonded layer cookware; there are quite a few others available these days.  I'm not justifying what AllClad charges.  I'm only saying the their cookware cooks very well and lasts forever.

I did look at AllClad. Way above my income. Shopping at Olly's I have found the better grade of stainless Farberware and KitchenAid at an attractive price, inductive tested with my magnet. I bought a Cuisnart non-stick even though it failed the magnet. It is used on my butane stove. It is the best non-stick I have ever used.

From the link I posted, "Designed for quick and even heat distribution, the impact-bonded tri-ply base (THE BOTTOM) consists of (CONSTRUCTED WITH) 18/10 stainless steel, an aluminum core, and magnetic STAINLESS STEEL "
