Well, you can use copper coated pans,stainless steel is proably the best.You can use glass pots, just about anything you would use on an regular electric range. You should check your owners manual if you have one they usually list items that are not compatible with glass tops. Biggest thing with glass tops is to clean them after every use that is critical becauce they do stain easy. And you should not move your pan around a whole lot once its on the top. Does yours have the convection oven in it?
