We do with no problems. We stay away from pots with a rounded bottom as they move on the hot stove.

My local appliance dealer says that the new appliances are designed to last for 10 years. That being said, I've used cast iron on my glass cooktop for at least 9 years almost every day. No problems and I have a variety of pans including a 16 inch cast iron pan and a griddle that uses two burners and the bridge burner. I am moving and have a new GE glass top. I intend to continue using cast iron. Just be careful and don't slide or twist your pans and in my honest opinion you'll be okay.

I use my cast iron on my glass top stove all the time. Just be careful when setting it down. I did smash a hole in a previous glass stove top by slamming frozen chicken down to break it apart.


Not a good idea. :)

I found a cast iron skillet with the grill ridges in it recently. It is coated on the outside with a thick, bright red, porcelain coating so it works great on my ceramic scratching.


Now I'm on the lookout for some regular skillets, coated the same. I found the one I have at a store called "Tuesday Morning".

I just use my cast iron griddle and pans. I made sure there were no rough edges to scratch my cooktop. I've done it for 16 years now. I figured that I bought my stove to use, not to baby, and I was going to get my money's worth from it. I use cast iron pans, I can, I use my pressure cooker, and I've never had one problem.

I have used my cast iron pans on my glass topped stove for 20 years. They cook wonderfully on it.
