Can you put a Greek coffee maker on a glass top new coker
There are essentially two types of Coffee Maker, one where the water is heated by an immersion element (where the water is heated by electricity), and a Boiling Water Coffee maker, where you heat the pot on a stove top element either by gas or electric heat.
(If you hve one of the electric immersion ones, don't do what a famous comedy showed and place the coffee pot on the HOT SURFACE of the cooker.
While the first pot of coffee might get warm, the idea is to heat the water from the inside, then have the coffee brewed by the machine after.
Is there a MODEL or NAME on the BOTTOM of the maker?
Google or search for these things first and get back to this board if that does not help.
If I understand your question (sort of) , are you asking if a Metal pot can be placed on the top of an INDUCTION type cooktop, where the special rings Induce a current of electricity into the bottom of the fry-pan or Stock-type pot to boil water or fry items in oils.
I do not know if there is any special method used in Greece to make coffee. Please provide details, if you were not having a 'glass' cooktop.
After some research, a 'Greek' coffee maker or 'Bricki', is a stainless steel or copper pot used to boil the water and grinds together without any extra filtering.
So, the Original Poster needs to determine what the pot is made from (The type of metal), and the other part is what type of cooker element is underneath the 'glass' part of the stove.
The Test is if you turn on the element, and watch it, does it glow red underneath or not?
If it glows red, then the heating elements are embedded into the glass and the stove functions similar to a regular electric range.
If the 'glass' portion is black and does not glow red without a pot on the top of it, then it is an INDUCTION element, and the Inductor NEEDS a metal pot on top to induce a magnetic field to make the bottom of the pot warm up.
Based on the Size of the Pots shown in pictures, it may be too small to function in your particular cooker. A model of the cooker would help. The label is usually on the door frame to the oven or a logo or name near the contol knobs.
