Dear Eric: Could you please comment on using cast-
Iron Pot on ceramictop stove.
Do you need special care or cleaning materials?
I like cast iron and I have reduced the size to avoid them.
While looking for a new electric stove, I also found that there are few coil burners available to work for me as I want the controller in front.
I am short and in a wheelchair.
Dear Monique: Ceramics (glass)
On many new electric furnaces, the top is a common feature.

"It's hard, but you're more likely to scrape the ceramic top with them.
You must be careful to cast burrs or rough edges that may be found at the bottom
"Iron pot," said Eric Reiter, a sales professional at the randford Trail Appliances.
However, Reiter says that if you put the pan in place, put it there, and don't shake it during cooking, you should be able to avoid potential scratches.
Also, check the bottom of the actoriron pans.
If the bottom of some people is very rough, please avoid using them on the ceramic surface, but keep them for other purposes, such as the outside of the barbecue.
That said, I checked the bottom of each of my actors

As for finding a suitable stove, the most important thing is to have a controller in front
An effective way to narrow the possibilities is to go to the websites of retailers that sell them.
Trail Appliances, Sears, Home Depot and other products allow you to search and view products from a wide range of manufacturers.
Once you have a feel for what direction to take, go to the store, talk to the sales staff and check out potential candidates.

Stir-fry with steamed rice and you will have a good meal.
If you don't like pork, you can replace it with the same weight of boneless, skinless chicken breast and cut it into thin strips.
Because cooking is too fast, do all the shredding, slicing, and measurements before you start stirring --frying.
Before you start cooking, also make sure your pan and cooking oil are properly warmed up before adding food.
If not, the ingredients like meat are likely to be steam, not burnt.
Finally, remember that you are excited.
Fry, so be sure to move the ingredients regularly so that each element touches the hot surface of the pan and cooks evenly.
