Correct sizing is equally vital. Since your cooktop features burners of varying sizes, choose cookware that corresponds to the burner you intend to use. Some elements can accommodate a range of sizes within their indicated minimum and maximum limits.

Induction cooktops have an additional requirement: the cookware must possess a magnetic base. This can be tested using any magnet. The magnetic portion of the base should align with the size of the heating element being used.

Note: Avoid sliding pots across electric or induction cooktops. Always lift and place them. While some cookware materials are less abrasive than others, all of them can potentially damage or stain the ceramic cooktop surface when slid across it.


Aluminum is non-magnetic and heats up rapidly. Some foods can cause darkening of aluminum (anodized aluminum cookware resists staining & pitting). Sliding aluminum cookware across ceramic surfaces may leave marks.

Cast Iron

Cast iron is magnetic, but it can be harmful to ceramic cooktops when slid across the surface. It heats slowly but retains heat effectively, allowing prolonged cooking at a consistent temperature.

Copper is non-magnetic and heats quickly, but it is prone to discoloration. Sliding copper cookware across ceramic surfaces may leave marks.

Magnetism and performance vary based on the base material. Porcelain enamel coatings should be smooth to prevent scratching ceramic cooktops.

Glass or Ceramic

Glass or ceramic materials are non-magnetic and have slow heating capabilities. They are not recommended for ceramic cooktop surfaces due to their potential to scratch the glass.

Note: Only use glass cookware specified for range top cooking or oven use.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is typically magnetic (manufacturers typically label if suitable for induction cooking). It heats slowly and offers uneven cooking but stands out for its durability, easy cleaning, and resistance to staining.
