Will I be able to use my copper-bottomed Revere Ware on my new glasstop stove?
By Trudy F. from Humboldt, NE
You will be able to use them; however if they're warped, like mine were, you won't get the best heat transfer; and they may rock on the burners. I ended up buying some inexpensive, flat bottom stainless pans, which have held up amazingly well, the twenty dollar set is still going strong thirteen years later.

I have a new glass stove top for the first time. I was warned by others to not cook with copper bottom pots and pans (Revere Ware) on it, since it can damage the glass stove top. Is there any truth to this? Thanks.

I've had no problems cooking with my copper pots and pans on my stove. (01/09/2008)
I have had the Maytag Gemini for 4 years and have always used my Revere copper pots on it with no problem. (01/09/2008)
I've had no problem using copper on my ceramic stove. Do not use cast iron unless smooth bottomed. It will damage the top. (01/10/2008)
Can I use copper bottom pots and pans on my glass top stove? Thanks.

Mine said no copper bottoms. Since I had none I didn't worry about it. You can find out from the manufacturer by emailing them. (05/11/2010)
This link goes to a Whirlpool ceramic stovetop FAQ:
According to this, copper and aluminum are fine, but they recommend not dragging either of these types of cookware across the cooking surface as they tend to scratch the surface. Beyond that, with Whirlpool at least, copper is safe. (05/12/2010)
