Any negative points to the electric stoves with flat surfaces
Need to be be conscious of the cleaning between cooking times. More difficult to repair the surface elements. Possible brakage. Pots and pans must have flat bottoms!
So far 3 teens in our house have not broken ours!
Advantages, no rings or pans to clean or worry about. Can get a lot of variations of element sizes for cooking with different size pots. Spills are contained on top of the range and do not run down inside. Cooktop around the element does not get hot like coils element tops do.http://www.applianceaid.com/cerantop.html
