I have an old Revere Ware set that has lived through electric coil stoves, flat top stoves, camp stoves and gas stoves. I have no problems with those "pots". I am having trouble with my older(5 years) non stick skillets sliding all over my glass top stove. They may have become warped from using them on the camp stove for the last few months.


Anyway, what non stick skillets would you recommend for a glass top electric stove?

Heavy ones that have lots of surface that is touching the glass top. If the bottoms are warped in any way, they won't heat properly. The cheap ones will warp in no time flat.

Non stick is fine. Pans slide while cooking which is dangerous.

I have a Cuisinart skillet which is holding up really well and heavy enough it doesn't slide on the glass top stove.

Ceramic - absolutely awesome. Mine is cheap Alpine brand, bought in an ethnic store probably 5 years ago and still looks like new.
Vesuvio is a great brand for ceramic pans. My son has one and loves it. Nothing stick to it!
MUST use on low-medium heat. White is best to keep it clean.

I suspect that your skillet is a bit warped, that's why it slides.
If the bottom is really flat, it won't slide.

Note: I don't use Tefal. It's not healthy and while Tefal ensure that all their pans are PFOA free, not all manufacturers can guarantee this. (Asian made?)
In addition to this, heating Teflon above 500 F can cause the Teflon to degrade and release toxic chemicals. More toxic when scratched.

I used to by the metal utensil/dishwasher safe Calphalon but moved to local restaurant supply pans. They come with padded and insulated handles or plain. Inexpensive, heavy duty.

By far the best non-stick skillets I have ever owned are Ecolution. They sit flat on glass top stoves, and the non-stick finish seems indestructible, as long as you use wood or plastic tools. They are also not expensive.

The only time I've had pans slide on the glass top stove is when there is water between the pan and the burner. Make sure your pans are bone dry on the outside before you use them on a glass top stove.

For the first six months or so... or are you hoping to find something that lasts?
