The "bonded" construction has to do with the layer of aluminum in the bottom of the pot which is sandwiched between layers of stainless steel. The aluminum is non-magnetic (paramagnetic); it wouldn't work on the induction burner without the stainless.
The "bonding" has nothing to do with whether or not the pot works with induction. A "pure stainless" pot made up of the same allow of stainless without the aluminum would work just fine.
