True Induction stove top

Hi - I have a two burner True Induction drop in cook top. It worked fine this morning with a heavy stainless steel pan, ten inch diameter. A magnet definitely sticks to the bottom. When when I try to use it, I select heat number not temp, leave it at three, I get three dashes and a beep, the heat number, then again three dashes and a beep.

Three dashes means the pan doesn't have enough iron in it.

It worked this morning. What an I missing?

Is it the same on both burners? When ours did that, it was the pan that was the problem. I know you said it worked in the morning. Try unplugging it, wait 30 seconds and plug back in and see what happens? I can't think of anything else to do.

Have never experienced that with mine. I have Magma nesting pans and antique Griswold cast iron.

How does your cast iron do on the surface of the cooktop or do you use a silicone mat under it?

It is my understanding that you must use cookware that is intended for use on an induction cooktop. If your cookware is not specifically made for induction cooking it may not work properly.

Good morning, mine is built in so I will go pop the breaker for a while. We are using pans that are completely steel and one pan that said on the label made for induction stovetops. I'll let everyone know what happens this morning.

Also I just learned on this thread how to use all of my cast iron cookware. Nice!

Hi - Doesn't heat up the kitchen in the summer, quicker, no need for propane, easier to clean up as it's a sealed surface, top cools down quickly so less chance of a burn, responds quickly to control input changes, and I'm sure there are some I missed.

No burnt food or other materials on the stove top due high temperature of the top.

Heats the metal not the cook top. Acts like a microwave of the iron in metal to generate heat.

We also have the Magnum nesting cookware and it works great with the induction stovetop; we have never had an issue.

We bought a small copper chef egg pan at Walmart (in reality a copper painted aluminum pan) with an induction plate on the bottom and it worked a couple of times—then got the dashes and wouldn’t work. We replaced with a higher quality skillet that works without issue.

So, not sure my response helps, other than to say you’re not alone. Having a pot/pan designed for induction will no doubt work better. Those with the added plate on the bottom—at least in our experience—didn’t work well.

Good morning. Flipping the breaker did the job. It worked fine after I cycled power. Thanks, everyone!
