While fire has remained the go-to means of cooking food for hundreds of thousands of years, more and more people are embracing a safer and more efficient way to prepare their meals: induction.

With an induction cooktop, preparing plant-based meals can be easier than ever — unless you don’t have the proper cookware, that is.

If you’ve encountered the headache that comes with trying to find induction compatible cookware, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve combed through thousands of reviews to help you find the best induction cookware set so you can spend less time cursing at your induction stove and more time enjoying your perfectly cooked vegan meals.

How do induction stovetops work?

induction hob

Before selecting cookware for an induction range, it’s helpful to understand exactly what induction is and how it’s applied to induction cooktops.

Simply put, induction is the process by which alternating electrical currents create magnetic force that is conducted to a magnetizable body. This process can be used to power everything from electric toothbrushes to magnetic levitation trains and, of course, induction stovetops — but exactly how does that process cook your food?

The answer lies in the cookware.

In an induction stovetop, a magnetic coil that lies beneath its smooth surface transfers electromagnetic energy to the magnetizable pot or pan. As that current of energy swirls around faster and faster within the metallic structure of the cookware, it generates heat.

What makes induction cooking so unique is that the stovetop itself is not generating heat like a gas or electric stove, but turning the cookware into its own source of heat. You can see this neat process for yourself down below.

What are the advantages of induction cooking?

Induction cooking may seem like a foreign concept if you’ve used gas or electric stove tops all your life, but there are several advantages to using an induction cooktop that will surely win you over.

One of the most compelling pros of induction stovetops is how much more efficient they are at heating. A gas burner produces an indiscriminate flame that heats not only cookware but the air around it, resulting in a lot of excess heat and wasted energy.

While electric cooktops may heat up faster than gas-based ones, they generally can’t reach the same high temperatures, and they respond to changes in temperature much more slowly than gas ranges. Induction cooktops, on the other hand, heat up cookware quickly and evenly and respond almost instantly to changes in temperature settings.

As you can see in this video, you can bring water to a rolling boil on an induction stovetop in about half the amount of time it takes on a gas or electric stove:

Another great benefit of induction cooktops is that they’re incredibly safe. The danger of accidental burns is almost nonexistent (just be sure not to touch a stovetop that’s recently had hot cookware on it), you don’t have to worry about gas leaks, and an induction stovetop can’t accidentally be left on if you’re not cooking.

As if that’s not enough to convince you that induction is the way to go, an induction stove top is also ridiculously easy to clean. There are no nooks and crannies to hide crumbs and grease and no heavy cast iron grates to lift — just a smooth, flat surface that you can wipe clean in seconds.

What should you look for in an induction cookware set?

best induction cooktop pots and pans

Choosing a cookware set for an induction range requires some careful consideration. You will (hopefully) be using the same set for many years to come, so you’ll want to make sure each piece is something you’ll enjoy using.

Here are the most important factors to keep in mind when choosing induction ready cookware:

Induction ready labeling

Some cookware will be conveniently labeled as induction ready, either with the actual words “Induction Ready” or a symbol of four overlapping loops (or both).

 

induction cookware symbol

 

While this labeling is useful and eliminates some of the guesswork, there are several other factors to consider when choosing your cookware. Just because cookware is labeled as induction ready doesn’t mean it’s the right fit for your specific needs.

 

Material

Because induction works electromagnetically, you need magnetic cookware. Generally, cookware made of stainless steel, cast iron, or carbon steel work best for induction because these metals are the right balance of magnetic and conductive, allowing them to activate an induction cooktop’s magnets and conduct heat with ease. Aluminum and copper cookware, on the other hand, conduct electricity extremely well but are virtually non-magnetic, so they won’t activate an induction cooktop.

 

That being said, some cookware will have multiple layers of materials (i.e., tri-ply cookware), including a copper or aluminum core. As long as the outermost layer is steel or iron, this type of cookware should work with most induction cooktops.

 

It’s worth noting that both cast iron and stainless steel cookware will benefit greatly from being properly seasoned, which will help them create a natural nonstick coating. If you’re not familiar with seasoning, here’s an instructional video to get you started.

