Thank you for using Just Answer.
I would not recommend using an electric smooth top range for canning. This is because of the long heating and (often) great deal of spilling that can occur onto the top.
Sugar is very bad when left untreated (cleaned and polished) and allowed to continue to burn into the glass smooth top. It will permanently mark the top.
A gas range would be a much better machine to use for cannning.
