If you’ve invested in an induction cooktop, making sure you’re using the proper cookware is very important. In some cases, this means upgrading your cookware. If you’re looking for the best cookware to use with your induction cooktop, regardless of your budget, you’ve come to the right place.

What is the best cookware to use with induction cooktops? For an induction cooktop, I recommend cookware sets made of durable materials such as ceramic, stainless steel, and copper with nonstick properties. Cuisinart, T-Fal, and Blue Diamond Cookware produce cookware sets for induction cooking that are in multiple price ranges.

Ahead, I’ll present a full list of my recommendations so you can begin making the most of your induction cooktop!


The 10 Best Cookware Sets to Use with Induction Cooktops

1. Cuisinart MultiClad Pro Triple-Ply 12-Piece Cookware Set

Starting the list is a 12-piece induction-friendly cookware set from CuisinartOpens in a new tab..

As part of Cuisinart’s MultiClad Pro line, this deluxe cookware is made of hardy 18/10 stainless steel that can heat up to 550 degrees Fahrenheit safely. 

The MultiClad construction promises three layers of protection when cooking, including a pure aluminum core, an interior built from heavy-duty stainless steel, and then the stainless steel exterior. 

The pieces all have a mirror-polished, brushed finish for an undeniable appeal!

So what’s in the cookware set? Here’s what you get:

  • An eight-quart covered stockpot (recommended for soups and sautés)
  • A 3.5-quart sauté pan with a cover (recommended for cooking or braising)
  • An eight-inch open skillet
  • A 10-inch open skillet 
  • A 1.5-quart saucepan with a lid
  • A three-quart saucepan with a lid 

Any of the pieces in this set can go right from your induction cooktop to the dishwasher, which is part of what I love about the Cuisinart set.

2. Vremi Eight-Piece Ceramic Nonstick Cookware Set 

Do you like a pop of color in your kitchen? So do I!

The problem is that finding colorful, quality cookware is like digging up a needle in a haystack, let alone colorful cookware for induction cooktops.

Well, the search is finally over, as the Vremi ceramic nonstick cookware setOpens in a new tab. is just what you’ve always longed for.

The banana-yellow color of all eight pieces in the set is cheery and sure to put a smile on your face each time you turn on your induction cooktop! You can also order the pieces in blue.

Beyond the nonstick ceramic outer, the core of this cookware set is die-cast, non-toxic aluminum for durability and dependability. 

The ceramic promises even heat distribution and fast heating as well. 

Underneath each piece of cookware in the set is a spiral bottom designed for compatibility with halogen, electric, or gas induction stovetops. 

Wood-toned handles make for convenient and comfortable handling. 

The included lids for each piece purposefully allow a tiny gap between the cookware and the lid so steam can exit and the cookware never overheats.

Vremi even designed each piece in the set to fit into one another in a stack so your new induction cooktop set doesn’t take up too much room in your kitchen cabinet.

I’m sure you’re wondering, what do you get in the set? Here’s what’s included:

  • Two angled frying pan skillets 
  • One casserole pot with a lid

Capable of withstanding oven heat up to 500 degrees, All-Clad’s set is washable in two ways. You can wash each piece by hand, or you can put them in the dishwasher when you’re done cooking.

I like that versatility! I should note that All-Clad does recommend hand-washing over dishwashing to maintain the nonstick coating. 

Each piece includes a lid made of tempered glass as well as a stainless steel riveted handle that stays steady when you grip your pot or pan with your favorite set of potholders.

Infused with Thermo-Spot technology, an indicator on each pot or pan is designed to tell you when your cookware is adequately preheated so you’re ready to rock and roll. 

In conjunction with the anti-warping base for heat distribution and the non-stick coating, you’ve got a verifiable triple threat in this T-Fal set.

Induction cooking doesn’t ever have to be boring when you have an attractive set like the Circulon Symmetry cookware setOpens in a new tab. in your kitchen!

Each nonstick piece has a coating on both the exterior and interior, which is not something you come across that often. 

Of course, the nonstick coating is completely PFOA-free for your peace of mind. 

Circulon promises 15 times the longevity compared to standard nonstick surfaces with their Symmetry cookware set. 

Each piece is made of hard-anodized metal and features a three-layered stainless steel base that’s made for induction cooking. 

The handles are stainless steel as well and then covered in a layer of silicone.

All pieces in the set can withstand temperatures over 400 degrees. 

Circulon does recommend starting with low heat when preheating the pieces in this cookware set and then cooking consistently over low-medium heat to maintain the nonstick finish.

Stainless steel never goes out of style, so investing in an induction-friendly cooking set in this material is always a wise choice.

To that end, I recommend the Anolon Nouvelle stainless steel setOpens in a new tab., which includes 11 pieces in all.

Comprised of up to five layers of metal, including a copper core, Anolon designed each piece in the set for excellent performance and heat control. 

The copper core also makes this cookware set compatible with induction cooktops, as does the magnetized stainless steel cap.

Then there’s the outer layer of stainless steel, which is polished to the point where you can practically see your reflection in it!

Capable of handling temperatures up to 500 degrees, this stainless steel set is also safe to run through the dishwasher after you finish enjoying your latest culinary masterpiece.

The stainless steel clad construction is triple-ply. A layer of magnetic stainless steel makes this set induction-friendly.

The second layer is an aluminum core, and then the outer layer is tough 18/10 stainless steel.

That’s the same material used to make each precision-fit lid so no heat exits when you turn on your induction cooktop. 

All the handles are riveted and are too made of stainless steel to add to the seamless look of each piece in the cookware set.

I first fell in love with all things kitchen when I was growing up and working alongside my father in Florida at our family's appliance service and installation company. Many years later, and thousands of miles away from family I was enjoying a wonderful experience at a culinary school in Pennsylvania. That’s when I realized that along with my passion for holidays and cooking, I was still just as interested in the appliances, kitchenware, and cookware that I grew up around.
