Can I use cast iron type cookware on a glass top stove?
Check on a cast iron website; but I don't think it's recommended. (06/22/2010)
You can use any kind of pan on a glass top. My lady cooks all the time with a cast iron pan on our glass top stove. (06/23/2010)
Cast iron is not suppose to be used on ceramic top stoves along with copper coated pans, aluminum, and porcelain coated cookware. Stainless steel is recommended. (06/23/2010)
People do it, but the manufacturer says, no. You might get away with it, but you might crack your stove top as my son has done twice. This is why I don't like those stove tops. My son says the best thing to do is hit them with a sledge hammer right before the warranty goes out, but he was kidding of course. (06/24/2010)
I certainly wouldn't take the risk and I would far rather have cast iron cookware than have a glass top stove top. ;-) (06/24/2010)
I have been using my iron skillets on my glass top stove for over 9 years. Also, I use my stainless steel pots and pans. I still like the iron pans better for fixing hash browns, eggs, and bacon.

The very uttermost last level of Dante's Inferno has a special place for serious cooks who must forever cook ceaselessly on glass. I absolutely hate mine and cannot get the only thing worth cooking on--gas. I do not use my wonderful collection of 100+ year-old cast iron ware (family heirlooms) because of the damage. Moving soon and will never again live where I cannot get gas. Sob!
