My nephew has a glass cooktop. I just finished wrapping his gift of two Caphalon non-stick skillets, which I thought would be perfectfor him, but now I'm second guessing my choice.
A few months ago there was a thread re someone not liking the oven in their new home. I can't find it now, but do remember the conversation turned towards glass cooktops and appropriate cookware for them. I just don't remember anything else about it! I tried googling and ended up confused. Can someone tell me what or what not to use? We won't be celebrating until the 26th which gives me time to fix it, if needed.

I remember that thread. Some said they didn't like certain pots for the stovetop. I use just about any kind, including cast iron. I just checked my manual and they say that certain ceramics or earthenware, or other glazed utensils may break because of the sudden change in temperature.

When removing pots or pans from the burner, I place it on a rack rather than a cold area of the stovetop.

Maybe others will have different advice for you.

No experience here with cooktops.. so I suggest you do a genreal net search. There might be just the info you want someone out there.. Not too many or as many posting with the holidays.. and I do want you to get your answer...

I use Calphalon. They should be fine.

I have a new glass cooktop. For my regular pans I bought triple ply stainless and for my frying pans non stick Calphalon. Just as long as the bottom is flat, not warped, he will love them.

I have a glasstop as well. I use cast iron and hand me down non-stick. Both work beautifully :)

Thank you, every one so much! He lives a couple of hours away from me and I'd hate for him to get them home and have disaster strike! I strained my brain trying to figure out his gift. I wanted to get him something he needed but would not buy for himself. He's the type of guy that would appreciate it if you just painted a rock and gave it to him, but thought it better to throw in a pair of locking nonstick tongs, a dish drying mat, and a new glass measuring cup. You would not believe the condition of the skillet that he uses...or the measuring cup! The handle is pulling apart from the cup. He claims it works. Funny thing is that he is so particular about other things...like his truck! I guess being a bachelor it doesn't bother him? Such a character! lol
P.S. Ppl this is the "real tree" couch recipient. Pics coming, but, um, don't wait up!

As long as it's just a glass cooktop and not an induction cooktop, that should be fine. I use that kind of cookware on mine and it works just fine.
