    There are so many types of stainless steel stock pot on the market. 304 grade, 430 grade, or 205grade.
    I'm choosing a big stainless steel stock pot to cook meat stew. I will be using it on an induction cooktop.
    Is it correct that one material conduct more heat than another material on induction cooktop? or as long as they are a little magnative, they all have the same cooking speed?
    I'm wondering if the iron content matters the speed.

    Inductions heating heats things because of hysteresis which is a thing

    ......[So, left out any references as to any equipment that Miller Welding Co., might offer that is suitable for such applications!]...."Doh!"....

    Yes, the cable has a cloth sleeve or cover, but it's not really insulation -- the cable itself does not heat up like a traditional heating element, it's the pipe underneath that does.

    No it does not work with DC. A steady magnetic field that is produced in DC cannot be induced into another conductor. You need a changing magnetic field which only comes from AC. Read how transformers work. Its the same principle.
