Small indention in glass top caused by porcelain tea pot left to cook dry.

We accidentally left the porcelain teapot dry out on the glass top stove and now it has a small 1/2 inch diameter and 1/16 inch depth place where teapot sat in the middle of the burner. Is there a repair for this problem? Thank you in advance for your consideration. Jim and Londa

No standard solution I know of. I understand that the bottom of the pot now has a "bulge" which keeps the pot from sitting flat -- is this correct?

You could try banging the bulge back down with a rubber hammer. There is a risk of cracking the porcelain, but probably worth the risk, since you probably don't want to use it as it is.

Is it okay to use glass whistler tea kettle on ceramic stove top range


I've seen mixed results across the internet on this one. From personal experience, for some reason, my glass teapot left some sort of stain on my ceramic stovetop. It also took longer to heat. I then went out and bought a simple metal one and have been pretty satisfied. If cosmetics are a concern, it's not too difficult a step to pour the water into your teapot after the fact, right?

What is a teapot for one?


Teapots for one are exactly that - they are teapots that are very small and so make only enough tea for one person (although usually at least 2 cups).

Hi, my husband bought me your KAMENSTEIN WORLD OF MOTION SERIES ANIMATED HORSE CAROUSEL many years ago. I did not keep the box or manual and now I want to ask can you e-Mail me a download or one I can...


I cannot loacte an actual manual but....The Kamenstein Carousel teapot was part of the MKI versions of teapots Kamenstein released in the mid-2000s. The teapots came in a range of colors, from blue to red, and they had a small carousel on the top. As the water boils the carousel spins around, bringing an element of whimsy to your tea time. The teapots are all metal and can be used on any type of stove top.
Instructions

    • 1 Fill the Kamenstein Carousel teapot with water just below the sprout.
    • 2 Place the Kamenstein Carousel teapot on the stove and set the heat to "Medium."
    • 3 Allow the water to come to a boil and remove the Kamenstein Carousel teapot from the stove.
    • 4 Pour the hot water into a cup over a tea bag.

Can glass kettle be used on glass hot top stove?


No you should not use a glass kettle or glass type pots on a ceran top stove. Always use metal flat bottom kettle and pots. When buying a metal kettle make sure that there is no gap between the bottom of the kettle and the surface of the ceran top. Some metal kettles have an indentation on the bottom. This does not work well on the ceran top.
Hope this helps.

Back burner caught fire


If the water has been dried up, it was most likely the drip pans. Water is non flammable, sorry i couldn't help myself. If water was the problem there would be sparks and buzzing noises first.

Replaceing glass top on a stove


The top can be replaced but it is expensive. Your range is less than a year old call a local servicer to see if there may be warranty available to cover this problem it may not cost you anything. Good luck.

Stove top burners on glass stove seem to have a governor on them


My initial attempt at solving the problem was to contact the GE customer service phone line.  When I explained the problem, the representative had no clue how to solve it, and referred me to the service organization.  The representative at the service organization was equally clueless, and suggested scheduling a service call at $100 plus parts and labor.
This is all quite disappointing; these customer and service representatives obviously have no training in solving the simplest of problems.  This is okay if GE's goal is to maximize service revenue.  But, I can tell you I would be very unhappy to have a technician visit my house, for $100, only to be told I was using a pot or a pan that was designed incorrectly for a glass cook top.
I solved the problem by going to the web site www.geappliances.com, opening the user manual, and looking under trouble shooting.  The first problem mentioned is exactly as described above.  The problem is inappropriate cooking appliances.  It is not possible to transfer heat efficiently if the pot you're using has a rim or lip on the bottom.  That is, the pot must sit flat on the glass cook-top, it cannot be raised off the cooking surface by a lip that elevated the pot from the surface.  These pots are designed to be used with gas flames, not a glass cook top.
