The simply Calphalon Stainless product line is designed for home cooks on a budget. This line is made of 18/10 stainless steel and is easy to use and maintain. There is also the Calphalon Everyday cookware that is still very durable, with a non-stick surface. With both of these product lines, it is recommended that you do not use metal utensils with them, or use them under a broiler.
One excellent choice for clad induction compatible cookware is multi-ply surgical stainless steel cookware marketed as waterless cookware. Even if you do not intend to use waterless cooking techniques, many of the same properties that make cookware well suited for waterless cooking also make it suitable for induction cooking. Just make sure that one of the layers in the multi-ply cookware is magnetic as this will not always be the case.
If you are the fussy, passionate cook, with an eye for perfection, and who does not mind spending time in the kitchen, whether preparing, cooking or cleaning up after a job well-done, then you might prefer quality stainless cookware, the gourmet cookware preferred by world-class chefs.
Unlike gas and conventional electric cooking elements, induction elements do not heat up and then transfer heat to the pot or pan. Instead, they directly heat the pot or pan via magnetic hysteresis loss. While the home cook or restaurant chef has no need to understand the details of magnetic hysteresis, he or she must be aware that induction cooking only works with pans made of a ferrous (magnetic) material and will not work with aluminum, glass or ceramic cookware. In addition, although steel is normally magnetic, some stainless steels are actually non-magnetic alloys unsuitable for induction cooking.
