Pan-Handling – A Guide to Cookware. Part 3: Induction Cookware

So far in this series, we have talked about nonstick cookware and also the different types of aluminum and stainless steel cookware. We now turn our attention to a special category: induction cookware. Here, we will discuss what exactly induction cooking is, how it works, and the specifics of induction-ready cookware. What is Induction Cooking? Induction cooking works through electromagnetism. Electricity is sent through an induction coil that generates a magnetic field just above the cooking surface. When induction-ready cookware is placed on the cooktop, the magnetic field rapidly vibrates the molecules in the cookware, heating the pan. It is important to note that it is only the cookware and not the cooktop surface being heated. Since the tempered ceramic or glass cooking surface is unaffected by the magnetic field, it stays cool to the touch. However, you can’t use just any cookware on induction cooktops. So what makes cookware induction-ready? To put it simply, for cookware to be induction-ready, it needs to be ferrous, which means it needs to be made of materials with strong magnetic properties. Therefore, when cooking with induction, cast iron and stainless steel are going to be the metals you want to use. Cast iron has strong magnetic qualities so in most cases, you can count on your cast iron cookware to be induction ready. We say ‘in most cases’ because there are other factors (which are addressed below) that can affect the induction readiness of your cookware. When it comes to stainless steel, it is important not to assume that all stainless steel is induction ready, because not all stainless steel alloys are... read more
