Glass broke on electric cooktop

sjhockeyfan325October 28, 2013

The glass broke on our radiant electric cooktop. We are redoing the kitchen in early December, so it's not really a big deal. The question is, the cracks in the glass go across the two front burners, but all 4 burners still work. Is it safe to use the cooktop, safe to use the back two burners, or should we just not use it at all?

I can't exactly answer the safety question, but I can say I used a significantly damaged cooktop for a couple years awaiting my remodel. Boil-overs went "somewhere" and I never had a problem. That said, my cracks and missing chunks weren't over the actual burner itself. I'd use the back burners with no hesitation, and try to avoid things like rice, pasta and milk products in the front if you're a klutz like me and tend to let those things boil over.

Well, they could all spill over into the existing oven/cabinet below and I'd never know the difference (at least until we rip out the existing cabinets!)
