Cook with Stainless Steel Cookware on Induction Stovetops

The best stainless steel cookware sets are one of the most popular types of cooking vessels used in kitchens around the world. Its durability, non-reactivity, and ability to retain heat make it a favorite among home cooks and professional chefs alike. However, when it comes to cooking on an induction stovetop, stainless steel cookware can present a few challenges. In this blog, we will discuss how to cook with the best stainless steel cookware on induction stovetops so you can get the most out of your cookware.

First, it's important to understand how induction stovetops work. Unlike traditional stovetops, which use a flame or heating element to heat the cookware, induction stovetops use an electromagnetic field to create heat directly in the induction cookware itself. This means that only cookware that is made of magnetic materials, such as cast iron and stainless steel, will work on an induction stovetop.stainless steel triply kadai on induction cooktop
Most stainless steel cookware is made from grades containing iron, which allows it to interact with the magnetic field of the induction cooktop. This creates the heat necessary for cooking.

Now that you understand the basics of induction cooking let's dive into cooking with stainless steel cookware on an induction stovetop.

1. Choose the Right Cookware

As mentioned earlier, only cookware made of magnetic materials will work on an induction stovetop. When it comes to the best tri-ply stainless steel cookware in India, not all pots and pans are created equal. Look for cookware that is labeled as "induction-compatible" or "magnetic stainless steel." Ensure that the cookware has a magnetic base made from ferritic stainless steel or a tri-ply construction like Avias. You can also test the cookware with a magnet at home to see if it attracts. This means that the cookware is made with a layer of magnetic material that will allow it to work on an induction stovetop.

2. Preheat the CookwarePreheating stainless steel cookware
When cooking with stainless steel cookware on an induction stovetop, it's important to preheat the cookware before adding any food. This will help prevent food from sticking to the bottom of the pan and ensure even cooking. To preheat the cookware, simply turn the heat to the desired temperature and let the cookware heat up to the smoke point for a few minutes before adding any ingredients. Start with lower heat settings and adjust as needed.

3. Use the Right Amount of Oillimited Oil use in the stainless steel pan
Stainless steel cookware is non-stick, but it still requires a bit of oil to prevent food from sticking. When cooking on an induction stovetop, it's essential to use the right amount of oil. Too little oil can cause food to stick, while too much oil can cause smoke and splattering. A good rule of thumb is to use just enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan lightly.
Avias World's Triply cookware distributes heat evenly, which is why the consumption of oil is lower in such cookware.

4. Monitor the Heat

Induction stovetops can heat up quickly, so it's important to monitor the heat when cooking with stainless steel cookware. Keep an eye on the temperature dial and adjust the heat as needed to prevent food from burning or boiling over. Triply cookware will quickly heat up, so always watch over the temperature level.

5. Use a flat-bottomed panThe best quality stainless steel triply cookware from Avias works on all stovetops
Stainless steel cookware with a flat bottom works best on induction stovetops. This ensures even heat distribution and allows the cookware to make full contact with the surface of the stovetop. Avoid using warped or rounded-bottomed pans, as they may not work well with induction stovetops. Tri-ply cookware, on the other hand, will work well on any induction cooktop!

6. Use a lid

Using a lid on your stainless steel cookware can help retain moisture and heat, which can result in more even cooking. Make sure the lid is properly fitted to the pan to avoid steam escaping. Avias triply kadai and saucepan will come with lids that perfectly fit with the frypan, too!

In conclusion, cooking with stainless steel on an induction stovetop can take some getting used to, but with a few tips and tricks, you'll be cooking like a pro in no time. Stainless steel cookware is a popular and compatible choice for induction stovetops. Its durability, ease of cleaning, and versatility make it a valuable addition to any kitchen.
