Test pan set induction
Which pans are suitable for induction? If you want to test a pan set for induction, you can do that yourself. This is how you test which pans are suitable for induction: If you stick a magnet to the bottom, the pan is magnetizable and you can cook with it on induction. The bottom of the pan may be affected if you used it on gas. This can make the pan less magnetic due to the deposits on the bottom of the fire, which can also scratch the new hob. You can do a damage test by taking a newspaper and placing the pan on it, if you move the newspaper and the newspaper tears, you cannot use the pan on the induction plate. If the pans pass the test, you can use them on an induction hob. Keep checking whether the pans without a thick bottom warp or not.
