Tiny chip in induction cooktop--safe?

twocoasts | Nov 14, 202007:57 AM     2

For others who use induction cooktops: I put a tiny chip in the glass of my Thermador induction cooktop (dropped the metal range hood filter on it). I'm wondering if it's safe to use the cooktop. The chip is about 4 or 5 mm long, and so shallow I can't feel it with my fingertip. But if I run the edge of my fingernail over it, I can feel it. If you didn't know to look for it, you'd think it's dust mote. The chip is within the ring of a burner. I know tempered glass in general can survive very small chips/scratches without failing catastrophically. For example, I'm still driving my '97 Mazda with a windshield scratch it's had for the last ten years. But I also gather a glass cooktop is a different beast. I'll ask Thermador customer support, but am interested in your experience as well. If you've ever had a similar-size chip in your induction cooktop, have you been able to continue using the cooktop with no bad outcome? What about the chipped burner specifically?
