Copper stone pans

Hi. This might be a daft question but can Cooper stone pans be used on an induction hob?

TIA Desmond.

If the pan is some sort of stoneware, no, it will not work. Cookware suitable for induction cooking must be made from some sort of ferrous material. In other words, if a magnet sticks to (firmly) to the bottom of it, you should be able to use the cookware.


Hope this helps.

Hi Thanks for that. I do have pans that do. I thought that it was partially copper might have worked.

Check the steel plate on the bottom of the pans with a magnet.

If the magnet is not attracted to the pan, there is another possibility - a simple metal plate, often used as a "flame tamer", though it isn't as good as a regular flame tamer, for that purpose. You'll have to experiment to get the proper heat level, but it does work.

Hi This is a mix of cpper and stone so the question rely is will it work with copper. Maybe Copper is not Ferris material.

You've already been given an answer. If a magnet sticks, it will work with induction. Also, try checking the manufacturer's and/or seller's web site. Your answer is there and easily found.

BTW, it's ferrous, not ferris.

Using a plate defeats the reasons for using induction, i.e. efficient energy usage, fast heat-up times, and less heat output.

This is just a method to help people use pans that wont work on their induction, esp. if that's all they have. And a stone pan would be more of a simmering pan, and a friend uses one of those plates for simmering - her stove doesn't go quite low enough. I only have an induction burner (which simmers better than my range burners) which I only use in the summer, so I don't heat up the place. Now, I'm back to the high heat gas!

The pan will indicate if it's induction capable by the induction symbol on the bottom.
