      Q:What cookware is recommended?
      by|Jul 24, 2022
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hey there - we're happy to tell you more about the correct cookware for this induction cooktop! The following are materials that induction cookware should be made of: *Magnetic stainless steel *Enameled steel (Painted or enamel bottom cookware is not recommended) *Cast iron (works well but may scratch the glass unless it is porcelain coated) *A combination of these materials. -- For the best performance, please use a pan that matches the element size. Your pans should have a flat bottom and be at least 5 inches across the bottom. Cookware larger than the element ring may be used; however, heat will only be created above the burner. -- The following are materials that should not be used with induction: *Aluminum or aluminum clad *Copper or copper clad *Aluminum foil *Glass/ceramic *Some stainless steel products (not magnetic). Hope you found this helpful. Have a great week. - Pablo@Cafe

          Looks great, works well, easy 2 use, weird install
          The cooktop looks great. Its controls are intuitive, responsive, and easy to use. The only strange behavior we have seen so far is when it detected a problem with a small pot. Maybe it was because we poured boiling water into the pot before turning it on. It would turn itself off after a few seconds. This is a perfect case for using the app to provide more information, but there was nothing there. Big miss. Using the same pot with cold water has worked fine. The other problem is the installation. It comes with a limited amount of thick tape, so after installation, there's this huge gap that 1. will collect crumbs and dirt underneath, and 2. will make the border much more vulnerable to chipping. The installers said this is what was provided in the package, so this needs to be fixed by GE/Cafe. There should be thin tape that attaches cleanly to the edge, so the cooktop can rest against the countertop all around the edge.

            The induction cooktop has completely surprised us. We didn’t know much about it in the beginning, but have really grown to love it. Amazing.

              I purchased this cooktop about three years ago, after online research. I use predominantly cast iron and All-Clad cookware and was excited about switching to induction from gas. I love the streamlined appearance and the ease of cleaning. The range of features are also quite nice. However, from the beginning it has been a struggle to cook evenly when using skillets and other low pans. The food cooks much faster in the center than at the outside edges, regardless of the temperature at which it is set. I match the bottom of my cookware to the correct cooking element. Eggs, pancakes, pan-seared steaks, etc. all cook unevenly, and I must carefully watch and rotate items in a pan for more consistent cooking. This alone prevents me from recommending this product. It is disappointing that the beveled edges are prone to cracking (see photo), but not entirely unexpected.

              Hello there! We appreciate you for taking the time to provide feedback. We are so sorry to hear that your induction cooktop is experiencing issues with cooking evenly.

                Enjoy cooking on this, its been great. Only been installed for 4 months and the corners of the cooktop have chipped since it is made of glass. I am not hard on my appliances at all, was really disappointed on how there is no trim kit for around the glass cooktop. Also it is very touchy to water, etc. if boiling water and it splashes on the cook top, it can cause it to turn off, happens more than id like it to.
                Response from Café Apr 19, 2023
                Hello there. It is very nice to hear that you can enjoy making a meal on your new cooktop. When it comes to induction cooking, certain things can be different to a normal cooktop such as boiling water and spillovers. We're happy to provide some further details. First we would like to thank you for sharing your experience, this is reviewed by our product teams so that we can learn where improvements can be made in the future. Your induction cooktop will turn off when spill happen because at high and medium high settings, boil overs can cause smoking, and greasy spillovers may cause fire. Your safety is our first priority. We do see that you have recently spoken with one of our agents regarding the chip in your cooktop. Please feel welcome to reach back out if you have any further questions. Thank you for making Café Appliances a part of your home. -Haley@Café

                      Beautiful and functional
                      We installed this cooktop about 2 months ago when we remodeled our kitchen. I'd never had an induction cooktop before. My husband and I both enjoy cooking on it and it boils water in a flash.

                        User friendly, responsive, easy to clean!
                        I’ve been using The Cafe induction cooktop for 2 months. It has been a fantastic upgrade from my previous electric cooktop, which was easy to clean, but took a while to heat up & lower temperature. The Cafe induction temperature control is very responsive in heating & cooling with the touch on the digital dial, & is a breeze to clean. I purchased a Cuisine-art pro s/s pot set. I also use my cast iron pots (with paper towel underneath), & a cast iron griddle which spans over the bridging elements. Cast iron takes longer to heat but retains its heat well so I didn’t notice any cool spots. Using Paper towel is also great for frying, & makes cleaning really easy. I seldom need the highest settings unless I’m boiling water. My husband was skeptical changing to induction, but enjoys cooking on it too. The timer is a nice bonus.
