  2. It doesn’t. It can if you want to buy the super froufrou brands, but that is equally true of non-induction capable cookware. No need to waste your money on such things. There is plenty of inexpensive induction capable cookware available that will perform very well and last forever. I have some commercial grade stainless steel pans that I bought 20 years ago and have used hundreds of times since on both induction and non-induction ranges and they are as good as the day I bought them. See link. If you are in the US go to the nearest TJ Maxx and look at what they have — you will find many induction ready pots and pans for $20–40 each that are perfectly fine and will serve you well. If the item is aluminum, look for numerous small disks embedded in the bottom — those are what make them work on induction.
    In fact, if you want non-stick pans, it’s a very bad idea to buy expensive ones, because the non-stick always wears out after a while and the pan must be replaced.

  3. They are not all expensive. The pans I use on my induction burners are #1 -35 or so year old KitchenAid set of Fry pan, 8 qt, 4 qt, 2 qt & 1 qt sauce pans About $100 for the set),#2 – 2 carbon steel fry pans (about $60 recently), three Ikea pans (5 liter, 3 liter (double boiler, steamer, fryer), 12 inch fry pan all there less than $100 about 20 years ago. I also use a Teflon non-stick fry pan which lasts about 5 years and costs about $35. I have a cast iron fry pan which I use rarely because it is heavy and I have arthritis in my hands. If you gotta have ‘AllClad’ or other highly advertised brands you will of course pay much more but not because they are “induction appropriate”.
