I just bought a new house and with it came a Kenmore Elite fridge and smooth top stove/oven. I admit that (the smooth top) it was the first thing I noticed about the kitchen when I walked in but I loved the house so here I am. I've not tried it yet. I dread cooking on the thing really. It doesn't seem to have been taken good care of (the fridge too). I've cleaned the top with the special smooth top cleaner and there is still...stuff...goo...something on one of the burners. I've even tried scraping it with one of those, well, scrapers, they make for these things. I can't use my cast iron on it and I've become incredibly whiny about the entire issue. So I would love to hear from those who have an opinion on smooth tops. I've searched on the board a bit but I just would like a fresh take. I'm seriously considering selling it and buying something else but I'll give it a shot.
