Cast Iron on Glass Stove Top?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created August 20, 2012 at 1:54 PM

I would really like to use my cast iron pans to cook with, but we just got a new stove in our apartment and were told by the guy who delivered and installed our stove to NEVER use cast iron on a glass top stove. Does anyone know anything about this? I miss my cast iron pans and dutch oven!

Thanks Jjtitus... I'll have to check that out.

I'll try the suggested product though. :)

They make special cleaner for glass stovetops, works great! It's abrasive with a fine grit, takes black rings and cooked on food/char right off!

I use my castiron on my glasstop stove. It creates this very hard to remove black ring around the burner you are using. This was already there when we started renting this place and my landlord said that using this rust remover works kinda, but it didn't really get the job done. I've tried MANY different products to remove it and maybe will stumble upon one that truly works.

That being said, no cracks, nothing too hot... just black rings.

I have been using cast iron on my glass stove top ever since we got the new stove. I guess I never read the instructions as I never would have bought it if it said no cast iron. I think the only problem is that it makes the stove top very hard to get all the way clean and shiny new again. That doesn't bother me at all.

You can use it in the oven

When we got our glass too stove in the direction it also said not to use cast iron. The only thing I can figure is it causes touch heat and can crack the top. Also when ever you cover a pan/pit with the lid never put the lid down completely on the top because it will basically vacuum to the top and crack it also.

I've been using Lodge cast iron cookware on my glass stovetop for 3 years now and it hasn't been a problem... I take care not to scrape it around a lot, and obviously don't slam it down, but other than that it's just like any other pan.

There might be a little bit more dullness where the burners are due to small scratches, but using some of the fine grit glass stovetop cleaner shines it up nicely again! If you're really worried about it, you could just us enamel coated cast iron.
