In defense of glass cooktops
There has been talk about how glass cooktops are a PIA to deal with, I want to encourage anyone out there considering one.
I had coil before and I would only clean the drip pans under the coils about twice a year. They got so gross so fast that it just wasn't worth it. Nothing under the sun would make them shining silver again anyway so why try. Oh how I hated those coils and that ridiculous baked on ugly mess. EW.
Now with the glass cooktop, part of the after-dinner clean-up ritual is bringing out the ceramic cleaner and razor blade and making it look just like new again. I love it. There is something so gratifying about the work of your hands producting instant sparkling results. To think that all that mess just STAYED there before is pretty icky.
So for anyone wanting ceramic, but afraid of the hassle, I assure you it's wonderful. It only takes a few minutes - and such satisfying results!
