So, since we have to go with electric, my dh wants a ceramic top stove. On my previous poll, some of you didn't like the ceramic top.
So, I'd like you to take this poll and give me more input, if you would, please, since we are limited to electric. Thanks!!
good luck making your decision. i'm sure you'll be happy to have something new whichever way you go.

One tip I was give when I bought it was to be sure that the actual stove top is made by "Ceran." Evidentally it is the best.
I love mine, and will never go back.
I used to let my other electric burners get way too dirty but I keep this one pretty clean and it looks a lot sleeker. HTH!
IF you don't use cast iron to cook, I suggest the ceramic top. It's really great, but there's no way you can use cast iron on it.
LOL Cookware is a whole 'nother discussion!
Old thread that I discovered because I just hooked up an old Jenn-Air solid element stove-top, and it's awesome!
I've always been about gas stoves, hated electric coils and electric smooth top stoves. But these solid elements have a thermostat button in the middle of the burner that contacts the pan and conducts the heat to the pan very efficiently (depending on pan bottom surface contact). They initially heat at full power until the thermostat kicks in to regulate, and you don't loose all the heat around the sides of the pan like with a gas flame. I believe they actually heat my porcelain/cast iron saute pan faster than the LP gas stove I'm used to.
Funny thing that I just now have discovered this type of stove now that they don't make them anymore. I guess they still have a large following in Europe where they are more appreciated.
The stove top is a Jenn-Air CCS446
