Similarly one may ask, can you use nuwave pans on regular stove?

The cookware provided with induction cookers is usually steel. So, yes, you can use it with conventional stoves. Most of the provided induction cookware is very thin steel and will not retain heat like cast iron and will have hot spots where the gas flame or electric coil is near.

Additionally, can you use regular pots and pans on an induction cooktop? Not all pieces of cookware can be used on induction cooktops and stoves. Since induction technology uses the power of magnetism, the cookware piece itself must be magnetic and have a flat bottom. For this reason, cookware made from aluminum, copper or glass, including Pyrex will not work on its own.

Regarding this, what pans can I use on my nuwave?

Tri-ply, high-quality stainless steel and cast iron cookware are compatible with induction cooktops. Copper, glass and aluminum cookware will not work unless they have a sandwiched magnetic base.

Can you use any pan on a gas stove?

The average household gas stove looks like it can handle quite a bit. While technically any pot or pan can be used on a gas stove, there are certain materials that are better suited for its open flame style of cooking.

Try avoiding cookware with rough bases. While cooking, you can put mats or paper between the cookware and the cooktop to avoid scratching like thin flexible silicone baking mat or parchment paper and it won't catch fire. It will avoid scratches and also soak up the spills.
