Need new stove - smooth tops don't allow using canners

Janet Sarault | Oct 17, 2004 05:55 PM

I am shopping for a new stove. I want a stainless steel one with a smooth top. The smooth top ones supposedly won't allow you to use something as heavy as a canner. I use a cold pack canner for tomatoes. A salesman at Sears said there is a canner you can order for such use, but he didn't know anything about it. (That was helpful!) Anyway, does anyone out there know about a stove with a smooth top that allows use of a canner, OR anything about purchasing a canner that works on the smooth top stove? I would appreciate any information before I just go out and buy a stove.

Thanks for your help.
