I have read, multiple times, the understanding stovetop cookware thread as well as all of the Q&A associated with that course and the only clear recommendation was for Mauviel Indoc'Inox which is no longer available.
So, what is the best cookware currently available for induction hobs, from a construction / functionality standpoint, regardless of price?
I need the following (sizes are approximate and my biggest hob is 11"):
1. 11-12 inch fry pan used mostly for eggs (I do not use non-stick) (Demeyere Proline? Cast iron?)
2. 5qt conical sauteuse used primarily for risotto (Demeyere Atlantis?)
3. 2qt conical sauteuse used for hollandaise and similar (De Buyer Prima Matera Copper Induction?)
4. 6-9qt rondeau/saute my go-to pan used for everything from frying fish to making stew (Paderno Grand Gourmet**? Demeyere Atlantis or Apollo? Mauviel M'Cook?)
5. 4qt sauce used primarily for thick soups, sauces, beans, rice, etc (Iittala Tools? AllClad D5? Mauviel M'Cook?)
6. 8qt pasta/chili pot (Paderno Grand Gourmet**?)
**Is Paderno World Cuisine Grand Gourmet the same as Paderno Grand Gourmet?
I realize that none of my suggestions may be ideal but that is all I am familiar with so please offer alternatives. If possible, please support your suggestions with an explanation (either technical or practical)....
Price is no object. In fact, I prefer to pay for beautiful design, if it is also functional, than to save money on something that is equally functional but not beautiful.
I prefer to buy American-made but that is less important than performance.
I prefer welded handles and pouring lips but they are also less important than performance.
Weight is no object.
Although I wash all our cookware by hand, I would like to be able to put them in the dishwasher on occasion.
Note: On my ceramic glass electric cooktop Demeyere performs a bit like cast iron -- retaining heat longer, even when removed from the cooktop -- and I predict it will not be responsive on the induction hob either.
Thanks in advance!
(Does anyone have some old Induc'Inox they want to sell me?)
