Will the cooktop work if the pot has a (maybe 1/8") lip around the bottom?
DW's got a one pot meal maker she uses 2-3 times a week at home, no problem on our old fashioned electric coil stovetop. Wondering if it'll work on the induction cooktop we're planning to get for the RV.

The pan has to sit ABSOLUTELY FLAT on the surface.

What's it made out of? Only iron based pot/pans will work. Some stainless to if they are magnetic. Aluminum will not.

It will work if it is only 1/8 of an inch on my NuWave unit.

Here's a pretty straightforward article that will provide some answers: click here.

This is a paragraph you really need to know though:

You Need the Right Cookware
Magnetic—or more accurately, induction-capable—cookware is needed for induction to work. If a magnet strongly sticks to the bottom of a pot, it will work with an induction cooktop. Some stainless steel cookware is induction-capable, and some isn’t.

Sounds like a simple test to me. Good luck!
