I read about those, but I can't remember what they are called (and darn, I wanted to look into getting one when this one eventually kicks the bucket
). Something to do with magnets? It was really cool...
I have a smooth top range, and I love it compared to the coil top ranges (would rather have a gas range with sealed burners, but we have an all electric house). I have a razor blade type window scraper that I use to scrape up any messes when it spills and the eye is hot, or anything that gets burned on, and then it usually just washes up easily with the cleanser

My book recommended using those pans instead of regular cast iron, but I had never heard of it before- like encaspulated, fully coated cast iron or something... I can't remember that either. I need to go to bed!
