8 MONTHS AGO | Hi,
good quality stainless steel is non-magnetic, so testing it with a magnet is useless.
St/St cookware suitable for induction cooking has steel embedded in its base, the same as some copper items.
I have used induction cooking for years: it is the best!
Regards, Ernst

8 MONTHS AGO | We've had trouble with finding frypans of a big enough size. With a Neff induction cooktop a large percentage of the 'hot plate' needs to be covered otherwise the whole area does not function. Even my largest frypan does not cover enough of the biggest hot plate so only activates the smaller inner circle. This means that food near the edge of the frypan does not cook. Has anyone bought a good large frypan?

8 MONTHS AGO | I have had trouble with fry pans/ skillets. If I use a high heat the base will warp so it bows upwards, then they are useless as the heat does not distribute evenly. Both times they were expensive and supposed to be good for induction. The sales team say they should only be used on medium heat, my view is its a frypan so it should cope with high temperatures.

9 MONTHS AGO | Hello,
My question is: as there are many brands of induction cooktops and prices vary greatly.
How would I know the quality of the brand? Is the price the only indication of a good unit or are there other indications.
Looking forward to your response
