Hello,
Thanks for contacting us and for your interest in our GE cooktop model JP256BMBB.

Hello,
Thanks for contacting us and for your interest in our GE cooktop model JP256BMBB.
I have listed the types of cookware used on a radiant smooth glass cooktop below:
Flat Bottom pans are essential for good cooking performance since the bottom of the pan needs to touch the glass for the best heat transfer. Most current brands sold today have flat bottoms. Much older, used cookware and/or thinner cookware will show signs of no longer being flat. Non-flat pans may crack the glass.
Use Medium or Heavy-Weight cookware.
Stainless Steel is highly recommended. A sandwich clad bottom is especially good because it combines the durability and stability of stainless steel with the heat conduction and distribution of aluminum or copper.
Heavy-Weight Aluminum cookware is also recommended. It conducts heat faster than other metals and cooks evenly. Aluminum residue sometimes appears as scratches on the cooktop, but these can be removed if cleaned immediately.
Copper Bottom pans are also good, but they can leave residues on the cooktop that appear as scratches. These can be removed if cleaned immediately, but do not let a copper bottom pan boil dry. An overheated copper pot will leave a residue that will permanently stain the cooktop.
Porcelain/Enamel pans give good performance only if they have a thick, flat bottom. Avoid boiling these pans dry, as porcelain can melt and fuse to the surface.
Glass or Ceramic cookware is not recommended. These pans may scratch the surface. Glass is a poor conductor of heat so cooking times will be longer and they may require constant attention during cooking.
Stoneware is not recommended. It may scratch the surface and will give poor performance.
Cast Iron cookware is not recommended. If the cookware has a burr or rough spot, it will scratch the glass surface. Additionally, it is slow to absorb heat. Once this type of cookware heats up, especially on high heat, it holds an intense amount of heat which is transferred to the cooktop. This can cause the element to shut down as a response to the temperature limiters which indicate surface temperature is too high for cooktop components to handle.
Porcelain Coated Cast Iron cookware is okay as long as the cookware is covered completely with porcelain enamel. Caution is recommended when using cast iron cookware that is not completely covered with smooth porcelain enamel, as it may scratch the glass ceramic cooktop. Additionally, if used at hi heat for a long period it will hold heat as described for plain cast iron and could shut down in response to the temperature limiters which indicate surface temperature is too high for cooktop components to handle.
Carbon Steel cookware is okay as long as the cookware has a flat bottom and is smooth to avoid scratching.
Titanium cookware tested well on ceramic cooktops. Ceramic titanium is a non-stick finish applied to a base metal. We tested one with aluminum as a base metal.
I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
Thanks for checking with us!

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Every description about stove is clear and above all TRUE! Perfect size ,heats up quickly...love it❤️ Recommend to all. August 3, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nice solution to small space We needed a non-standard size cooktop for a small space. The wife wanted the easy-clean ceramic surface and this unit works fine and looks good. My only criticism is the responsiveness factor, for example starting out on high then backing off the heat. It seems to take inordinately long to change temperatures. Maybe it's just a matter of getting used to it and factoring that in to one's cooking...but compared to say a gas cooktop responding like a speedboat, this unit seems more like steering an ocean liner in terms of quick temp adjustments. It seems less responsive than a standard electric cooktop (non-ceramic surface type). April 24, 2015
