Can Cast Iron crack my Induction cooktop?

Broodizt | Mar 19, 201511:37 PM

Hi all,
I just wrote a very long post about whether i'm at risk for a cast iron skillet cracking my Thermadore induction glass cooktop. I wrote an ungodly long post (about 20 min ago which I cannot find now) explaining everything about how I am new to cast iron and fell in love with it only to have a cast iron #9 skillet go missing after ordering it from EBAY. Was broken hearted but went looking for another skillet the same size on ETSY when the sellers (two different ones) said cast iron is not recommended for glass cooktops because it can scratch and then crack your glass top induction cooktop. But I remember reading here that many cooks use cast iron skillets on their induction cooktop with no problem. I'm just worried. Should I continue to try to reorder my lost #9 skillet, or forget about using cast iron on my cooktop? I would be crushed if I couldn't use CI because the food I cooked on my new #7 griswold was so awesome I couldn't believe it.
Shellie, very confused :-)
