What kind of pans should I use on my glass top stoves?
By Jeanette from Hastings, MN
You can use any material for your pots and pans that have a flat bottom. Bottoms that have a curve to them have a tendency to rock and move on the stove. We use steel and aluminum bottoms. (02/04/2010)
Just be aware that you have to be more careful about matching the size of the pan to the burner. I know on mine, you cannot put a pan more than 1 inch larger on the burner. (02/04/2010)
When I bought mine two years ago the booklet that came with it suggested 18/10 Stainless Steel TriPly-Clad Cookware, so I bought some pieces of Tramontina cookware and have had great success with it. The booklet also cautioned against using glass, or anything enameled, as it could fuse to the top. (02/09/2010)
Can you use Emeril cookware, All-Clad copper, aluminum, and stainless on a glass top stove?
By Jack from York, ME
If you use metal cookware it will make it crack. I did this and had to buy another cook top. Good luck. (12/29/2009)
I used to own a gourmet cookware retail store, so I speak from a great deal of knowledge. The above mentioned cookware that you ask about is all fine. As long as the cookware has a nice flat bottom with no ridges it is fine to use on your glass top stove. Just be careful to not "shuffle" the cookware on the burner. I think it's best that if you have to move a pan around that you actually lift it off the burner to move it. So having said that, I think you can safely use All-Clad, Emeril (which is made by All-Clad) copper and any stainless steel, again, as long as the bottoms are flat and smooth. Hope this helps.

What are the best types of pots and pans to use on the glass top stove?
Anything you want to use, however, curved bottoms have a tendency to move around on the stove top. Or at least that is what I experience on my glass top. (06/26/2009)
