Using an Aluminum Espresso Maker on a Ceramic Stovetop

I just got an aluminum stove top espresso maker. In the instructions it says that it cannot be used on a ceramic glass stove. What will happen if I use it on a glass top stove?

It's my understanding between the heat and the potential for moisture that it can cause a suctioning that will cause the cook top to implode.

I hope the place where you purchased it will take it back and return your money. I wouldn't risk using it. I am curious if this info was on the outside of the box? If not, you have very good grounds (no pun intended) to force the store to take it back because no caution/warning on the packaging!

Glass breaks at a certain temp. If they tell you not to, you really shouldn't. You'll void both warranties if you do.
