Induction cooking is all the rage! And we understand why: cooking on induction is fast, energy efficient and safer than all other hobs. But not all pans are suitable for induction cooking. If you are looking for a new frying pan for your induction hob, there are a number of factors you should pay attention to. We show you exactly which things are important for purchasing the right induction frying pan.
Material of the induction frying pan
Frying pans can be made from different materials. The most popular are the cast iron, aluminum and enamel frying pan. Every material has its advantages and disadvantages. It's not that one is bad or the other is very good. It has everything to do with your personal preference and situation.
Cast iron frying pans: cast iron frying pans are suitable for induction cooking, they have good magnetization which is essential for good heat transfer. They also retain heat well and are therefore perfect for slow preparations, such as simmering and stewing. With such a pan you can easily simmer your dish for hours and hours. Cast iron pans are very durable and last a long time, at Cook and Pan we even give a 25-year warranty on these pans. Cast iron frying pans are heavy and heat up more slowly than other materials. But on the other hand, if you're going to simmer for hours, it doesn't really matter.
Aluminum frying pans : Aluminum pans are lighter than cast iron pans and heat up quickly. This makes them very suitable for faster preparations, such as frying meat, fish or vegetables. Aluminum pans are less durable than cast iron pans, but are often cheaper in price.
Enamel frying pans: Enamel pans have a layer of glass on the bottom and sides, making them very durable and easy to clean. They are also suitable for induction cooking and ideal for preparing stews. Please note that enamel pans are not suitable for high temperatures and cannot be used in the oven.
Of course, there are also other factors to pay attention to when choosing the right induction frying pan for you. In addition to material, we can also divide it into size, thickness and handles.
Size and thickness of the frying pan
If you choose a frying pan, it is important to decide for yourself which size you choose. Which one suits your hob best, and think about the size of the dishes you want to prepare in it. Do you make smaller dishes? Then go for a smaller frying pan. If you choose a frying pan that is too large, this can delay the heating time. Furthermore, it is important to look at the bottom thickness. The thicker the bottom, the better the quality. This means the heat is better distributed and retained longer. The bottom also has a less chance of warping at higher heat. All this results in a more even preparation of your dishes.
Frying pan handles
When choosing a frying pan, also pay attention to the handles. Make sure the pan has sturdy handles that are easy to grip and won't get too hot while cooking.
