If you are in the market for induction friendly cookware, these three stainless-steel sets are all solid options. They are also compatible with conventional stoves and are dishwasher and oven safe.
The Cuisinart Multi-Clad Pro Stainless Steel 12-pc Cookware Set is a great value and a wise long-term investment. This high quality, sturdy set includes a steamer insert. It does not however have a lid for the skillet (one can be purchased from a third-party). This is a small inconvenience given the durability and versatility of this cookware set.
The Duxtop Whole-Clad Tri-Ply Stainless Steel 10-pc Cookware Set includes everything you need to prepare delicious meals. It is constructed with three layers; two magnetic stainless steel with thick aluminum core in between. Secura (manufacturer of Duxtop and Secura brands) states on its website that Whole-Clad is a bonding technology. They assert this technology extends this product’s lifetime dramatically compared to cookware that has encapsulated base construction. As with the previously discussed Cuisinart collection, a lid for the skillet is not included.
The Magma Nesting Cookware is optimal for RV and boat owners as well as those who have limited kitchen storage space. Although it is marketed toward these consumer groups, it certainly can be used daily in a full-sized kitchen. It is durable and composed of a high grade of stainless steel. In addition, the heat is transferred quickly and distributed evenly. To prevent scratching, one only need to put a barrier such as shelf liner or a towel between the pots and between the pots and lids.
It is worth noting that it will take a little bit of practice to master cooking with uncoated stainless steel if you have only prepared food with non-stick pots and pans.
