If you’ve recently switched to an induction stovetop, you’re likely familiar with the need to double- and even triple-check that your cookware is compatible. Due to the specific nature of the induction cooking process, only certain types of cookware materials will work on these stovetops—so it’s important to make sure you choose the right one. Today, we’ll go over what induction compatibility means and what the best type of cookware is for these types of stovetops.

If you’re looking for stainless steel cookware that looks professional but don’t want to spend a lot of money, the Tramontina Stainless Steel Tri-Ply Clad 12-Piece Set is a great option. The set includes 10″ and 12″ fry pans, 1.5 and 3-quart covered saucepans. This piece fell short in performance

HexClad has patented technology that allows for a dual surface of stainless steel and non stick, which requires less oil, grease, or butter. It’s coating is PFOA-free, non toxic and oven-safe up to 500 degrees. It also features stay-cool handles. Materials used in HexClad are high quality and include a tri-ply construction of stainless steel and aluminum. This makes it scratch resistant. Dishwasher safe and backed by a lifetime warranty.

If you’re looking for an entry-level cookware set, this one from Calphalon is a good option. It comes with all the basics – 8-in. frypan, 3-qt. covered saucepan, 6-qt. stockpot, 5-qt. saucepan- and it’s very easy to use. The non-stick coating is effective, but it does start to wear off after a few months of use. And while the price is reasonable, the overall quality isn’t as high as some other sets on the market. If you need a decent set of entry-level cookware, this is a solid pick
