Hunting for the Best Pots and Pans for Glass Top Stoves - Suggestions?
I upgraded my old gas stove to a sleek, new glass top one. It's great and all, but I've heard that not all pots and pans are suitable for this type of stove. Apparently, some can scratch the surface, not heat evenly, or just not work as well on glass.
I'm in the market for a new set of pots and pans that will be friendly to my glass top stove, and I thought this would be a great place to gather some advice.
What types of cookware have you found to be the best for glass top stoves? Are there specific materials that I should be looking for? I've heard about flat-bottomed pots and pans, but does the material (like aluminum, stainless steel, or cast iron) make a big difference?
Also, if any of you have run into problems with certain types of cookware on your glass top stove, I'd love to hear about it so I can steer clear.
And one last thing - any tips on how to maintain and clean these pots and pans to keep them (and the stove) in good shape for as long as possible?
Thanks so much for any advice or experiences you can share!
