Hi, we are about to put a new kitchen in, which includes moving to an induction hob. I've been reading numerous threads on this site to help me choose new pieces of cookware, it's a fantastic site. One thing I'm struggling with, and I'm hoping people can help with, is small roasting pans which are induction compatible.
Note I'm based in the UK.
For a number of years I've been using Ikea Koncis roasting tins. They are perhaps a little thin for hob use, but I've managed fine. Unfortunately they aren't flat based so don't think they will work well on induction for browning, deglazing and making gravy/sauces. The great thing about them I find is the range of sizes, I have at least one of each: 26x20cm; 34x24cm; 40x32cm. I only find myself using the largest for roast potatoes at the moment. There's only two of us and a 3 year old!
Why can't I seem to find any decent smaller roasting pans which are induction compatible? I have found a really good deal on a 3 ply 37x27.5 KitchenAid roaster which I'm probably going to buy. I'd love to find something similar around the smallest Ikea Koncis tin, for doing things like roast sausage and onion, or smaller pork belly joints. I have looked at the Demeyere Industry roaster at 32x26.5cm, so a bit smaller than the KitchenAid, however it's not far off three times the price of the slightly larger KitchenAid given the deal I have seen.
I'm only looking at stainless steel. I definitely don't want anything nonstick. Any suggestions? Or do small sizes not exist?!
