Always use cookware.

glass. The glass is scratch-resistant,
not scratchproof.
How to Set

and will disappear in a short time.
NOTE: On models with light colored glass
cooktops, it is normal for the cooking zones to
change color when hot or cooling down. This is
temporary and will disappear as glass cools to
room temperature.
