I watched some youtube vids and saw that the induction field is versatile. You can set your temp. exactly so you can slow cook or fry. There is also a program feature for setting different temps during the cook or setting a delay in start time. You can also cook a meal and have it switch to any warming temp. I saw them melt chocolate at 120* and keep it melted for as long as they wanted without burning. The sear setting heats the pan to 575*.
I have the frying pan that came with the induction coils and I have plenty of cast iron pans I can use. Might have to pick up some steel frying pans. or maybe a grill pan. If a magnet sticks to the pan the induction should work.
