Soon, I will be needing to look for a new kitchen stove. My kitchen is small , and there is some money restrictions, so I will not be getting the dream stove, Can anyone tell me if the glass top stoves or one without burner grates would hold up under canning. I can a lot. The average is about 600 jars of canned foods. That does not even take into account the freezers. I use large heavy pots, pressure cookers and waterbath canners . There are days in the summer that the burners will be on nonstop for 8-10 hours a day 6 days a week.
