Stainless steel is not magnetic, so often they will not work with induction hobs, you should shop with a magnet, if a magnet will not stick to base reject it. We have a lovely stainless steel pressure cooker sitting in garage as will not work with our induction hob.
Actually replaced with a stand alone pressure cooker, It has far more options than one which works on main cooker, with timers and sensors built in.
I know many do not have an induction hob yet, but they are now the best type, although touch controls are useless and many are spoilt because manufacturers have included touch controls. However they are faster than gas, safer than gas, as controllable as gas as long as not fitted with touch controls, and they heat food not kitchen, so use less power and more user friendly. Plus extra features like auto boil then simmer and auto safety shut down. So likely in the future most house holds will move over to induction, so you don't want to have to put cookware in the bin, so make sure it has magnetic base.
I'm planning to get a new set of cookware as a token for my friend. I'm torn between stainless steel or iron cookware. Anybody here could give me suggestion?
There are many reasons why you should opt for stainless steel. The first and foremost reason being that Stainless Steel Pans Are Easier to Clean and Care For. Secondly, you’ll Only Taste Your Food in a Stainless Steel Pan High acid foods can even break down the seasoning of an improperly seasoned cast iron pan. That means, if you haven’t spent a few good years frying bacon in your pan or if you’re not keeping up with seasoning it regularly, you might notice a weird taste when you cook things like tomato or wine sauces in your cast iron. Another reason being Stainless Steel Pans Conduct Heat Better. Contrary to popular belief stainless steel is actually a better conductor of heat than cast iron cookware. Fourthly, Stainless Steel Pans Are Lighter Weight. And last but not the least, Stainless Steel Pans Are Sleek AF
