** the old days when you HAD to have glass/Corningware cookware to prevent damaging your cooktop. Is this still true **
The following is from the Amana web site. The other appliance manufacturers have similar recommendations:
What kind of cookware can I use on a glass smoothtop?
We do not recommend using any glass, glass-ceramic, enamel-porcelain coated, or cast iron cookware. Small imperfections on the bottom of such cookware can scratch the smoothtop surface. While the surface is not "scratch-proof", it is highly scratch and impact resistant. With proper cooking utensils and care, it will continue looking good through years of use.
Cookware should have an absolutely flat, smooth bottom.
