As induction technology is based on magnetic principles, compatible cookware must have a ferrous (iron-based, magnetic) bottom. Some types of cookware are made of naturally magnetic metals (such as pure iron), while others are rendered magnetic by “sandwiching” a thin layer of a ferrous metal within the base.This layer will be acted upon by the magnetic field of the induction cooktop to distribute heat. Tri-ply, high-quality stainless steel and cast-iron cookware will work with induction cooktops. Copper, glass, and aluminum cookware will not work unless they have a magnetic layer sandwiched in the base. Pots that function optimally with the NuWave PIC Pro Chef tend to be medium to heavy gauge.
The heating surface is located inside the thicker silver ring. The minimum diameter of acceptable cookware is 3 inches. Always place cookware in the
center of heating center. You may use pans measuring up to the total width of the NuWave PIC Pro Chef, which measures 11.4 inches. However, in these
situations, heat will transfer more slowly to the outer edges. Not recommended for pans larger than 11 inches.
Examples of compatible cookware

  •  All NuWave Cookware
  •  Cast iron
  •  Enameled iron and steel
  •  Stainless steel with magnetic base

Non-induction-compatible cookware

  •  Copper
  • Glass
  • Aluminum














An E1 reading typically means that your NuWave PIC Pro Chef does not detect cookware on its surface. This can occur for one of two reasons:

1. The induction coils contained within the NuWave PIC Pro Chef will only work when they are in direct contact with a piece of cookware. To maintain your appliance’s

effectiveness, always ensure that it rests on a flat surface

and that contact is consistent with your cookware.

2. An E1 message may also occur if your chosen cookware is not induction-ready.


If the PIC Pro Chef is locked and E1 appears:

• Simply unlock by pressing both “Prog” and “Low” and then press “Start” again.

• If you press, “Pause/Clear” twice, you will need to restart

the previous program.
