    I had to get pots too, nothing with aluminum on the bottom can be used on the glass stove tops. frustrating. also, Ceramabryte or how ever it's spelled cleans them well.

    I have had a white glass top stove for 11 years and cooked 3 meals a day on it, I have canned on it, used all kind of pots on it with no problem. I love it would not want any other kind. I clean it and the bottom of the pans with Bar Keepers Friend each time I use it. It does not scratch. My stove looks new. I get the cleaner at Lowes sometimes you can find it at WM. The cleaner is vey inexpensive.

    I had a real nice glass cook top stove. I got rid of the stove and kept the pans. The pans have to be perfectly flat on the bottom or they just don't work. The stove cuts out before pop corn is done popping or before water is boiling no matter what pot you use.

    What is a glass stove? Or is it a electric flat and it is called glass? Just wondering. I think I would like it better than this new black stove and refrigerator. The frig is ok but the stove is a horrid thing to have to clean, each piece or air even sticks to it. ugh...congrats on the glass stove. Would love to see a picture of that.

I've been using T Fal pans I got from QVC about 35 years ago when they first came out. they are still in perfect condition. I don't know about frying because while I eat fried food out, I never make it at home. Water boils fast, at least on my 3 samples.
    Have you tried popping corn on yours?

    No, I use the microwave, but if I remember will get some popping corn to see. You said yours "cut out"? You mean it turned itself off? That would be a problem.

    This is really strange. I've never heard of a stove that "cuts out". Mine would just keep on truckin'. What brand is it?

    i have a white glass top. When i bought mine they said a dark halo might eventually form around most used burners. When i have burned on stuff i use a single edge razor knife then use baking soda and a mr. Clean sponge or equivalent, as they are pricy, to finish the job. Works great. I use whatever pans i had. Moisten your sponge and make a paste of the baking soda. It is non abrasive.

    Two glass top stoves broken, first, son was steaming a cowboy hat,ha, using a porcelin (sp) tea kettle, fused to top and as it cooled the top cracked. Second one broke when using corningware pan boiling eggs, again broke when pan fused to top & broke when cooling. Both these were used with medium to low heat. (I always used bleach to keep my tops white), Third was a glass top with burners above the glass top, and it lasted longest. All these were top of the line units. Loved to cook on them but I would be very cautious as to the pans I use.

    I sprinkle baking soda on top of the black marks & then lay a dish towel soaked in super hot soapy water on top. Let it sit for 10 min or so and wipe up. Don't scrub it just wipe it off. If needed use another towel to wash the soda off. Works for me. I got a bottle of stove top cleaner when I bought it but the smell was so bad I looked for another way to clean it & found the baking soda method on Pinterest.

    I was always a little afraid of my Mother's gas stove. I used to have an electric stove with elements. Pots used to boil over and after a while the pans underneath started to rust. I hated it. I love my ceramic top stove. It cleans up so nicely and I love cooking on it. I mostly use my Le Creuset pots which do a great job for me.
    Besides my family, my pets are the most important things to me. I have had birds, a dog or cats since I was about 8 years old. The cruelest thing you can do to me is take my animals away.

    I agree that the Calphalon pans are best - on any stovetop. The old Teflon pans are not that healthy for us to use, due to the flaking off.

    I don't know if you do any canning, but if you do, please check to see if you can use your new glass top stove for canning. My sister didn't know that her glass top stove was not tempered for canning and it cracked. Replacing the glass top cost her around $500. Now, she does her canning outdoors.
