Induction cook tops create a magnetic field that only works on cookware made of a magnetic material.
The best way to be certain whether your cookware will work on an induction hob is use a magnet. Does the magnet stick to the cookware? If your answer is yes, then it is compatible.
Cast iron is made of a magnetic material, and therefore makes it a great option for your induction hob. Although stainless steel looks beautiful, is dishwasher friendly and much more popular than cast iron, it unfortunately causes confusion when it comes to induction cook tops.
The problem stems from the fact that all stainless steel is not magnetic. In order for stainless steel cookware to be induction friendly it has to have 18/0 stainless steel or another magnetic material built into it. Manufacturers that want their cookware to be induction compatible typically add 18/0 stainless steel to their cookware to make it induction capable.
The design of your stainless cookware really will not matter. It can be disc bottom or clad in design, as long as it has 18/0 stainless steel or another magnetic material, it will work with induction cook tops.
