Answer(s)
No, it is only recommends that the pot should only be used in the slow cooker plus the outer bottom is quite rough so it will more than likely damage your induction hob.

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.
