Even when I ordered my new stove, I ordered the old coil burners, because my old cast iron is anything but smooth on the bottom, but I'm never giving it up, so not going to risk damaging a ceramic cooktop. We don't even have a vent hood, so yeah, it does require a little better wiping up after cooking, but it's worth it.

I bought a steam cleaner years ago. It's hopeless for bathroom tiles and shower glass doors but it's brilliant for cleaning ovens.

I use the concentrated nozzle and blast the grease. 5 mins of blasting then a wipe over with paper towels and my oven gleams. I've always hated using commercial oven cleaners and I'm too physically challenged during fibro flares to use the elbow grease required for using 'natural' cleaners.

I am like Freyagirl, I clean up after each use and having a glass top stove it's very easy, wouldn't have anything else, plus a self-cleaning oven doesn't hurt either.

David Burke, nice cleaning job.

I really prefer cooking with fire and over the gas range... my brother and my parents have those glass top electric ranges which I guess are great in some ways, they certainly cook more evenly and they are easier to clean, but I really enjoy cooking on them a lot less for whatever reason.

Gas stoves provide 'fire', but my preference is cooking over a campfire! Half the fun is getting a proper bed of coals & making the magic happen. Have loved camp cooking my whole life.

Yep. I love cooking on outdoor fire. Not always an option though.

I was so happy when we put a DIY fire pit in our backyard. We started cooking almost everything over that thing in the summer. It was awesome! Our son even loved it. (Of course, we always have to consider wind direction and the nearby trees, which definitely cuts down on the nights we can actually use it.)

It's no fun cleaning a range hood, but my grandson use to have to clean the fat vats where he worked. He would clean them at the car wash.
