I have begun to experiment with using an induction burner and so far, I have been extremely impressed with the performance. So far, I have two pans - a stainless steel saucepan with a steamer insert and a cast iron square grill pan. The stainless steel pan works fine with no issues and even the steamer insert works great. The cast iron square grill pan works great too but it always causes an error code on the induction burner which causes the unit to shut off. I am able to turn it back on again but after about 15 or 20 seconds, the same error and shutdown occurs. I assume this built-in overheat protection is built into many or perhaps all induction burners as I hear talk about it occuring on several brands other than mine (Aroma brand).
For those of you who have a single induction countertop cooktop, do you get overheat errors when using cast iron and if so, how do you prevent them ? I have the perception that I need to turn it on high to grill food but maybe that's not necessary. I have 5 heat settings and I use "5" on a scale of 1-5. I know cast iron retains heat a lot better than stainless steel - perhaps that's why my overheat protection is coming on. Any thoughts and any ideas about what I could do different to try to prevent those errors based upon your experience ?
