New Flat Top Electric Stove

JuniorBalloon | Jan 19, 2011 07:57 AM

I'm going to buy a new stove to replace an old electric coil stove. I have opted for a flat top electric, don't have gas (damn) and the cost of the induction stoves is too high. I have done some reading and have a few questions. From what I've read cleaning flat tops can be problematic. Food spills and then gets cooked on hard. Have you had this and what was your solution? I have also read that controlling heat can be an issue, especially low heat. And lastly, the time it takes to get up to temp. It seems this was a bigger problem in older models, but not so much any more. Anyone experience this?
