Can you use normal saucepans on a ceramic hob?
Pans for ceramic hobs Stone, glass and ceramic pans are not suitable to use on a ceramic hob because they do not conduct heat well. Aluminium, stainless steel and copper pans will work, but they do tend to leave marks on the glass, however because of the easy to wipe surface it should be quick to get rid of.
Do you need special pots for ceramic cooktops?
Induction cooktops require a specific kind of cookware; ceramic cooktops will accept almost all types of cookware but are less energy efficient. Ceramic cooktops perform better when used with flat-bottomed cookware as it increases the amount of the pan that is in contact with the heat and so reduces warm up times.
What type of pan is best for ceramic hob?
To ensure your ceramic hob remains in good condition and easy to clean, we recommend heavy gauge coated aluminium or hard anodized stainless-steel pans with a thick base. You can also use good quality enamel on steel or cast-iron pans, but these may scratch the hob surface.
Can you use any cookware on ceramic cooktop?
Cookware with a stainless steel sandwich base or enamelled cast iron will give you the best results. Never use plastic or aluminium foil dishes on the cooktop. Always lift pots and pans off ceramic cooktops – do not slide, as doing so can scratch the glass. Never cook the food directly on the ceramic glass.
Can you use Tefal pans on ceramic hobs?
Yes, Tefal pans work excellently on induction hobs. Cooking with induction is different from other conventional methods such as gas or electric cooking.
Do ceramic hobs scratch easily?
Ceramic hobs are a unique type of ceramic glass hence their name, which is very expensive to develop with spare parts that are not easy to find. The glass is not scratch resistant making them susceptible to scratches from pans and if cleaned vigorously.
What pots should not be used on a ceramic cooktop?
Stoneware is another cooking material that is known to scratch ceramic stove tops, and it is just a poor cooking material overall. If you like using cast iron, never use pure cast iron cookware on a ceramic hob. If your pure cast iron cookware has a rough spot, then it will damage your glass surface.
What should you not put on a ceramic cooktop?
Do not use cast-iron or other rough-bottomed cookware on ceramic or glass stovetops because they will damage the surface. Skillets and pans with flat bottoms work best on ceramic and glass cooktops. Rounded bottoms will not let the heat distribute as evenly.
Can you use a magic eraser on a ceramic stove top?
Clean magic eraser REALLY works. Tip #15: I have used the razor blade after any ceramic cleaning cream with success. I also use Orange Clean liquid.
Can I use an induction pan on a ceramic hob?
First of all, there is no such thing as an induction pan, however, cookware brands now have pots and pans designed to work on a ceramic hob, the cookware brands contain ferrous metals and have the induction symbols at the bottom to indicate that they can work as induction pans and pots on a ceramic hob.
What pots can you use on a ceramic cooktop?
Stainless steel, titanium, aluminum and copper-bottomed pans are all acceptable. Wipe up any residue or staining immediately after use. Porcelain and enamel pots work well but can melt and stick to the cooktop if allowed to boil dry.
What happens if you use a normal pan on an induction hob?
If a pan with a magnetised base is placed on the hob, the magnetic field causes it to heat up directly. The hob will remain cool, with only some residual heat from the pans. Non-magnetic pans put in the same place will remain cold.
What should you not use on a glass top stove?

- Cast iron or stone cookware. Cast-iron skillets are heavy, and glass stovetops are extremely delicate.
- Heavy pots. Do not drag anything across a smooth top cooktop.

What kind of pans can you not use on a glass top stove?
