What are the cooking heat source compatible with Copper Pans?
Copper Pans can be used on gas stoves. These can also be used on ceramic and glass cooktops. However, copper pans are not induction compatible which means that they will not work on induction cooktops.
Are Copper Pans Induction Safe?
No, copper pans are not induction safe. For cookware to work on an introduction, it is necessary that it should have a magnetic bottom that could conduct the heat produced by electromagnetic waves. The copper pans do not have a magnetic base; hence they will not work on induction cooktops.
Disadvantages of cooking in Copper Pan with Induction stove-top.
Cookware that has a flat magnetic bottom works on an induction cooktop. To check whether your pan is induction compatible or not you can use a magnet. If the magnet sticks at the bottom of the pan, then the pan will work on an induction cooktop; otherwise it will not. Copper pans do not have magnetic bases, hence they cannot conduct the electromagnetic waves radiated by the cooktop and will not heat. Using them on induction cooktop will damage your cooktop.
