How to Use Cast Iron on Maytag Smooth-Top Range
Cast-iron cookware has been used to prepare food for hundreds of years, as the iron can be heated to -- and maintain -- high temperatures. Because of the high temperature range, cast-iron cookware is often used for searing and frying foods. Most Maytag smooth-top ranges feature a flat glass cooking surface, as opposed to the electric or gas burners. The glass cooktop heats evenly, making it better suited for cooking with cast-iron cookware. However, it is important that you exercise caution when placing cast-iron cookware on the stove as well as when moving the cookware. The weight of the cookware can crack or scratch the glass surface of the Maytag range, which could result in a costly repair bill.
