This sensor does not allow the burner to maintain an even temperature high enough for certain canners (those without flat bottoms, or otherwise not recommended by the manufacturer of the stove) to work safely. Unfortunately this is not something the salesmen will tell the customer when they are buying the stove and probably many of them are unaware of this. If can can confirm with your stove’s maker or the store where you bought it that a flat-bottomed canner is okay, there here’s a great one, made of stainless steel, so it should last a lifetime – it would also make a great pot to cook applesauce. Another problem is that canners that exceed the burner diameter by more than 1 inch can trap and reflect heat to surfaces of the stove that are not intended to get that hot, and thus crack the stove top. Scratching of the stove surface can occur if the canner is slid or pulled across the cooktop.If that option is built in, and the burner under a canner shuts off during the process time, then the product will be underprocessed and cannot be salvaged as a canned food.
The process time must be continuous at the intended temperature, or microorganisms may survive. The pot used as a canner must also be large enough to have lots of water boiling freely around the jars, and at least 1 inch over the tops of jars. In summary, some smooth cooktop manufacturers say do not can on them, while others who say it is okay add stipulations on the diameter of the canner compared to the diameter of the burner. It can heat a canner in no time, and folds up neatly for storage. This can cause the smoothtop to crack, cause failure of the heating elements, and can cause damage to the backguard.

The safety switch circuit can easily handle more than the 240 degrees that the water will achieve. I hope this puts to bed the concern about reflected heat tripping the safety sensor and producing questionable canning results. I got a response from the company so thought it might help others out. The larger and heavier the pan is, the longer it will take your water to come to a boil. There is a built-in limiter which allows the element to cycle on and off to keep the glass from getting too hot and causing damage to the cooktop. Also, higher wattage elements are being used for faster boil times. This is because boiling water temperatures (even under pressure) are not harmful to the cooktop surfaces surrounding the surface units. This is because boiling water temperatures(even under pressure) are not harmful to the cooktop surfaces surrounding the surface elements. Be sure the canner fits over the center of the surface element. When canning, use recipes and procedures from reputable sources. Remember that canning is a process that generates large amounts of steam.
This is because the temperature needed to boil water is not harmful to the surfaces surrounding the cooktop zones. The temperature limiter protects the glass cooktop from getting too hot. Yes the heat does cycle on and off but that doesn’t prevent me from maintaining a full rolling boil in a large kettle. The stove manufacturer told they that on a glass/ceramic stove there is a sensor so that the heat (in the glass) cannot go above a certain point thus breaking the top. By fluctuating the temperature the bacteria is not eliminated in the canning process. The damage can range from discoloration of white tops to actual burner damage to cracking of the glass tops to fusion of the metal to the glass top. This often happens with large, heavy filled canners, so people need to be careful. As mentioned above, many of these cooktops have automatic cut-offs on their burners when heat in the glass gets excessive. This is more of a problem with pots that do not have flat bottoms. Also, if the pressure drops quickly, most likely liquid and maybe even food will be lost from the jar (it will spill over from the area of higher pressure inside the jar to the lower pressure now in the canner around the jar). Many canners do not have flat enough bottoms to work well on a smooth cooktop to be able to maintain a full boil over the tops of the jars. If the canner is too small, then it starts boiling faster than expected and the total required heat the jars receive in the canner even before the process time begins can be too short. But there are enough stories of cracked stovetops to suggest that regardless, an alternative might be prudent, unless you’re sure it is compatible with your stove!
And, of course you can use it for camping and tailgating parties!
Two 1300 watt burners – if you want to stay indoors – two of these, side by side will work!
Two 1000 watt or greater burners, side by side – since you can move them around it is both a plus and a negative – you can position them to be stable, but perhaps not a close together as the double unit. Durable enamel-painted steel case and aluminized cooking surface for easy cleaning. One alone would not produce enough heat to get and keep a canner boiling hard. Also includes scores of simply written recipes that even beginners can handle (smoked fish, turkey-tamale pie, chicken croquettes, more. The heat generated by the canning cookware overheats the elements and the smoothtop of the range. The safety switch will engage sooner if there is air space between the glass and cooking pot because the heat being generated by the element itself will not be transferred into the utensil and food. I have used pots to heat oil for deep frying on my smooth top range at temperatures of 350 to 370 degrees. It is recommended not to use your surface elements continually all day for canning. There are smooth tops on the market today with a variety of element dimensions such as 9 to 12 inches.

You can use large flat bottom canners on it because the boiling water temp will not harm the surrounding cooktop surface. There is a caution to not use these larger pans for frying of boiling anything other than water. Such temperatures could eventually harm the glass cooktop surfaces. If your cooktop or its location does not allow the canner to be centered on the surface element, use smaller-diameter pots for good canning results. Do not use canners with flanged or rippled bottoms(often fount in enamelware) because they don’t make enough contact with the surface elements and take a long time to boil water. To prevent burns from steam or heat, use caution when canning. However, do not use large diameter canners, pots or pans for anything other than boiling water. Use caution while canning, to prevent burns from steam or heat. Using a rack with at least 1/2 to 1 inch clearance on the bottom and putting large screw lids around the jars when processing is a cinch. Do not exceed more than 1″ than the burner size, also check the watts on each burner. In conclusion, for canning 1/2 or 1 pint jars on the stove top is very doable; quart jars should be canned on a powerful gas burner. I haven’t used their pressure cooker, but their pots are very well made flat-bottom stainless cookware and work great on glass-top stoves.
Williams Sonoma 4 Burner Gas Grill by williams-sonoma.com
A rear infrared burner generates intense heat for juicy, tender rotisserie-roasted meats. Stainless-steel cooking grates heat up quickly, are easy to clean and release foods beautifully. Rolling casters (including two locking) for easy portability in your outdoor space. After each use, wipe down grease splatters on grill exterior. To clean the grill grates, while the grill is still hot, dip a brush with brass bristles in hot water and scrub to remove charred residue. Because of the caster issue, it’s difficult to roll in a straight line; with the open back, any rain that falls on it when uncovered, accumulates in the lower cabinet.Moisture also fills the thermometer housing making it sometimes difficult to read. The rotisserie works quite well and is so far the best part of this grill. I have made hatch chillis sliders hot dogs sword fish steaks. chickens with the rotisserie works great. However the location of its gas control almost guarantees that you will ignite it by mistake with the burner cover closed. Two-door cabinet provides storage for grilling accessories and keeps propane tank concealed. It’s lighter weight than expected, mostly open in the back and was delivered with one of its casters not aligned properly and missing several screws needed for one of the side shelf.

Lightweight construction also makes any lift on the side shelves problematic. It cooks well, except for the side burner, which burns extremely hot and seems to have only one speed. It is good to have a side burner on a smaller grill, as this does. At a minimum, this will discolor the cover as well as being a safety issue. The grates are a nice heavy gauge stainless steel that should last for years.
