Canning on Glass Stovetops and Canners for Glass and Ceramic Stoves
- updated for 2012

http://www.pickyourown.org/cannings4glasstop.htm

If you have a glass or ceramic stovetop, you may have heard that you should use a flat-bottomed canner, but you have been unable to find one! Or, you may have heard that you are not supposed to can on a glass or ceramic stove top. Here's what I've found out from the manufacturers: --- CONTINUED at LINK, above ---

Can a GE smooth top range be used for canning with a pressure cooker? Is there a weight limit?
http://community.geappliances.com/t5/Cooking-Discussions/Can-a-GE-smooth-top-range-be-used-for-canning-with-a-pressure/td-p/2765

. . . . With radiant surfaces, pots that extend beyond one inch of the cooking element's trim ring are generally not recommended for most surface cooking. However, when canning with a water-bath or pressure canner, larger diameter pots may be used. This is because boiling water temperatures, even under pressure, are not harmful to cooktop surfaces surrounding the surface units. Please remember not to use large diameter canners or other large diameter pots for frying or boiling foods other than water.

Here are some additional tips to observe in canning:

Be sure the canner fits over the center of the surface unit.
Flat bottomed canners must be used.
When canning, use recipes and procedures from reputable sources. These are available from canning jar manufacturers and county extension offices.
Remember that canning is a process that generates large amounts of steam and heat. Use extreme caution.
Also, the top is tested to withstand a load of up to 50 pounds, so there is no problem using a canner.

Range - Using a Pressure Cooker on an Induction Cooktop
http://www.geappliances.com/search/google/infobase/10000885.htm

Several different cooktop manufacturers have made pressure cookers to operate on induction cooktops. It is best to check with gourmet shops for recommendations. Try the magnet test (a magnet must stick and hold to the bottom of the pan) on any pressure cooker in question. The pressure cooker must be 10" or less in diameter.
