This Gal was selling Induction Cooktops, as shown above, and explaining how only Pots to which Magnets stick were useful. To overcome this 'shortcoming', she also sold a Metal Disc [ferrous] that one could use with non-ferrous Pans. The drawback to this Disc, she explained to a Customer, was 'that it got really hot' [the point of it; to heat up and transfer that heat to non-ferrous Cookware]. The 'drawback' to this Disc Accessory just really hit my Funny Bone somehow.
But, it did illuminate that there's an Accessory out there - easily homemade, I'm sure - that allows using non-Ferrous Cookware on Induction Cooktops.
I see your point but what the heck is up with induction stove tops that don't accommodate the most typical stainless or aluminum skillet? Granted I have plenty of cast iron cookware but I don't always choose to take it along. What good is an induction stove top if I can't use light weight cookware I prefer to take in a lightweigh camp trailer?
