Selecting types of cookware.

The following information will help you choose cookware which will give good performance on glass cooktops.

Stainless Steel:



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:

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 Covered Cast Iron:

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, as it may
