Induction cookware questions

15 years ago

So I know I need pans with a flat magnetic bottom for my induction cooktop. I'm just a little confused, though because the pan that came with my range and that is marked as induction-compatible has an aluminum core. The outside part is stainless, though. My question is, will my copper-core stainless pans work then? Or is it just that these will work OK but they are not as good as having an all magnetic material bottom?

Second question:

I want a wok and I have Christmas money. Someone either here or in appliances mentioned that there was a wok made for induction units that had a flat base and looked flat / with straight sides on the outside but was curved properly inside. I've done some googling and no luck finding such a thing. Anyone have any ideas?