 

 

Should you buy nonstick induction cookware?

Nonstick cookware may seem ideal to a busy home cook who wants a fast and easy clean up after dinner, but there are some potential drawbacks to this seemingly convenient option.

 

Most nonstick coatings are quite delicate, meaning that they can’t be used with metal utensils (we highly recommend Calphalon’s nylon utensils instead) and they need to be hand-washed. Depending on the quality of the cookware, the nonstick surface may begin to break down within a couple of years, or even a few months, depending on how regularly you use them and how careful you are with your cookware.

 

Badly scratched nonstick cookware will not only lose its nonstick qualities but can actually become toxic due to PFOA or PTFE, making them unusable. While it’s possible to buy nonstick cookware without these chemicals, they still likely won’t be as durable as cast iron or stainless steel.

 

So, if you want durable cookware that you can use for many years and even pass down to future generations, nonstick induction cookware may not be the best choice for you.

 

Variety of sizes and number of pieces

Once you’ve decided what material you’re looking for in a cookware set, you’ll want to figure out which size set best suits your needs and lifestyle. This means you should consider not only the number of pieces in a given set but also how big each piece is.

 

To get the most bang for your buck, honestly estimate how much you cook on a regular basis and which types and sizes of cookware you’ll be using the most.

 

Weight

A lightweight pot or pan may be easier to handle, but when you’re working with an induction cooktop, lighter isn’t always better. You want your induction compatible cookware to be on the heavier side for two main reasons:

 

1) the sturdier and better balanced it is, the less likely it is to spin or wobble while cooking, which can cause your induction cooktop to turn itself off, and 2) heavier cookware is less likely to cause annoying humming or buzzing on your induction cooktop (more on that down below).

 

What’s that sound?

Excessive noise is one of the top complaints of induction cooktop users, but it can be avoided with the right cookware. Those bizarre sounds are caused by the flow of energy coursing through your cookware that makes it rattle and vibrate. The lighter a pot or pan is, the easier it is to rattle, and the more noise it will make. You can also reduce noise by lowering your heat setting and making sure that your cookware covers the entire element ring.

 

Lids

Properly fitted lids for your pots and pans are essential for efficient steaming, boiling, and other cooking methods, so you definitely want to make sure that your cookware set includes as many lids as possible.You’ll want to stick to either glass or stainless steel lids (some sets we’ll look at have both).

 

It’s a good idea to comb through reviews to see if customers have issues with a cookware set’s lids, such as rattling, shattering, excessively hot handles, or anything else that may make them inconvenient or impractical to use.

 

Handles

The quality of a cookware set’s handles can make or break your cooking experience, so it’s important that you take a close look at them before purchasing.

 

Handles that are too thin, heat up too quickly, or have sharp edges can be a (literal) pain to use, so take a minute or two to find out what other users have to say about a particular cookware set’s handles before committing to purchasing.

 

Flat bottom

When considering cookware for induction ranges, it’s also important to make sure that each piece’s bottom surface is completely flat and even. A curved, warped, or otherwise uneven pot or pan will not be able to activate the induction process.

 

Pay attention to reviews from users, as they’ll usually note if their cookware arrives in defective shape or is prone to warping.

 

Warranty and return policy

No matter how great a cookware set may seem online, there’s no guarantee that it’ll arrive to you in perfect condition or that it’ll be compatible with your particular induction cooktop.

 

That’s why it’s important to make sure that any set you buy comes with a reliable warranty that covers returns or refunds in the event that you’re not happy with your purchase.

What are the best pots and pans for an induction range?

Now that we’ve covered the basics and you know what to expect from quality induction cookware, let’s take a look at some of the best induction cookware on the market to help you find the set that’s best for you.

Circulon Symmetry Hard Anodized Nonstick 11-Piece Cookware Set

The 11-Piece Circulon Symmetry Hard Anodized Nonstick Cookware Set, available in black, chocolate, or merlot, includes three saucepans, two skillets, a stockpot, and a saute pan in a variety of sizes. These pots and pans live up to their nonstick claim, but be warned: even some of the product’s most satisfied users have reported that the nonstick coating started to wear out after about a year.

