Gas burners heat either LP gas the pan fight away and change heat settings right away . When you turn the or natural gas . control off , cooking stops right away . Radiant Electric coils Heat travels to the glass surface and then to the cookware , so pans must be fiat on ( Glass Ceramic ) under a glass - the bottom for good cooking results . The glass cooktop stays hot enough to Cooktop ceramic cooktop . continue cooking after it is turned off . Remove the pan from the surface unit if you want cooking to stop . © Induction High frequency Pans must be made of ferrous metals ( metal that attracts a magnet ) .

After turning the control surface , off , the glass cooktop is hot from the heat of the pan , but cooking stops right away . Electric Coil Flattened metal Heats by direct contact with the pan and by heating the air under the pan . For best tubing containing cooking results , use good quality pans . Electric coils are more forgiving of electric resistance warped pans than radiant or solid disks . Heats up quickly but does not change wire suspended heat settings as quickly as gas or induction . Electric coils stay hot enough to over a drip pan . continue cooking for a short time after they are turned off . Solid Disk Solid cast iron Heats by direct contact with the pan , so pans must be flat on the bot _ m for good disk sealed to the cooking results . Heats up and cools down more slowly than electric coils . The cooktop surface , disk stays hot enough to continue cooking after it is turned off . Remove the pan from the solid disk if you want the cooking to stop . 8
