I've also used a small wire cooling rack to prevent sticking. It works like a charm!
I have a glass top electric stove too and I would be worried the wire would scratch the surface. Does yours get scratched from using the wires?

Corning Ware also had a version. Of course theirs weren't clear glass, they were made of Corning Ware to match the rest of your set and also included the wire "star". My Mom loved hers and used it for many, many years, until finally the handle broke from use.

The glass coffee pots were manufactured by Pyrex. I own a 6-cup Pyrex coffee pot and I love it. It has a wire just as you mentioned in your post so the glass doesn't sit directly on the stove burner.
Very smart idea of making a wire out of an old coat hanger so your soup doesn't burn on the bottom of the pot. While we're on the subject of soup, I can't believe the price of canned soups in the grocery stores. I never buy soups and I make all my own.
Here's a photo of my Pyrex Coffee Pot. This should bring back some old nostalgic memories!
