Test the bottom with a magnet, they should be attracted to each other. The copper coated cookware does not seem to work, it must be forming a "Faraday" cage. – Optionparty Nov 24 '13 at 14:05
I thought induction cookers were outlawed in many/most countries. It's worse than cooking your brains with your cell phone. – Blessed Geek Nov 24 '13 at 14:09
@BlessedGeek care to explain? – MandoMando Nov 24 '13 at 14:51

Your easiest solution may be a cast iron pan. It might however, scratch the glass top. Otherwise stainless steel pans work as well.

Quick and fast rule might be to look for a pan with heavy bottom. Thin pans with non-stick coating may not work as well.
