Cookware for flat top range.

It is a glass ceramic with the element underneath.

Would I benefit more from SS vs copper vs Aluminum in the flat top or is copper the best overall regardless of heat source?

Cookware for flat top range.

Hey All!

Just moved into a new house that has a electric flat top stove. I have basically lived with hand-me-down cookware and I am looking to get some new quality stuff. I cook for a family of 3 about 4or5 times a week for dinner.

I have never used a flat top stove. I have read and heard that it does not work well with certain cookware. I have heard or read about an equal amount of good/bad about using cast iron on flat top.

I would really like to have a few pieces of quality copper/copper cored cookware and maybe a cast iron skillet and griddle.

What should I avoid? Is using cast iron that big of a problem? Any recommendations for something specific?

Thanks!
