We've just moved, and the new place is not and cannot be set up with gas for cooking. The current stove is a standard 30" slide-in, and already I hate it. It has one of those glass tops, and I have identified several reasons I don't like it. 1. It's too flat, so a pan with even a slight rounding will not cook evenly, including my cast iron and most of my carbon steel. 2. There is no clear indication of whether a burner is hot or not, and because it's all just one black surface with circles drawn on it, it's much too easy to burn yourself. 3. Similarly, it's too easy to put a pot on the surface and have it not be quite on the burner. 4. The surface is going to scratch as a result of tossing skillets and using very heavy pots. What I'm hoping is that people can tell me about types of electric rangetops that would be more suitable to someone used to passably vigorous cooking on a gas range.
