Our team are experts in the field of cooking, we have created a comprehensive guide for you on purchasing the best induction pans. Because, are you considering equipping your kitchen with an induction hob? Then it is important to know which pans and pots work best on your hob.

What types of induction pans are there?

There are many different types of induction pans available and it can be difficult to determine which is the best choice for your kitchen. The materials Aluminum, Cast Iron, Stainless Steel and enameled pans are the popular options for your pan arsenal. It is not only important to look at induction suitability. The size of the pans and pots or the dishes you want to prepare are also important when choosing the right types of pans.

Most commonly chosen material for induction pans

However, the most important consideration when choosing induction pans remains the material from which the pans are made. Induction hobs work magnetizing, which means that the induction pans need a magnetic bottom to conduct the heat from the hob. The above-mentioned materials are all suitable for induction because they are magnetizing. Are you unsure whether the bottom is magnetizing? If you have a magnet at home, you can hold it against the bottom of the pan, so if the magnet sticks, the bottom is magnetizing.

How big should induction pans be?

Another important aspect when choosing induction pans is the size. It is important to choose pots and pans that fit the cooking zones of the hob. If the size of the induction pan matches the cooking zone, the heat transfer is best. So pay attention to the size of the pans, small pans and pots can be inefficient on a large cooking zone, and too large a pan could waste too much energy. Therefore, always choose the right size pans. Do you often cook large dishes? Then choose a slightly larger pan. Do you cook for 1 to 2 people? Then go for a smaller one. You are often fine with an average size and, to be on the safe side, you can purchase a small pan if necessary. For example, an induction frying pan 28 cm, together with a frying pan of 24 or 20 cm. Always comes in handy!

The shape of the induction bottom

In addition to the material and size, it is important to take into account the shape and depth of the defect. Pots and pans with flat bottoms work best on induction hobs because they distribute heat more evenly. Pots and pans with higher sides can be useful when cooking dishes that contain more liquid. Furthermore, the bottom thickness is also important, the thicker the bottom, the better. We are always fans of the By C&P collections, which have a 4 mm bottom, which is optimal for conducting heat. Furthermore, they are also reasonably priced.

Maintenance of the induction pans

When choosing induction pans, it is also important to take into account the maintenance and durability of the cookware. Stainless steel and cast iron pans are both durable and easy to clean, while enameled pans are often more prone to damage and more difficult to clean. It is never unwise to wash and grease the pans by hand every now and then to keep them in top condition!
