How do I know if my pans are induction?

To check if your pans will work, hold a magnet next to the pan base; if it attracts, the pan will work on induction. Another way of checking is to pour a small amount of water into the pan and then place it on the cooking zone. If the display starts flashing, the pan is not compatible.

Subsequently, one may also ask, how do I know if my cookware is induction ready?

To tell if a pot or pan is compatible with your induction stove, hold a magnet to the bottom.

  1. If the magnet clings to the underside, the cookware will work on an induction cooktop.
  2. If the magnet grabs the pan softly, you may not have good success with it on your cooktop.

Secondly, can you use normal pans on induction? Not all pieces of cookware can be used on induction cooktops and stoves. Since induction technology uses the power of magnetism, the cookware piece itself must be magnetic and have a flat bottom. For this reason, cookware made from aluminum, copper or glass, including Pyrex will not work on its own.

Subsequently, question is, what does an induction pan look like?

Stainless steel pans will work on an induction cooking surface if the base of the pan is a magnetic grade of stainless steel. If a magnet sticks well to the sole of the pan, it will work on an induction cooking surface. An "all-metal" cooker will work with non-ferrous cookware, but available models are limited.
