One of the test that is conducted by Good Housekeeping is for heat conduction. Heat conduction is the most important factor in cookware construction (per the testing committee). They test other items but if the cookware fails this test then what is the point? The Martha cookware did not fare very well . The report concluded that the Martha Stewart cookware 12-inch nonstick skillet retained heat poorly. The skillet got too hot over high heat The skillet heated too slow over a low flame. Editors say it burned onions in their sauté tests.
Typically, clad cookware has outer layers of nickel stainless steel for durability, non-reactivity and for its shiny luster, an inner layer of either iron, carbon steel or magnetic stainless steel and another inner layer of either aluminum or copper for its high conductivity (the goal of this layer is to conduct heat evenly across the surface of the pan bottom for even heating). Some clad cookware will utilize magnetic stainless steel for the outside layer of the pan bottom rather than cladding the bottom in nickel stainless steel; this eliminates 1 layer while retaining all of the important properties of clad cookware. Because clad cookware has the best properties of several different materials, it is an excellent choice for induction cookware. There are several excellent high-end brands of clad cookware and numerous less expensive brands.
Because of induction`s growing popularity, many manufacturers whose cookware is compatible with induction cooking will state this in their product descriptions. In addition you can perform an easy test: generally speaking, if a magnet sticks to the bottom of a pot or pan then that pot or pan can be used for induction cooking. Conversely, if a magnet does not stick to the bottom of the pan, then the pan cannot be used for induction cooking.
You can leverage the advantages of induction cooking provided you have the right kind of cookware, as described in this article. Future installments of the Induction Cooking Explained series will take a closer look at why induction cooking is more environmentally friendly that other cooking techniques and will describe some of the advanced features available on induction cooktops.
