Induction cooking relies on the iron in the cookware to generate heat. If the bottom of your cookware sticks to a fridge magnet, it will work on an induction burner. This often includes most stainless-steel cookware, cast iron cookware, enameled cast iron cookware and some nonstick cookware.
Cookware made from aluminum, copper or glass are most likely not compatible. However, you can add an induction converter disk placed between your cookware and the induction burner. It will heat up your cookware like a traditional electrical coil burner.
