If you have ever wondered whether you can cook teppanyaki-style foods on an induction hob, the answer is: yes, you can, very successfully, as long as you invest in the right griddle or grill plate.

The problem with induction cooking is that not all pots and pans are suitable for use on an induction hob and you are limited by the type of cookware you can use.

Best griddles & teppanyaki grill plates for induction hob reviewed

Non-magnetic cookware, such as copper, glass, aluminum, or ceramic, is incompatible with induction hobs unless the pots contain additional layers of magnetic material in the base.

After researching the various griddles and grill plates that are compatible with the induction hob, my favorite has to be the Cuisinart MCP45-25NS Skillet. This grill plate has a flat non-stick surface with excellent heat distribution to make teppanyaki grilling easy and fast.

It is not the only option, though! Check out my list of the favorite griddle and grill plates that you can use on an induction stove.

Induction cooking buying guide

The only problem with an induction cooktop is that, as opposed to these portable teppanyaki hotplates, not all grill plates are suitable for use on an induction hob, and you are limited by the type of cookware you can use.

Non-magnetic cookware, such as copper, glass, aluminum, or ceramic, is incompatible with induction hobs unless the pots contain additional layers of magnetic material in the base.

Here’s what to look for when you’re in the market for a griddle or teppanyaki grill plate for your induction hob:

Material

Be sure that it has a magnetic component. They should be made from cast iron, stainless steel or anodized aluminum.

These days, most grill plates and griddles are made with induction hobs in mind so it shouldn’t be difficult to find one to suit your needs.

Make sure you avoid non-magnetic cookware, such as copper, glass, aluminum, or ceramic, as they are incompatible with induction hobs unless the pots contain additional layers of magnetic material in the base.

Size

Bigger grill plates are great for larger families so you can cook a whole meal on one plate. A professional size griddle is around 20 inches by 10.5 inches.

Most of the larger grills are designed to fit over two burners, so look for a grill that will fit on your stove top.

Dishwasher safe

For ease of use, and cleaning, it’s always great to have a griddle that’s dishwasher safe.

Some of the cast iron griddles are not suitable for the dishwasher, so always check the instructions before making your final purchase.

Chantal vs Staub

When it comes to brands, Chantal is sometimes compared with Staub cookware. They are both superior products and both offer exceptional performance in the kitchen.

The reason we did not include a Staub grill pan in our review is that its very high price tag puts it out of reach for most buyers.

FAQs

Now I’m sure you still have a few questions about cooking with griddle and grill plates on induction cooktops.

What exactly is induction cooking?

Induction cooking uses electric currents to directly heat pots and pans through magnetic induction.

Unlike traditional gas or electric cooking methods, induction heats the cooking vessel almost instantly.
Induction cooking is becoming more and more popular, and with good reason.

It is more efficient than traditional cooking methods with an almost 70% reduction in energy consumption – 90% of the energy produced is channeled into the pan itself.

As a result, food cooks faster and uses less power. Induction cooking is also safer, as there is no open flame or element to ignite fumes or cause burns.

What pots are suitable for induction cooking?

The only problem with induction cooking is that not all pots and pans are suitable for use on an induction hob and you are limited by the type of cookware you can use.

Non-magnetic cookware, such as copper, glass, aluminum, or ceramic, is incompatible with induction hobs unless the pots contain additional layers of magnetic material in the base.

So, when you are looking for a teppanyaki grill plate to use on an induction hob, you need to be sure that it has a magnetic component.

However, these days, most grill plates and griddles are made with induction hobs in mind and are made from cast iron, stainless steel or anodized aluminum, all of which are compatible with induction hobs.

Can you use a grill pan on an induction cooktop?

Yes you can use any magnetic cookware including cast iron and stainless steel.

Non-magnetic cookware, such as copper, glass, aluminum, or ceramic, is incompatible with induction hobs unless the pots contain additional layers of magnetic material in the base.

Do cast iron griddles work on induction?

Yes they do, but a poor quality cast iron pan could scratch your cooktop. So a high quality cast iron pan with a smooth base, or enameled cast iron pan is recommended.

What are the advantages of induction cooking?

Although the appliances might cost more in the initial purchase, you will save on energy bills during the appliance’s lifetime. Most induction appliances use up to 70% less energy than gas or electric cooking.

Heat is also instant, so food cooks faster, and it is much safer than having an open flame or hot element. The surface of the induction cooker doesn’t get as hot as gas or a stovetop as soon as the pan is removed.

What are the disadvantages of induction cooking?

Good quality induction appliances can be more expensive than traditional stovetops. And you may have to buy new cookware that’s compatible with the induction stove.

What is the difference between a flat grill plate and a ridged grill plate?

The flat grill top offers a large surface are to cook things like eggs, flapjacks, and fish.

While the ridged grill is perfect for getting sear lines on hamburgers, steaks and sausages.

Takeaway

Each of the grill plates that I’ve listed here is compatible with the induction hob and each of them has different features and different strengths.

To help you with your decision on which to buy, you need to decide which features are most important to you and how much you are prepared to spend on a grill for your induction hob.
