Le Creuset Cookware on Viking Induction Range

joliec | May 17, 201207:20 AM

We purchased the VISC5304BSS Viking Induction range several months ago and have been shopping around for compatible cookware ever since!

Many retail shops and sites say that cast iron cookware, specifically Le Creuset will work fine on Induction. However while reading the VIKING use and care guide one night, I saw "CAUTION: To avoid risk of property damage, DO NOTuse cast iron cookware. Castiron retains heat and may result in damage to the range"

(page 15)

Viking's own web site: "Stainless steel, enamel and cast iron are usually induction friendly, while copper, glass, and aluminum are not."

I called Viking's customer service about using LC on the range but in an effort to avoid liability, she said I cannot use any cast iron on induction to limit the risk of breaking the cooktop.

This is very concerning...has anyone had any experience with cast iron cookware on induction ranges in general? If anyone has any experience with Viking induction cooktops/ranges and use of cast iron cookware, I would love to hear it!!
