Selecting types of cookware.

The following information will help you choose cookware which will give good performance on glass cooktops.
Check pans for flat bottoms by
using a straight edge.
Pans with rounded, curved,
ridged or warped bottoms are not
recommended. Pan Detection/Sizing
may not work properly with these
types of pans.
Do not place wet pans
on the glass cooktop.
Do not use woks with support
rings on the glass cooktop.
Use flat-bottomed woks
on the glass cooktop.

Stainless Steel:
recommended
Aluminum:
PAN
heavyweight recommended
Good conductivity. Aluminum residue
sometimes appears 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:
recommended
Copper Bottoms:
usable, but not recommended
Pans with copper bottoms may leave
residue appearing as scratches. Remove
any residue immediately after use. Do not
let a pot boil dry. Overheated metal can
bond to the glass cooktop and leave a
permanent stain if it is not removed
immediately.
For Best Results
s
Place only dry pans on the surface
elements. Do not place lids on the
surface elements, particularly wet lids.
s
Do not use woks that have support
rings. This type of wok will not heat on
glass surface elements.
s
Use only a flat-bottomed wok,
available from many popular cookware
manufacturers. The bottom of the wok
should have the same diameter as the
surface element to insure proper
contact.

Porcelain Enamel-Covered Cast Iron:
recommended
As long as the cookware is covered
completely with porcelain enamel, this
cookware is recommended. Caution is
recommended for cast-iron cookware
that is not completely covered with
smooth porcelain enamel, since it may
scratch the glass ceramic cooktop.
Glass-Ceramic/Stoneware:
not recommended
Poor performance. May scratch the
surface.
NOTE: Use pans that match the diameter
of the surface element. Cooking performance
will not be as good if the cookware is either
smaller or larger than the surface element.
s
Some special cooking procedures
require specific cookware such as
pressure cookers, deep-fat fryers, etc.
All cookware must have flat bottoms
that match the size of the surface
elements.
