Using electric cooking plate and metal pans


Hello all.  

My husband and I just joined this group and looking forward to gaining knowledge from others.  I have learned from friends that some of them use an electric cooking plate to not use as much propane.  If you use this, which cooking plate do you recommend?  Also, which metal pots do you recommend also?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Induction is the way to go, the least electric usage and the cooktop does not get hot. NuWave and others make these, you can get two NuWave's mail order for just over $100. All your pans need to be induction ready, which means a magnet will stick to the bottom. Technomadia and others use only induction.

We actually do not have induction, but have made sure our cookware is induction ready. Our problem is all of our kitchen plugs are on the 30AMP inverter circuit, along with the residential fridge, microwave, Breville Smartoven, coffee pot, TV and computers. Since we often use a combination of cooktop, microwave and Smartoven to cook meals, our kitchen is not wired to support using induction instead of propane. For many others this is not a problem.

We use a Nu-Wave induction countertop burner. Any pan that a magnet will stick to the bottom can be used on the induction plate.

We also use one at home.

Ours were purchased from QVC.com

They have temperature settings that are very accurate plus other features that help with cooking.

Not only do they have to be metal but they need to be magnetic.

 Just the bottom needs to be magnetic, since there are aluminum and copper pans that have bottoms that have iron in them and are magnetic.  For instance, Copper Chef pans are induction ready and well loved.

I have a Nuwave induction single burner in our Montana and I have pans from home that work fine (Allclad) but I also purchased a few of Nuwave's skillets. I love them. They clean up so quickly and nothing sticks. Between this and my Instant Pot I only use the propane burners for poached eggs as that pan is not magnetic. I highly recommend the induction. We cook a lot and I am definitely considering getting another.

Unless we’re talking an induction range and non-sandwich bottomed stainless cookware. That said: cast/forged iron and non-stick cookware like T-fal Ultimate Hard-Anodized can work beautifully as do many professional cooks.
