Can I use my old non induction copper pots and pans on my induction cooktop? – you can now!

Description

Induction disc Top

The AppliancePro induction interface converter disc allows you to use non-induction cookware on an induction cooktop.

It simply transforms the induction element into a traditional radiant element!

New model now includes an easy grip soft touch handle that’s safe to touch and easier to move (and it’s dishwasher safe like the disc).

Pots, pans and cookware such as copper pots, cast iron, glass ceramic, Bessemer, Stainless Steel and aluminium can all be used on the induction interface disk. No need to throw out your old favourites just because you are upgrading to induction.

The disc accommodates any cookware up to 28cm diameter.

Can you use copper, glass, ceramic, cast iron, stainless steel, or aluminium pots on an induction cooktop? you can now! It’s simple to test whether cookware is induction ready or not; if a magnet sticks to the base of a pot then it is OK to use on an induction cooktop, if a magnet does not stick to the base – the induction interface disc is for you.

The disc will work with portable induction cookers however due to the low output of these units, heat up time will be a lot longer and some units may not heat the disc to the temperature required to boil water. We do not recommend using the disc on portable induction cookers.

Our FAQ section below covers a range of queries and instructions.

What cookware can I use on the disc?

Any cookware that has a base of copper, stainless steel, cast iron, aluminium, glass or ceramic can be used.

 

Will it heat as fast as induction?

No! induction is a very fast way to heat, the disc transforms your induction element into a traditional radiant element. The disc heats up and radiates the heat to the vessel. The heat up time purely depends on the conductivity of the cookware placed on it, for example, a copper pan will be quicker than an aluminium one.

 

Any important instructions for use?

Yes! a couple of things are important:

The disc should never be used on a maximum, boost or high heat setting, a maximum of 1/2 power is sufficient for the disc to reach it’s maximum temperature, settings of more than this can cause the disc to overheat and warp, this can be dangerous and is not covered by our warranty. As you are getting used to using the disc, try a low setting first then move up as you get a feel for the heat transfer.

Never use the disc without a pan placed on top. Remove disc and pan when cooking is completed, be careful as the disc will become very hot during use and remain hot for some time, take care.

Allow disc to cool down naturally, sudden cooling, for example, placing in cold water can cause damage to the disc.

The disc will discolour & tarnish over time, this is normal and does not affect performance. The disc can be washed in a dishwasher however unless there are spilled foods cleaning the disc is not necessary.

Always dry disc before use, do not use if wet.

Do not allow disc or cookware to overheat or boil dry. Should this occur, immediately stop heat, if smoking, ventilate area, only remove disc & pan after allowing it to cool.

Only use cookware with a flat base.

Do not slide, always lift the disc on & off the surface to avoid damage to the cooktop surface.

Do not use the disc to cook on or for cutting or storing food.

Heat transfer from the disc is more gradual than direct to a pan, as such, allow extra time for foods to be cooked. The type of pot will have an influence on heat transfer, for example aluminium will be a lot slower than copper.

Some induction cooktops have a surface temperature cut-off feature. Should this happen, remove the disc, allow the surface to cool, lower the heat setting and adjust cooking time accordingly.

Will the induction disc discolour?

It will, stainless steel material is a bit misleading, it won’t rust but will discolour after use, the good news is that it doesn’t effect the performance in any way, just doesn’t have the showroom shine it had when it was new.

 

Can you use it on a portable induction cooktop? It’s not recommended as the very low wattage of these units produces extremely long heat up times for the disc, in cases, it may not reach the temperature required to boil water.

What pots can I use on it? Any non-induction cookware, from old cast iron, aluminium, copper, glass & ceramic. If you can use it on a normal radiant element you can use it on the induction disc.  Just like any radiant cooktop different materials will take longer to heat up than others.

Heat transfer is effected by:

The texture of the base (eg: rippled will take longer than smooth)

The material the pot is made from (eg: copper is quicker than aluminium)

The thickness of the base (usually thicker takes longer)

The temperature of the contents of the pot

Can I use my cooktops boost setting? No!! Never! A maximum of 1/2 power will get the disc to it’s maximum heat, any more is a waste and can cause harm the disc (see below)

What heat setting should I use with the discThe disc should never be used on a maximum, boost or high heat setting, a maximum of 1/2 power is sufficient for the disc to reach it’s maximum temperature, settings of more than this can cause the disc to overheat and warp, this can be dangerous and is not covered by our warranty. As you are getting used to using the disc, try a low setting first then move up as you get a feel for the heat transfer
