Smooth top stoves: cast iron alternatives?

I recently got a smooth top stove and the instructions advise against using cast iron. I considered getting a porcelain enameled cast iron pan from Le Creuset, but the instructions even advised against any stoneware. This thing is so finicky! How am I supposed to sear my steaks? I need something for extremely high heat applications that won't damage my stove.
