Cooking with clay tagine on induction

SunshiNe_Sarah | Jul 24, 2012 06:55 PM


I would like to buy a clay tagine for its reputed cooking flavours (vs ceramic or metal). Only problem is, I have an induction stove.

I thought maybe I could use a stainless steel frying pan with a thick base like WMF cromargen as a conversion disk / heating element and put the tagine on it (instead of buying a conversion disk).

Will that work? Though I have read that overheating will spoil the pan, or the overheated pan may spoil the coils in the induction hob.

So if the above is a bad idea, I wonder, can I put water in the pan and use the tagine in a water bath instead?

Appreciate your views and thoughts.
