...cast iron pans on ceramic or glass stovetops? I was about to saute using a cast iron pan (which would then go into a 400 degree oven) but Liz says she remembers not to use it on our stovetop. Why is that?

The only reason I'm aware of is that you may scratch the surface of your range. With that said, I use my cast iron on our glass top range all the time.

Seems to me I could do a lot to keep from scratching the cook top and still saute effectively.