While this set is made of anodized aluminum, the bottom is stainless steel, making it a perfect match for most induction cooktops. Users love that these pots and pans heat evenly, but some have experienced that the pans are relatively slow to heat up and cool down, which can make it harder to gauge how long to cook your food.

For the most part, this nonstick set can hold up to metal utensils and your dishwasher, but you should use both of these with caution if you want your cookware to last as long as possible. Silicone coated handles stay cool and provide a comfortable grip, but they can’t handle oven temps higher than 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

If you find that this set wears out even with regular care, it comes with a warranty that will allow you to replace it for free.

WHAT WE LIKE:

✅ Easy-to-clean nonstick coating

✅ Dishwasher safe

✅ Comfortable silicone handles

✅ Even heating

✅ Great warranty

WHAT WE DISLIKE:

❌ Despite being easy to clean, the nonstick coating isn’t very long-lasting

❌ Not oven-safe over 400 degrees

❌ Pans take unusually long time to heat up

Duxtop SSIB-17 Professional 17 piece Stainless Steel Induction Cookware Set

The Duxtop 17-Piece Stainless Steel Induction Cookware Set is a sleek set with a professional look and some useful, extra pieces: a steam basket, pasta basket, and three utensils. What those 17 pieces don’t include, however, is lids for the fry pans, so you may need to purchase those separately if you’re considering this set.

Induction cooktop owners like that this stainless steel set is sturdy and that the pots and pans have a thick bottom for even heating. Be warned, though, that this set may not be compatible with all induction cooktops, as several customers reported extremely loud buzzing and humming when using this set with their particular models.

While this set is beautiful, it does require some patience and diligent maintenance. If you’re not prepared to regularly season your pots and pans to prevent sticking, you may be setting yourself up for frustration and buyer’s remorse down the road. You’ll also have to be careful not to use metal utensils with this set, as it is prone to scratching.

If you’re looking for the best stainless steel induction cookware out there, this might not be it.

WHAT WE LIKE:

✅ Beautiful, professional look

✅ Heats evenly on induction stove

✅ Comes with useful accessories

✅ Heavy, sturdy build

WHAT WE DISLIKE:

❌ Can be difficult to clean

❌ Requires regular seasoning to prevent sticking

❌ Scratches easily

❌ Doesn’t come with lids for fry pans

Cuisinart MCP-12N Multiclad Pro Stainless Steel 12-Piece Cookware Set

The elegant Cuisinart Multiclad Pro Stainless Steel 12-Piece Cookware Set combines induction-friendly stainless steel with an aluminum core for nearly unmatched heat conductivity. Its composition allows your food to cook more quickly and evenly with less heat than you’d normally use, while making it strong enough to stand up to oven temps of up to 550°F.

If you’re prone to spills when pouring soups, sauces, and other liquidy dishes, you’ll appreciate this set’s “drip-free” tapered rims. While many users are pleased with this sturdy and durable cookware, others found it heavy and cumbersome — definitely not for the weak-wristed or arthritic.

While some users did report that the pans warped, this issue can usually be avoided by protecting your cookware from temperature shock (because going from very hot to very cold very suddenly is very bad for any cookware…and most other things, really).

Some induction cooktop users have found that this set may not be as induction-ready as it claims to be, resulting in loud buzzing at high temperatures. Defective pans with slightly warped bottoms can make induction cooking impossible as well, since they don’t lie flat. You may or may not encounter these issues depending on your model of induction cooktop and the condition that your set arrives in, but either way, you should be covered by Cuisinart’s limited lifetime warranty.

All in all, this Cuisinart set is a solid choice for anyone looking for reliable stainless steel induction cookware without a four-figure price tag.

WHAT WE LIKE:

✅ Heats quickly and evenly

✅ Drip-free rims

✅ Sturdy and durable

✅ Oven-safe up to 550°F

WHAT WE DISLIKE:

❌ Too heavy for some users

❌ Not compatible with some induction cooktops

T-fal E938SA Professional Total Nonstick Oven Safe Thermo-Spot Heat Indicator 10-Piece Dishwasher Safe Cookware Set

The T-fal E938SA 10-Piece Nonstick Cookware Set is a practical and versatile nonstick set that’s free of toxic PTFE. Users love that these pieces heat evenly and retain heat well, making cooking faster and easier.

