Corning smoothtop electric range

I just moved into a house with an old Corning glass-top electric range. It takes forever to boil water. Does anyone know if there is away to tweak this appliance into performing better?

Re: Corning smoothtop electric range

You MUST use flat bottom pans on three of the four burners, the back right burner is the multi-pan burner and accepts any type pan. You'll notice the other burners have a circle in the center, that is the thermostat that reads the temp of the pan, that burner type needs the flat bottom pan to work correctly. The multi-pan has no thermostat and it will boil water in any pan.

Good luck

Gaggenau 200 Series?

If it is similar to the VE260 model, this induction type of cook top is very old. 22 - 23 years if it came with the home when it was built.
I can only offer basic suggestions of which you already probably know.
These induction type cook tops rely on the pan or skillet to be magnetic like stainless steel. If the bottom of the pan has any buildup of residue, this will dramatically reduce the efficiency of the unit.
If the pans are immaculate, then the electronic elements that produce the magnetic induction to heat the coils must be weak. As old as the unit is, it is probably not feasible to have 3 of the elements repaired....
A new top can be purchased much cheaper. Consult Consumers Reports for unbiased product reviews for your best reviews. As a final suggestion, find someone who is qualified to use an electrical multimeter to read the current on both sides of the power receptacle to ensure that your voltage is 230V. A loose connection on the receptacle can cause the elements to have the same result.
Although I can imagine you have already done everything above, I just wanted to send you what I can offer.

Roden Gas glass stovetop shattered MODEL GC73H

I have come across this occurence twice before.
With glass stove tops the glass is toughened and can generally withstand most temperatures associated with normal cooking situations. This, of course, assumes that there is sufficient space beneath the cooking utensil (saucepan, frying pan, etc) for air to circulate and the build up of heat to dissipate. If this cannot take place heat will build up to the point that the glass - a refractory material will no longer be able to withstand the internal and external forces created by the differences in internal and external temperatures and will thus shatter.
Though this is generally rare, it is known to take place and users are warned. Incidentally, this is the reason the shape of the glass top is the way it is and not the usual square as with other tops, in order for the heat to dissipate more easily.
In short, you should insist to your landlord that you were not misusing the appliance, but through genuine use this somewhat rare event occurred.

Will burner get too hot

Hello Pinewood7. The issue here is concern from what you have heard. Don't worry! All you are doing is boiling water. The system will allow constant heat for what you are doing. Use this as a test. Put your largest pot on the top full of water and set on high. Attach your thermometer to the side and see what happens. I know several people who use these tops for canning with excellent results. My sister in law has had yours for years and not an issue with jams. Hope this helps with your concerns.
