Stainless steel pots/pans on a smooth top stove...

...any reason this would be a bad idea?

I've never opened the stainless steel set of pots and pans we received from our wedding.  Why?  Because my other stuff still works great and I'm strange like that.

Our new house has a flat/smooth top stove (our old one had gas).  Any reason that stainless steel would be problematic on this??

  • Sweet, thanks gals!

    Another question re: stainless steel... do I have to be careful with how hot the pans get?  I swore I read something like that once.

  • This is probably obvious to most people, but I began cooking in our apartment with gas. Something that I still struggle a bit with is how much longer the smooth top takes to change temperature. So I have burned many things to the bottom of our pans...
  • nope. no reason at all. use them :)

  • It's cast iron you need to be careful with.  :-)  SS is fine!

     

    As for it getting too hot?  I'm not sure what the issue is...  If you suck at controlling the heat, like I do, any pan can get too hot and overcook/burn the food.  I'm not sure if that's what you are referring to, though.

    Ah-HA!  Now THAT is what I was thinking of!  Cast iron, not SS.  Good to know! 

    And I hate this stove too.  I miss my gas :(
