Induction cookware

We are thinking about changing the gas cooktop out to a True Induction cooktop. Annette thinks the new cookware would be too expensive. What would a good set of induction cookware cost?

Are you sure the cookware you have won't work? What kind do you have now? If a magnet sticks to the bottom, it'll work. Otherwise, most brands have induction compatible cookware now.

For non-stick, we're quite happy with this line of skillets: http://www.amazon.com/Ozeri-Textured...dp/B005473FMO/

Not any metal pot. Pure Aluminum doesn't work.

No need to go to the expensive specialty shops like W-S. Do a search on Amazon.

Any and all cookware that you currently own that is magnetic will work on an induction cooktop. I mainly use Lodge cast iron skillets, and three Lodge flat bottom porcelain coated Dutch ovens for 90% of my cooking on the induction cooktop at home.

For a motorhome, a "fancy set" I would recommend is the A10-366-IND Stainless Steel, Ceramic coated self-nesting set , for induction made my Magma. It's $284 on their site, or $under $206 on Amazon.

In my motorhome I use a Coleman Stainless Steel Expedition series camping cookware set, (discontinued long ago). I use a NuWave PIC, (Portable Induction Cooktop - as seen on TV). I also regularly use a Fagor Classic 6 Quart Classic pressure cooker with the induction cooktop in my coach for big FAST meals.

If a magnet will stick to the bottom of the pot, then it will work on an induction cooktop. In fact, when I bought my induction cooktop, it came with a refrigerator magnet to test pots with.

No aluminum, of course, but even (some) stainless cookware will work. I have a set of tri-clad (stainless over a copper core) and the saucepans work on induction but the saute pan doesn't- who knows?

Once you have it you will never go back to regular electric.

I just bought this 10 piece stainless steel induction cook set that easily nests within one another for great storage. It's made for RVers and boaters. I also bought the matching colander.

Hi Joe & Annette,

Recently purchased a great set of cookware from Costco. com. Tri-ply and induction capable. We really love the set and it is a great value!

See here:http://m.costco.com/Cuisinart%C3%82%...100099062.html

I also bought the pot protectors so that you don't have the clanging noise as you're driving down the highway.

Not all metal works..This information comes from the instruction manual that came with MY induction cooktop..

Test cookware with the enclosed magnet (Note any refrigerator magenet will work) if the magnet does not stick then the cookware will not work.

Some Stainless it will not stick to,,Aluminum and copper are no go

Steel. (non stainless) some stainless, and cast iron are all good.

I have some T-Fal Professional series fry pans.. A Lodge dutch oven and some other pans it works well with.

I would rather cook with gas.. but that costs more.

Thanks folks! I appreciate all the info! That Magma set looks nice, but is there a skillet in it that I'm not seeing?

We bought a Rapid Chef set that we have used for two years full timing. We are very pleased with the small space taken up with the nesting feature and the ease of clean up. You might want to price shop at marine websites for galley ware in case you can get better pricing. We bought from this company without problem.

I too looked at the magna set but it was just not have what I needed for a well rounded cookware set. Also, the magna is only triply on the bottom. For that reason I opted for the set in my previous post. Once you use a full triply cookware set, triply all the way up the sides, you will never go back. Much more even heat throughout the pots and pans.

I have made it a priority to have a good versatile cookware set and have made the room to store them. All things considered for me, if I bought the magna set, I would need to buy another pot or pan to supplement to round out the set and therefore would not gain that much savings in storage.

Don't get me wrong, the magna is a great set but may not be worth the compromises in versatility and price compared to other sets available. I wish someone would make a good quality nestling set made with triply throughout and include a versatile useful fry pan.

Just one other point of view,

Stuart

Joe.....When we changed out our gas cooktop to the True Induction unit, we also bought the Magma cook set. It's a really GOOD quality set and the nesting makes for easy storage. I also ordered their pot protectors to make sure everything is quiet.

You;re right,, it doesn't come with a large skillet. I looked for that separately and found a nice 12" model that we bought separately. I just can't say enough about the quality of the Magma unit for the price.
