We have recently put in an induction cooktop and purchased new induction friendly saucepans. The smallest saucepan does not work on the hob as I’m now finding out that it does not cover enough of the induction area. I’m keen for recommendations of a suitable product that will allow me to use my smallest pan on the hob.

I do not have an induction stove top but have used a single burner one. I did not find that happen. All of the pots I've tried, from small up have worked. Admitedly I did not use my tiniest sauce pan. It's barely 3" across.

Perhaps only one of the other burners will take the pot? Meaning maybe some of them are for large pots and some for small? Have you tried more than one of them?

I know my friends' stove top has different sizes but she has never mentioned having to place them in a certain area. But then, we've never discussed that.

What model of stove do you have? Many stoves have differnt coils placements under the ring on the cooktop.


It's possible that the coils of your induction area are towards the outer ring of the area, if that makes sense.

You can get an indication of where the inductions coils are if you bring a pot of water to the boil. Look to see where the little bubbles start. That's where the coils are.



If you put your little pot off-centre, on top of where the coils seem to be, that might help.
