So I recently noticed this when playing around with my new induction range. First though, I’m not sure if this is specific to induction or also happens on gas or radiant. Haven’t tried it on those elements. I have a feeling the fact that it is induction doesn’t matter here. I think it is the non-stick coating. Looking for answers.
One pan is a SS All Clad d5. The other is an All Clad d5 SS non-stick. The SS bubble pattern is the size of the coil with normal looking bubble sizes. The non-stick begins at the coils and then the LARGE bubbles spread to the entire pan.
The other pictures show the SS 5 seconds after I turned the burner off. It looks how I’d expect it to look. The non-stick after 5 seconds looks the same as when the burner is on. In fact it doesn’t start to change until 20-30 seconds and doesn’t completely stop til about 40 seconds.
Why? I have another 8” non-stick pan that behaves just like this All Clad non stick. It is a CIA brand from years ago.
I can’t understand how and why the non-stick pan reacts so differently when they are cladded in the same material. Appreciate any explanations here. This post is to just learn and satisfy my curiosity. Thanks!
