Ceramic cookware is not recommended for use on a glass-top stove. Ceramic cookware is susceptible to cracking or breaking during the sudden temperature fluctuations generated by the heating cycle. Scratches result from the movement of rough or unfinished bases on the surface of the stove top.
A smooth-top cooking surface requires different care and cleaning practices than a traditional gas or electric stove top. Non-abrasive products applied with a sponge or cloth minimize the risk of surface scratching during cleaning. Residue on the bottom of cookware leaves rings and other marks on the glass-top surface that can be difficult to remove. Quick cleaning of spills, particularly sugary substances, reduces the staining of the cooking surface.
