In response to some of what I've read and experienced with induction cooking and cookware, I will say that there are some misunderstandings. There are some glass vessels with a high iron content that will work on an induction cooktop. One of the best pans I've used with induction cooktops are 25 year old Queen cookware I inherited from Mom. It stainless steel inside and outside, but sandwiched between the two layers of stainlees is a core of high carbon steel. Some medium to high end cookwares have a stainless sandwich too, but it's aluminum or copper instead, which will not work.