This is also one of the more user-friendly sets on the list, as it’s considerably lighter and has comfortable silicone-coated handles. Those same handles do have a drawback, though — they can’t handle very high temperatures in the oven (it’s unclear whether the maximum temp is 350 or 400°F, but either way, you’re not going to be broiling anything in this cookware).

Customers also find this set easy to clean and like the convenient thermo-spot technology that lets you know when the cookware is at an ideal temperature. While this cookware is labeled as dishwasher safe, you’ll probably want to stick to washing the pots and pans by hand, as abrasive dishwasher detergents will wear out most nonstick coatings pretty quickly.

While there are a lot of benefits to owning the T-fal E938SA cookware set, some users have found that it’s not all it’s advertised to be. One of the top complaints is that it is easily scratched by metal utensils (we suggest you stick with utensils like the Calphalon nylon set mentioned above) even though it’s described as “scratch-resistant.”

There are mixed reports from induction cooktop users as well, with some finding that certain pieces simply don’t work for induction cooking.

WHAT WE LIKE:

✅ Heats evenly

✅ Retains heat well

✅ Easy to clean

✅ Comfortable handles

✅ Light, but not too light

✅ PTFE-free

✅ Convenient thermo-spot heat indicator

WHAT WE DISLIKE:

❌ Nonstick coating isn’t very durable

❌ Easily scratched by metal utensils

❌ Incompatible with some induction cooktops

❌ Can’t handle high oven temps

T-fal Stainless Steel with Copper Bottom Cookware Set, Pots and Pans Set, 13 Piece

The T-fal 13-Piece Copper Bottom Stainless Steel Cookware Set combines the best features of stainless steel and copper — durability and unrivaled heat conduction. The pots and pans do not have a solid copper bottom, as the name might suggest, but an inlay of copper strips on a stainless steel bottom, making them perfectly compatible with most induction cooktops.

This set is beautiful, yet durable and efficient. Because it’s free of glass and plastic, it can handle oven temps of up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. It also heats quickly and distributes heat evenly. Users report that the set is fairly easy to clean and that it can be nonstick with proper seasoning.

Before committing to this set, though, be advised that just about anything can void the warranty, including scratches (which users report it’s prone to) and using higher than medium cooking temps. Several users have claimed that the handles get dangerously hot at virtually any cooking temperature, too. Another common complaint is the thoughtless placement of stickers on the copper bottom that can actually peel away the copper when they’re removed.

This is a great budget stainless steel set for induction cooktops, but it’s not without its limitations.

WHAT WE LIKE:

✅ Aesthetically pleasing

✅ Durable, sturdy

✅ Oven-safe up to 500°F

✅ Nonstick (with proper seasoning)

✅ Heats quickly, evenly

✅ Easy to clean

WHAT WE DISLIKE:

❌ Extremely limited warranty

❌ Scratches easily

❌ Handles get too hot

❌ Removing stickers can damage cookware

Circulon Premier Professional 13-piece Hard-anodized Cookware Set

The Circulon Premier Professional 13-Piece Hard-Anodized Cookware Set stands out as a top-notch nonstick induction cookware set. Its stainless steel bottom makes it a great choice for most induction cooktops, while its nonstick interior ensures a fast, easy clean-up for the busiest of home cooks.

Users like that this set is lightweight, yet has a thick, solid bottom for even heating. The handles stay cool and comfortable, and the lids have unique pour spouts, allowing you to easily strain out liquids without removing the lids.

Like any nonstick set, you do need to exercise caution when using metal utensils, as some users have shared that metal will easily scratch the interior. While the thick base on these pots and pans does ensure even heating, it also makes this cookware slower to heat up.

Some pieces in this set may be prone to warping, so it’s best to avoid excessively high temperatures, temperature shock, or running them through the dishwasher to keep them in the best shape possible.

