Small skillet induction friendly
I am looking for a small skillet. Has to be induction friendly and preferably non-stick. Size... 1 - 2 eggs to top a muffin. B, B & B sells one but is not induction friendly. It is about 3" or so.
Thank you. Also used for blinis
I found a nice 8" nonstick cast aluminum induction ready skillet at TJMaxx. It's a Red Rose England brand. I also got a 10" Berndes of similar construction.
What's the smallest diameter that your induction burner can use? Probably 4 or 5". For a skillet, I think 8" (rim diameter) is the smallest practical size.
Although Politeness has kindly mentioned my Iwachu cast iron omelet pan, I actually prefer using a nonstick induction-capable aluminum pan for eggs and omelets. IME, aluminum pans conduct heat out to the edges much faster.
The pan I usually use is made by Archetun. It is a rivetless design that is great for omelets, and it even looks like a cast iron pan. Unfortunately, Archetun pans seem to be hard to find in the US.
My second choice would be a Debuyer CHOC Induction frying pan. I have one in a larger size and really like it. It is a very simple design with a long and comfortable tubular stainless steel handle.
Another pan to consider might be Swiss Diamond. They now offer many of their pans in induction-capable versions. The model numbers are the same, but with a little "i" stuck on the end.
Hope you find this info helpful.

I use a small non-stick coated "All Clad" skillet about 7".
Expensive, but works fine on my DIVA induction top.
When I first switched to induction a year ago, I carried a magnet with me all the time :) I'm finding these days that more labeling is indicating induction compatible. Just a general comment.
