This provides excellent heat distribution for even cooking. Other makers use stainless steel with a copper bottom to achieve great results.
Now getting more popular is the energy-efficient,environmental-friendly, non-stick green cookware. A good example is the Cuisinart green pan which is actually hard-anodized cookware with scratch-resistant non-stick, petroleum-free ceramic-based surface coating, applied at a much lower temperature compared to traditional non-stick cookware.

In addition to frequently being non-magnetic, stainless steel`s thermal properties are not well suited for cookware (inductive or otherwise); carbon steel and cast iron both conduct heat much better than does stainless steel. Interestingly, the cookware materials with the best thermal conductivity, aluminum and copper, are non-magnetic and are both quite reactive, so there is really no one material that is ideal for induction cookware. However stainless-steel clad cookware, the fourth type of induction-ready cookware, is made from several different types of metals resulting in cookware that has the desirable properties of each.