WHAT WE LIKE:

✅ Lightweight, yet sturdy

✅ Handles stay cool

✅ Easy to clean

✅ Heats evenly

✅ Great for most induction cooktops

✅ Convenient pour spouts in lids

WHAT WE DISLIKE:

❌ Scratches easily

❌ Prone to warping

❌ Heats up slowly

Tramontina 80116/249DS Gourmet Stainless Steel Induction-Ready Tri-Ply Clad 12-Piece Cookware Set

If you’re looking for reliable, high-quality cookware, the Tramontina Stainless Steel Induction-Ready Tri-Ply Clad 12-Piece Cookware Set may be the right match for you. Its aluminum core allows fast and even heating while its outer layers of stainless steel make it a great fit for most induction stoves.

This set includes three saucepans, a stock pot, a saute pan, and two frying pans, all of which include stainless steel lids (except for the frying pans). The mirror-finish on these pieces makes them an attractive addition to any kitchen, plus they’re dishwasher-safe and oven-safe up to 500°F.

Users find that this set is easy to clean and that it has excellent heat retention and distribution. Its handles stay cool and are comfortable to grip. An added bonus is that this set comes with a lifetime warranty.

The biggest gripe that customers have about this set is that it’s advertised as being made in Brazil, but it’s actually made in China. While this does raise some concerns about the brand’s integrity, it doesn’t necessarily mean that this product is inferior or unsafe to use. Some people take issue with buying items made in China for social, political and/or environmental reasons, but there’s no right or wrong answer in this case.

Personal preferences for a product’s country of origin aside, this is a great stainless steel cookware set for your induction stove.

WHAT WE LIKE:

✅ Dishwasher-safe

✅ Oven-safe up to 500°F

✅ Beautiful mirror finish

✅ Easy to clean

✅ Retains and distributes heat well

✅ Handles stay cool and comfortable

✅ Lifetime warranty

WHAT WE DISLIKE:

❌ Brand isn’t transparent about where products are made

Vremi 8 Piece Ceramic Nonstick Cookware Set

The Vremi 8 Piece Ceramic Nonstick Cookware Set is far and away the most unique and, dare I say, cutest set on this list. It comes in three fun, vibrant colors for those who want cookware that makes a statement.

The ceramic interior of this set makes it naturally nonstick without the use of toxic chemicals, plus it heats evenly and cleans up easily. While a handful of users found that this set doesn’t work with their induction cooktop, many more were pleased with its compatibility. It appears that this is where this set’s pros end, however.

One of the most alarming drawbacks of the Vremi ceramic cookware set is that it is apparently not as oven-safe as it claims to be. A few users reported that, within minutes of putting their cookware in the oven, it emitted a horrible, chemical-like smell, and the handles were cracked.

Some customers have also found that the handles on this set get dangerously hot and have an exposed screw on their underside that has burned many an unsuspecting home cook. Those issues seem to occur mostly with gas stovetop users, but it’s still worth keeping them in mind. Less serious issues include lids that don’t fit quite right and a lack of size variety.

If you don’t plan on ever using your cookware in the oven or on a gas stove, you may not run into any problems; you’ll just have an eye-catching, conversation-starting set of cookware.

WHAT WE LIKE:

✅ Fun, unique look

✅ Chemical-free nonstick ceramic interior

✅ Heats evenly

✅ Easy to clean

WHAT WE DISLIKE:

❌ Not very oven-safe

❌ Ill-fitting lids

❌ Not much size variety

❌ Exposed screw on handles

All-Clad E785SC64 Ha1 Hard Anodized Nonstick Dishwasher Safe PFOA Free Cookware Set, 10-Piece

If you’re a fan of nonstick cookware, you might want to consider the All-Clad 10-Piece Hard Anodized Nonstick Cookware Set. Like any quality nonstick cookware set, it’s free of toxic PFOA and a breeze to clean. Customers rave about its unique “cauldron” shape, which helps to prevent splatter and makes pouring easier.

This set offers a great variety of sizes of cookware for meals large and small. The nonstick coating is supposed to be scratch-resistant, but a handful of users have commented that that was not the case for them, so you may want to avoid using metal utensils and abrasive cleaners just to be safe.

