Cookware for Radiant Glass Cooktop
The following information will help you choose cookware which will give good performance on
glass cooktops.
Stainless Steel:
recommended
Aluminum:
heavy weight recommended
Good conductivity. Aluminum residues
sometimes appear as scratches on the
cooktop but can be removed if cleaned
immediately.
Because of its low melting point,
thin weight aluminum should not be used.
Copper
Bottom:
recommended
Copper may leave residues which can
appear as scratches. The residues can be
removed, as long as the cooktop is cleaned
immediately. However, do not let these pots
boil dry. Overheated metal can bond to glass
cooktops. An overheated copper bottom pot
will leave a residue that will permanently
stain the cooktop if not removed immediately.
Porcelain Enamel on Steel:
not recommended
Heating empty pans can cause permanent
damage to cooktop glass. The enamel can
melt and bond to the ceramic cooktop.
Glass-ceramic:
not recommended
Poor performance. Will scratch the surface.
Stonewa
re:
not recommended
Poor performance. May scratch the surface.
Cast Iron:
not recommended--unless
designed
specifically for glass cooktops
Poor conductivity and slow to absorb heat.
Will scratch the cooktop surface.
Porcelain Enamel on Cast Iron:
recommended
if bottom of pan is coated
Check pans for flat
bottoms by using a
straight edge.
Pans with rounded,
curved, ridged or
warped bottoms are
not recommended.
NOTE: Follow all cookware manufacturer's recommendations when using any type of cookware on the ceramic cooktop.
For Best Results
[] Place only dry pans on the surface elements. Do not
place lids on the surface elements, particularly wet lids.
[] Do not use woks that have support rings. This type of
wok will not heat on glass surface elements.
[] We recommend that you use only a fiat-bottomed
wok. They are available at your local retail store. The
bottom of the wok should have the same diameter as
the surface element to ensure proper contact.
[] Some special cooking procedures require specific
cookware such as pressure cookers, deep-fat fryers,
etc. All cookware must have fiat bottoms and be the
correct size.
[] Avoid allowing foods to boil dry as some cookware
may stick to the cooking surface, causing permanent
damage to the cooktop.
Do not place wet pans on the
glass cooktop.
