We got a glass top stove as a house warming present. My wife has been wanting one for a while.
I assumed they were just as good/bad as a regular electric stove and didn't object. After all, it was going to be easier to clean, apparently, so what's not to love?
Actually it sucks. Things I hate about it:
1. It's picky about what kind of pots and pans you have
2. If you clean a pan, you have to be very careful to make sure it's dry before putting it on the "burner".
3. The temperature seems to be even less easy to control than a regular electric burner.
4. Despite the major selling point, the "easy to clean" surface, it's actually a pain to clean and there are already various permanent stains on it.
I think when I have the money I'll try to get a gas hook-up and get a proper gas cooker, like nature intended.
