Question about Jenn-Air Expressions AR141 Electric Cooktop
I am trying to make jelly and the jars have to have a hot water bath, completely submerged in boiling water for at least 10 minutes. I have heard that glass tops have a thermostat built in that keeps the top from getting too hot by fluxuating the heat up and down. Without the constant heat the jelly may not be sterilized and the jelly makers say not to use a glass top range. Also they say some ranges have the thermastat and some don't but they also don't take a chance on breaking the top of the stove. Is this correct? Should I not use my cooktop? My other alternative is to use a portable electric burner which will be very inconvient.
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.
