Induction stoves heat cookware through magnetic induction rather than thermal conduction or electrical heating. Induction stoves use copper coils to produce magnetic fields, and these magnetic fields only heat ferromagnetic items. Swiss Diamond developed the induction series to cater towards those using induction stoves. The classic series, while made from premium quality cast aluminum, is not magnetic, therefore, it is not suitable for induction stovetops. Though our classic line cannot be used on induction stoves, our induction line can be used induction, electric, or gas stoves.
