I recently bought a glass stove top what is the best cookware to use. It's hard to see the bottom of the pots and pans. Please help. Thank you to all.

I have done lots of research on this, answer is top grade stainless steel, no copper bottoms or hard anadized . No hardcoat enamel or aluminum.

I've had a glass top stove for years and have no idea what Shelbelle is talking about unless she has glass top confused with induction.

My CE hardcoat enamel works wonderfully.

I have a glass top stove and wanted new pots last year. I did lots of internet research amd talked to lots of reps from places like All Clad, Kitchen Aid, Farberware, etc. Was told by all that good quality stainless is the best for glass top stoves, followed by hard anodized.

I have a modge podge variety of pans. As long as they are flat almost anything will work fine. I don't copper pans tho, but every other kind.

Cheese with that whine?

What do you mean by "its hard to see the bottom of pots & pan"? I just turn them ever & have a good look.

I'm on my third glass top range. I have used all types of cookware. Just make sure the bottom isn't warped, it should make good contact. But its not like induction.

Why no copper bottoms?

I have used every pan imaginable on my glass top stove, and in 10 years I haven't had a problem with any of them, including cast iron and an old copper bottom pan that my dh had before I came along.

i have a white glass top for 4 years and have always used CE hard anodized or cast iron. have had no problems with either.the only problem when you first start cooking on a glass top is to make sure the bottoms of the pans are clean otherwise spots occur on the cook top but i use ASTONISH CLEANER and everything cleans up fine

I use anykind of pan also. Even cast iron. You just can't drag it around the stove. You need to be sure to lift if off. I have no scratches.

i have circulon infinite. bought a 10 pc set off of amazon last sept. they look and work as they did brand new plus they are dishwasher safe. this set of circulon has a stainless steel base added to the hard anodized cookware. this set can be used on glass top and induction ranges along with regular all electric and gas top ranges. this month throughout the holidays cookware will be going on sale. i got my set at a fantastic price last sept.
