Andrew James Digital Electric Induction Hob 2000 Watt,
This review is from: Andrew James Digital Electric Induction Hob 2000 Watt
We bought two of these units as replacements for our old induction hobs, now given to our daughter. So far, we have found them very simple to use and extremely reliable and at a fraction of the cost of the old ones. We're probably stating the obvious but this type of hob works only with stainless steel cookware (use a magnet to check the base of your pans).

St/steel doesn't help induction cooking, it's the ferrous content of(iron) the pan base that helps. St/steel has many grades, and varying amounts of iron in it.

I did not know it only worked on stainless steel!

Cookware doesn't have to be stainless steel, but it does have to be a ferrous metal - which, in this context, means a stainless steel base to the pan OR a cast-iron pan. Just looking like stainless steel isn't enough, as plenty of those have a copper or other metal core. It's worth the effort of getting suitable pans; I'd never go back to gas now.
