Pacanis, I've never heard of, or seen a professional chef use a glass top, or an electric coil range. I'm sure not a professional, but I wouldn't have anything but a gas flame stove. I had an electric range once, and it nearly drove me bonkers. Good luck on your quest for a new stove.

I have been cooking on electric (not by choice) for 25+ years. I don't hate it any more, but dang, I wish I had a gas stove.

I remember ads from when I was a kid. One showed a grill from the side with gas burners. The flames went up and down. The eggs got flipped. Something else went on the griddle. Then the ad said, "This short order cook would be a long order cook if he had to cook with anything but gas." There was another one about a chef simply refusing to cook if he didn't have gas.

If you are on the market for a new stove, and have enough money you should consider dual-fuel, or whatever the propar term is. Gas top and electric oven. It is the best for both cooking and baking.

My glass/ceramic stove is the best I've ever cooked on. MUCH better than any gas stovce I ever had... and I've had more than I will admit to.

Question: Can you use Le Creuset cookware on a flat-top stove? A friend has offered me the one that was in the house she bought--she has a Jennair with which she won't part <g>.

Yes. I have done so regularly for nearly 15 years. Regular cast iron, too.
