Le Creuset + Viking induction = no good?

SuShiang | Aug 17, 2007 06:13 AM

Has anyone had any experience using Le Creuset enameled cast iron on Viking induction cooktops? My wife and I bought a Viking countertop unit (so we could decide if we really wanted an induction cooktop in our new kitchen, and specifically because we like the Viking cooktop) and have found that, while it works well with plain cast iron, the pot-recognizer doesn't see our Le Creuset cookware. Viking literature says it should work, Viking customer service says they've heard it doesn't. If anyone has some actual real-world experience with Viking induction cooktops (which may behave differently from the countertop unit) to share, it would be greatly appreciated.

Alternatively, if you have an induction cooktop which works well with Le Creuset, and haven't already said so in a Google-accessible location, I'd appreciate hearing about that as well (ideally, before we start writing inordinately large checks).
