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 want to know if there is something made to use on glasstop ranges to protect them from scratching when you use an iron griddle.

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 stovetop......no 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.

Check on a cast iron website; but I don't think it's recommended. (06/22/2010)

You can use any kind of pan on a glass top. My lady cooks all the time with a cast iron pan on our glass top stove. (06/23/2010)

Cast iron is not suppose to be used on ceramic top stoves along with copper coated pans, aluminum, and porcelain coated cookware. Stainless steel is recommended. (06/23/2010)

People do it, but the manufacturer says, no. You might get away with it, but you might crack your stove top as my son has done twice. This is why I don't like those stove tops. My son says the best thing to do is hit them with a sledge hammer right before the warranty goes out, but he was kidding of course. (06/24/2010)

I certainly wouldn't take the risk and I would far rather have cast iron cookware than have a glass top stove top. ;-) (06/24/2010)

Using Cast Iron on a Ceramic Cooktop

I have been using my iron skillets on my glass top stove for over 9 years. Also, I use my stainless steel pots and pans. I still like the iron pans better for fixing hash browns, eggs, and bacon.

Can I use cast iron cookware on my ceramic cook top?

Answers:

Using Cast Iron on a Ceramic Cooktop

No, it will make clean up a very big job. I tried it, and it took a long time to clean the stove. I got an electric hot plate to use with cast iron. I use the cast iron to bake with. It does a very good job. (09/10/2009)

I don't see why not. My lady cooks all the time with a cast iron frying pan on our glass top stove with no harmful results. One thing we have to clean is the over spill. (09/10/2009)

Using Cast Iron on a Ceramic Cooktop

I have used a cast iron frying pan on my ceramic cook top for the past three and a half years with no problems at all. I wouldn't use any other kind of frying pan. (09/13/2009)

Using Cast Iron on a Ceramic Cooktop

I use mine all the time, with no problems. Clean-up is no harder than with my regular cookware. You just have to be careful not to drop the pan/skillet since it is so heavy. And you have to pick it up and not slide it to another burner or it may scratch the cook-top. (09/14/2009)

I use both iron fry pans and large griddle with no problems. (09/15/2009)

Using Cast Iron on a Ceramic Cooktop

I used metal pans on my ceramic cook top and it ruined and cracked it. I had to get another one but got a regular cook-top, the above is too hard to keep clean. (11/28/2009)

Using Cast Iron on a Ceramic Cooktop

I love my white ceramic stove top. It's easy and cheap to keep clean. Good old Comet, Ajax, or your favorite scratch-free powder bleach. Use a wet dish rag or sponge, wet soiled area, shake cleanser on those same areas, work around to a paste, let it sit, or work on it until it is clean! Anything left behind can be removed with a razor blade. (01/31/2010)
