I am now contemplating the replacement of my decades-old electric range with a brand new one. With half the burners dead, it seems the time has come.
Anyway, I've been seduced by the idea and aesthetic beauty of a smooth cooktop range. It looks so much 'cleaner'. The only disadvantages I've heard of are that they are hard to clean once they get dirty and that some types of cookware cannot be used, such as cast iron.
Is there anyone out there who has had experience with both and could offer an opinion? Do smooth tops work well or are they slower than coils?
I would respectfully ask that we not have any discussions of gas versus electric ranges. I have no illusions or interests in being a chef; I just want to make my own space more livable.
