What kind of cookware should I use with my radiant smooth glass cooktop?
To avoid personal injury or death, disconnect your appliance from its power source before you start any troubleshooting or repair work. Use caution when working inside any appliance.
It is recommended that you use medium to heavy-weight cookware with a flat bottom. A flat bottom pan is important because the heat radiates up through the glass top to the pan. Keeping a flat pan on the cooktop will keep the heat transfer at an appropriate level. Stainless steel, titanium, and heavy-weight aluminum pans are good, and porcelain and enamel pans are good as long as it is a thick porcelain or enamel. Avoid using cast iron pans as they can have a burr that may scratch the glass surface. Also, avoid stoneware and copper pans.
Before using any cookware, you should visually inspect the bottom of it, and maybe run your hand along the bottom to look and feel for any burrs, gouges, or uneven spots that may cause damage to the surface of your cooktop.
If any plastic or porcelain melts onto or hardens on the glass or ceramic cooktop, it usually bonds to it. The only remedy is to replace the top.