The pots and pans are technically oven-safe but, as many users have lamented, the lids are not. Some other features that may be undesirable are that the handles are unwieldy and can become uncomfortably hot very quickly, and the pans may be susceptible to warping.

WHAT WE LIKE:

✅ Easy to clean

✅ Oven-safe pots and pans

✅ Range of sizes

✅ PFOA-free

✅ Cauldron shape reduces spills

WHAT WE DISLIKE:

❌ Uncomfortable handles heat up quickly

❌ Pans may warp

❌ Lids are not oven-proof

Duxtop SSC-9PC 9 Piece Whole-Clad Tri-Ply Induction Cookware

If you want a simple, no frills induction cookware set that can do it all, the Duxtop Whole-Clad Tri-ply Stainless Steel 9-Piece Induction Cookware Set may be just what you’re looking for. This no-fuss set can be tossed in the dishwasher and handle oven temps of up to 550°F, lids and all.

Users like that the handles are extra long and comfortable to hold and remain relatively cool on the stovetop. Reviews from induction users are overwhelmingly positive — fast, even heating on portable cooktops and ranges alike.

Any stainless steel set will have a bit of a learning curve, but once you’ve learned to properly heat your pan and oil before adding food, you’ll find that this cookware is virtually nonstick. Plus, customers add, it’s super easy to clean, which is always a great bonus.

There isn’t much to critique about this set, but if you’re cooking for a large family, you may find that this set isn’t quite big enough.

WHAT WE LIKE:

✅ Affordable

✅ Durable and sturdy

✅ Can handle very high oven temps

✅ Dishwasher-safe

✅ Comfortable, extra long handles stay cool

✅ Nonstick (with proper use)

WHAT WE DISLIKE:

❌ May not be suitable for larger families

Le Creuset 14-piece Stainless Steel Cookware Set

No cookware review list could be complete without Le Creuset, and this 14-piece Stainless Steel Cookware Set from the famous French brand is a worthwhile inclusion. It includes two saucepans, a saute pan, casserole, stockpot, and two skillets, each with its own lid (a first on this list!).

Instead of Le Creuset’s signature, bold colors, this set has a high-polish stainless steel finish, which is supposedly resistant to rust and discoloration. The interior of each pot has measuring lines, making it easier to know exactly how much you’re cooking.

While this cookware boasts some great features, like stay-cool handles and “precision pour rims,” it’s difficult to gauge just how well these features work in real life due to the utter lack of online reviews for this particular set. While it seems like a safe bet that these pieces of the highest quality, there’s no guarantee, and with a Le Creuset price point, that may not be a risk you’ll be willing to take.

This is a beautiful cookware set that should work great on any induction cooktop due to its magnetic stainless steel exterior and aluminum core. If you prefer to invest in something tried and true (and reviewed), though, you may want to pass on this set.

WHAT WE LIKE:

✅ Rust- and stain-resistant

✅ Beautiful high-shine finish

✅ Lids for every pot and pan

✅ Ergonomic, stay-cool handles

✅ Laser-etched measure lines in pots

WHAT WE DISLIKE:

❌ Not affordable for most

Which induction cookware set comes out on top?

If you’re going to make us choose, we have to go with the Tramontina Tri-Ply 12-Piece Stainless Steel Cookware Set as the best induction cookware set of the bunch. This set’s aluminum core and magnetic stainless steel exterior guarantee fast, even heat distribution and superior heat retention.

It works like a nonstick set, but without the delicate nonstick coating or use of toxic chemicals — just be sure to season it properly. Users find that this set is sturdy, comfortable to handle, and easy to clean (you can even run it through the dishwasher in a pinch).

These pots and pans hold up well in the oven, too, handling temps of up to 500°F. An added bonus is this set’s polished, mirror-like finish, which adds a touch of beauty and sophistication to your kitchen. On top of all of these great features, this set also comes with a lifetime warranty, so you can rest assured that it’s here to stay.

The only major drawback that users seem to find with this particular set is that it’s inaccurately advertised as being made in Brazil, when it is in fact manufactured in China. If you are willing to overlook this detail, however, you’ll have a beautiful, durable induction ready cookware set that you can enjoy for many, many years to come.
