Dear Valued Home Depot Customer, We reached out to the MFG for more information and find their response below. "That is correct the induction burner can only be used with pots or pans that are magnetic. If the customer has the unit already. The way to test first before turning on the burner. If the pot or pan sticks then that particular pan would be able to be used with the induction cooker. I hope this answers your questions/concerns."
