The Scanpan Induction Plus cookware line is especially made for cooking on induction stovetops (though it can be used on a stovetop of any other kind). There are not a lot of other non-stick pans that are induction-ready, let alone made for this technology.
For the quite high price of $299.95 this set includes only 6 pieces: 2 fry pans (8 and 10.25-inch), a saucepan (3.5-quart) with a lid and a Dutch oven (6.5-quart) with a lid. It is enough for basic cooking, but for a bigger meal you might need to get additional pieces.
This set is Tri-ply whole-clad: the aluminum is sandwiched between steel to increase heat transmission, and it goes all through the pan up to the edges. This lets the pan heat up quickly and cooks the food not only from the bottom up, but also through the walls.
