I currently have a gas stove and would like to replace it. I am considerring replacing it with electric...not because I like electric better, but because of the easy to clean glass top. My sister told me that there are glass-top gas ranges out there. Does anyone know what brands carry them?

Thanks,

Anna

I do recall hearing the marketing phrase "Gas on Glass" referring to a glass top gas range but I'm afraid I don't recall which brand it was for. You can see a Frigidaire gas slide-in range with glass top at the following link:

If you have cats or small children, DO NOT get a glass top, they take too long to cool down and many a vet can tell you of the horrors of having to put down the family pet because her paws were burned beyond repair. Same goes with children, they dont know it is hot until its too late and when you have to make that trip to the emergency room after scraping your childs hand off the glass, you will wish you never saw that thing. Stick with the gas range, but if cleaning is a problem you can get a maytag or jennair or GE with removeable sealed burners that are a dream to clean.

I have the glass cooktop. You do have to use a flat razor to scrape the food particles off and then they sell a polishing wax to shine it. My wife is a messy cook and I would rather have this than the other kinds.

As for the kids. I have 2 and I taught them to stay away from the stove/oven. Electric or gas they aren't allowed by it. The only things we set on there are stuff we are cooking. We don't get into the habit of setting things on there.

As for the cats walking on it. Cats were not meant to be walking on the kitchen cupboards or the cooktop. A popcan with about 10 pennies thrown near them will scare them enough to keep them from doing it again.

Good luck,

Devildog

I find a squirt gun just as effective and less disruptive to the household (plus a bit more fun to use). :)
