cooking with cooper on ceramic or glass cooktop

stargirlcat Jul 29, 2009 07:20 AM

I have some new cooper pots - can I use them on a ceramic or glass electric cooktop and I understand I have to remove the varnish with acetone -- is this varnish on just the outside or on the inside, too? Thanks all

    I use my copper pans on my ceramic cooktop daily without issue. though I admit I look forward to someday having a gas cooktop again!

      You must remove the varnish to cook with the copper on any kind of heat source. It's on the copper surface.
