Pan slow on induction

stir_fryiAugust 10, 2012

I recently bought this pan.

http://circulon.dedicatedcookware.com/product/45-qt-extra-deep-all-purpose-pan-infinite-collection

I am used to pans heating up super fact on my induction stove -- this one heats up considerably slower.

Any reason why?

Makes me hesitate to buy any more from this line.

Either it has much greater mass than the reference pans or it doesn't have enough magnetizable material (magnetic susceptibility) to efficiently use the fields generated, or you are watching it. :)

I have some Circulon frying pans. They are aluminum with a steel/iron slab welded to the bottom. It takes longer for them to heat up than my AllClad (thermal mass and all).

I don't use them that much because they are noisier.

Fori is not pleased

I have a small Circulon Infinite non stick pan as my induction omelet pan. No problems with it at all, but it's a pretty small pan.

Just sayin' the whole line isn't bad--might have to do with the size and how much of it is inductable. Or somethin'.

I have 4 Circulon Infinite pans, bought at Macy's. They all work fine, are not slow to heat and not noisy.
