Which kind of pot would be better to use on a halogen cooktop?

A. A shiny stainless steel pot

B. A black cast iron pot

C. It's equally OK to use either as long as you adjust the thickness so that the heat conduction is the same.

I have no idea what a halogen cooktop might be. I suspect it radiates to heat. (halogen bulbs radiate heat, infrared, as well as light) However if you want something to absorb radiation and heat up, make it black, not a reflector.
