Carbon steel is common in woks used for Asian-style stir-fry cooking but is otherwise not commonly used for cookware in the U.S. Like cast iron, carbon steel must be seasoned to reduce sticking, rusting and to prevent food from reacting with the cookware. Also like cast iron, once properly seasoned, carbon steel is almost as stick-resistant as modern non-stick cookware. Flat bottomed carbon steel cookware works well with induction cooktops; however round-bottomed woks will work only with specially designed Chinese style induction cookers.
The cookware is very lightweight and easy to lift and balance. Some of the heavier duty cookware is heavy to lift and when you add contents to the pots, making them even heavier, it can be a struggle to lift them off the stove. The lightness and balance of this set should make it possible to toss and flip with ease.
Lastly, some but not all non-stick cookware is induction-ready. When buying non-stick cookware, use the same rule as when buying stainless cookware. If you are buying the cookware in a store and have physical access to it, then you can use the magnet test; the cookware is induction ready if and only if a magnet sticks to the bottom. If you don`t have physical access, then unless the merchant or manufacturer states that the pan is induction ready, you should not purchase the pan for use with an induction cooktop.
