Gas stoves have become a preferred choice among people who like to have higher control over the temperature and want affordable options.
In addition, gas stoves are great at heat conduction and distribution (it’s always even) and show quicker responsiveness to temperature changes than electric stoves do. However, people have to be particular about which materials can be used on the gas stoves.
So, if you are wondering, “Can you use glass pots on a gas stove?” we are sharing the information with you in this article!
Can You Use Glass Pots On A Gas Stove?
Yes, some glass pots from specific brands can be used on gas stoves. For instance, Corningware Visions cookware can be used on gas stoves as well as electric stoves.
Some types of glass cookware can also be used in different ovens, including microwave, conventional, and convection ovens.
Why Switch to Glass Pots and What to Look Out For
Some people are worried about the toxic metals in some other forms of pots. Glass pots from most brands can be used on gas cookers but aware that they normally don’t work on induction cookers.
Glass pots will take longer to warm up than metal cookware, but it keeps a steady temperature once it is hot. Do be careful if you buy second-hand glass pots from thrift shops or on eBay, for instance.
Some of the older glassware contained lead, which is dangerous for health. The new glass pots do not contain any though.
