Answer(s)
the other reply is not correct, stainless steel with copper encapsulated bottoms Do NOT WORK.. you can tell if will work by taking a small magnet[ [a fridge magnet will do} with you to the store and ask to veiw products, if magnet sticks to bottom of pan it will work on induction. Try to use smaller dia pans that fit markings on your hob ,abit over is ok but not toomuch as you lose energy, and may interfere with touch controls etc., I have bought similar items from argos ,though not listed as suitable ,have worked perfectly. DON'T Forget Take a magnet. regards from cornwall.chris.

Hi, thank you for your question.

Having looked into your query, I can confirm that the Cookworks 3-Tier Steamer will come provided with an instruction manual which will advise you on how long different types of food will take to steam.
I do apologise but there is no timer on this device to make you aware when your food is cooked.

Thank you for using Q & A.

Hi, thank you for your question.

I have checked this for you and this information is not available. The quantity of persons that this will cater for depends on the many factors i.e adults, children, how much they eat and the type of food being prepared.

Thank you for using Q & A.
