An induction cooktop offers an energy-efficient and highly responsive cooking experience, but there a few things to keep in mind when using one.
Use cookware made of a ferrous metal such as stainless steel or cast iron. If a magnet sticks to the underside of the cookware, it’s okay to use on an induction cooktop.
Make sure the cookware has a flat bottom to ensure good contact with the cooktop for even heat distribution.
Use a cookware size that matches the cooking zone. The cooktop might not detect cookware that is too large or too small. If the cookware isn't recognizable, the cooktop won’t heat.
Don’t slide cookware across the cooktop, which can scratch and damage the glass.
Clean up any accidental spill as soon as possible to avoid damage to the cooktop.
While the cooktop itself doesn’t heat, residual heat transferred from the pan makes the cooktop hot. Allow the cooktop to cool before touching.
