Cookware that definitely transfers heat better?

Is there a brand of cookware that you know for a fact transfers heat better - for example will boil water faster - on an electric stove?

Thanks

Copper is the best commonly available material then aluminum, cast iron and stainless steel in last place.

The copper is why my parents and I have always used Revere Ware.

If you are lucky enough to have vintage Revere Ware hang on to it. Like so many other products on the market, it ain't what it used to be.

We replaced our traditional electric cooktop with an electric induction cooktop. It has a "warp speed" setting that will bring a pot of water to a boil in less than a minute.

Impact boding is a manufacturing process. Heat transfer rate still depends on the material used.
