Do induction pans work on normal hobs?
Yeah sure, you can use induction cookware on an electric stove. Electric stoves work by heating the surface of the cooktop which then transfers the heat to the cookware. This means any type of cookware that can work on gas can work on an electric stove (including most that work on induction hobs).
What are the best pans to use on a ceramic hob?
To ensure your ceramic hob remains in good condition and easy to clean, we recommend heavy gauge coated aluminium or hard anodized stainless-steel pans with a thick base. You can also use good quality enamel on steel or cast-iron pans, but these may scratch the hob surface.
Can you use induction pans on non induction hobs?
Most steel pans and all iron ones should work on an induction stove, regardless of how they are coated. You can test this with a magnet – if it sticks, it will work.
How do I know if my pans are suitable for an induction hob?
Induction hobs only work with pots and pans that contain ferrous metal in the base. To check if your pans will work, hold a magnet next to the pan base; if it attracts, the pan will work on induction. Another way of checking is to pour a small amount of water into the pan and then place it on the cooking zone.
Why can’t I use my pans on induction hob?
Induction cooktops doesn’t work if there is no contact with the pan. This is the reason why you have to use cookware with thick plain non-deformable bases. If the base is too thin it can lose its shape easily when cooking at high temperatures and even damage the cooktop in case of overheating.
Do you need special pans for ceramic hobs?
Stone, glass and ceramic pans are not suitable to use on a ceramic hob because they do not conduct heat well. Aluminium, stainless steel and copper pans will work, but they do tend to leave marks on the glass, however because of the easy to wipe surface it should be quick to get rid of.
Do ceramic hobs scratch easily?
Ceramic hobs are a unique type of ceramic glass hence their name, which is very expensive to develop with spare parts that are not easy to find. The glass is not scratch resistant making them susceptible to scratches from pans and if cleaned vigorously.
Which is better induction or ceramic hob?

What happens if use wrong pan on induction hob?
If you try to use a normal pot or pan on an induction hob, the hob ring won’t turn on. This is because a pan for an induction hob must be made from ferrous metal, or have a ferrous metal base. So, when the correct pan is used on an induction hob, an alternating current is passed through it, and that generates the heat.
What happens if you use Aluminium pan on induction hob?
Aluminum or copper alone does not work on other induction cooktops because of the materials’ magnetic and electrical properties. Aluminum and copper cookware are more conductive than steel, but the skin depth in these materials is larger since they are non-magnetic.
Can you use Aluminium pans on an induction hob?
Cookware made only from glass (including Pyrex), aluminum or copper will not work on an induction hob. However, some cookware manufacturers offer aluminum or copper pans with a magnetized base that is specifically designed for induction cooktops.
Why induction cooking is bad?

The more EMF radiation you are exposed to, the greater your risk for developing significant health issues.
What are the disadvantages of induction cooking?
