Are any of you cooking in glass skillets?

I like the idea of cooking in glass (though it seems a little risky shatter-wise.) I can't seem to find many new borosilicate or quartz glass pans, they all seem to be the 70s era Pyrex flameware / corning glass.

Are any of you cooking regularly on the stove with glass?

I just upgraded my stainless steel tea kettle to hand-blown glass and an IR range.

Ah, in my head cooking with lab glass would be inert and next-level. Hadn't considered the stick-factor. There goes that idea. (I still like the idea.) Maybe for soups and stews and watery-things where sticking isn't an issue it would work best.

Nickel and chromium in hair.

If you were to take a small 24oz bottle of tomato sauce and put it on the stove in your new SS pan for 2 hours, you can extract upwards of 3mg nickel. The FDA limit is 0.1mg/L where dermatitis can kick in around 1mg. The avg person gets 69-162mcg/d with an upper limit set at 1mg/d. (Ni was voted allergen of the yr by the American Contact Dermatitis Society.)

Ugh... I had a few pieces of that gawdawful Corning Visions cookware way back when. Food would stick to it like crazy, and it was a major bitch to clean.

Glass in oven, SS on stovetop.
