We recently gave a run down of the best Nuwave cookware pans because Nuwave are so popular right now, but there are many other great brands available. So in this post we are going to look at some the best pan sets for induction cooktops.
- 1. T-fal C515SC Professional Total Nonstick Thermo-Spot Heat Indicator Induction Base Cookware Set, 12-Piece, Black
- 2. Duxtop SSC-9PC 9 Piece Whole-Clad Tri-Ply Induction Cookware, Stainless Steel
- 3. CONCORD 3 Piece Ceramic Non Stick Fry Pan Set
- 4. Chef’s Star Professional Grade Stainless Steel 17 Piece Pots & Pans Set

1. T-fal C515SC Professional Total Nonstick Thermo-Spot Heat Indicator Induction Base Cookware Set, 12-Piece, Black
This set is brilliant. It’s from T-fal so you will probably already know it’s great quality. The big brands don’t mess around when it comes to workmanship and material quality and because they are such a huge company and sell so much stuff their products don’t cost the earth. This incredible 12 piece set is a bargain.
You get everything you could possibly need from cookware set. They even give you some utensils and these are the ones you should use as well as they won’t damage the non stick surface your pans like metal utensils. This set actually has a special non stick coating which is resistant to metal utensils but we still advise using softer materials to prolong its lifespan.
So what’s so great about these pans?
- Thermo Spot – The pans all come with the T-fal thermo spot which tells you when your pan is preheated and is ready for sealing in the flavour of your food.
- Stainless steel base for the best induction experience.
- Stay cool silicone handles that are securely riveted onto the pan
- Dishwasher safe
- Non Stick
- Vented glass lids
- Comes with utensils!
This set includes 8-inch and 10.25-inch fry pans, 1-quart and 3-quart sauce pans, 5-quart stock pots, one egg wonder pan, a stainless steel steamer insert and 2 nylon tools as seen in the picture. It also comes in a 10 piece set but the 12 piece is much better value in our opinion.See latest reviews and price on Amazon

5. NuWave Cookware Set, Silver, 7 Piece
We couldn’t let this list go by without giving Nuwave another mention. As we said at the start of the post we have done a whole page dedicated to the best Nuwave cookware but how could we not include this set again!
This is a great looking set with the stainless steel mirror exterior and the copper style finish on the inside. Despite these looks these pans are made from aluminium which means they are very strong but light weight.
The set includes 10.5 Inches fry pan, 2-qt sauce pan with lid, 1.5-Qt sauce pan with lid, and a 5.5-Qt stock pot with lid. Pretty much covering you for all your cooking needs. We think this little set would make an ideal gift for someone or as a gift to yourself.
All the best features of induction cooking here, really fast even cooking. Of course you can use these pans on other cooktop types as well if you wish.
As people are becomign more and more concious about what chemicals are used in their cookware, Nuwave have made these PTFE and PFOA free so there is no worry about transference from these.
Nuwave pans also come with an amazing non stick surface that we think is among the best there is. This set has been a very big seller which should tell you how good it is.See latest reviews and price on Amazon
