Just takes practice and using smallest burner appropriate to pan. also should use medium weight FLAT pans. put a straight edge on bottom of pan before using or buying. I have seen pans that are $200 each that I don't feel are flat enough. much of gourmet cookware is designed to work on gas tops. The surface also needs to be cleaned every time it is used. I have a 6 month old white top that still looks brand new, lot of work though.

Can visionware go in oven


The short answer is YES!

In the 1990's Corning produced a series of Visions cookware, brown amber and cranberry colored glass-ceramic dishes and casseroles, that had the same basic properties of its white Pyroceram cookware. Visions cookware could go directly from freezer to hot oven to stove-top to the microwave oven to table to fridge to the broiler to the dishwasher, etc. Extreme temperature changes did not affect the very durable cookware, While many folks mistake Visions cookware for Pyrex bake-ware, they are not the same. Visions cookware was never issued in the forms (square pans, rectangle baking pans, loaf pans, pie pans, etc that clear glass Pyrex baking pans had been produced in for decades. In any case, Visions glass-ceramic cookware could go direct from the freezer to the hot oven - there would be NO DAMAGE to the cookware in such a practice. Visions glass-ceramic cookware also has markings to indicate usage. The majority of Visions cookware were of the "stove pot" design - stove top was intended from the start. However it is practical to let the food defrost first, or adjust the cooking time in order to create a better thoroughly cooked dish.

Yes, Visions cookware can be used in the oven! One caveat is that the pot lids are Pyrex which means that the pot lids can not be placed under the broiler (who does that anyway?), or under direct heat, or while hot on wet surfaces. The pot lids were meant to be pot lids - just like other Pyrex glass pot lids on most cookware.

Yes, Visions cookware can be used in the oven!

How do you clean the burnt on food inside the base of a crock pot with a removable crock?


I have the exact same problem! I cooked soup that slowly boiled over the edge and burned inside the base. I know you can't soak it and I don't want to ruin it. Help!

Westinghouse freestyle 521 stove ceramic top.elements wont turn down no matter where switch is. burns food. Have used different size pans etc,


there is a problem with either the elements or the controls,i doubt it is the elements as its unlikely that all of them are faulty at once.the control knobs or control panel is more likely the problem.

OVEN WANT HEAT PROPERLY FOOD DOSEN'T GET DONE


It could be that your lower element is burnt out or ready to burn out. They last 3-5 years depending how much you use your stove.
Disconnect POWER to the stove, remove the screws holding the lower element to the back of the inside of the stove, pull out carefully and remove the 2 screws holding the wires on. Check the element with an ohm meter or take it to a store that sells replacements ($25) and they may check it for you.

Whenever I cook cream soups in my stainless steel pots, they burn on the bottom. I watch them very closely and just have the heat on medium, but they always seem to burn. I recently bought a glass pot to...


I'm assuming this is an electric stove, since that's what the picure shows. Most electric stoves turn the heating element on and off to regulate the temperature. On high the element is on almost all the time, on low it's off most of the time. The problem is that when it's on, it's on at full power, and sometimes this is enough to scorch things like milk based creme soups.

You can do two things:

First, try using a double boiler. This will put water in the lower pan and help keep the heat lower than with a regular pan. You could also try to find a pan with a very thick bottom, and try that. It might work better.

The inner right front element will not heat up on our Kenmore Elite ceramic stove top. The middle and outer elements on the right front work fine. Why is this happening?


inner element burned out. Either burner needs replacing or control switch is bad. Take out burner and see if coil has a break in it. IF not, then switch is bad. I cannot see your repyl due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks
