Tagine on an Electric Coil Stovetop

cobbljock | Feb 23, 201504:11 PM     4

My sister bought me a tajine for Christmas. She is living in Morocco, so she got it locally, and has given me a number of great-looking recipes for use in it. However, she has been using hers on a gas stovetop, whereas I have an electric coil stovetop. I really want to cook with it, but am worried about it cracking on an electric coil stovetop. Can anyone tell me if I can safely (safely in terms of not having it get ruined) use the tajine on an electric coil stovetop? If I can, is there a maxiumum heat I should use (is "High" too hot)? I've searched the internet for this, but can't seem to get a consensus. Thanks!
