most post and pans are safe to use on ceran tops. You CAN NOT use cast iron pots as they will scratch the top. The other important thing is that your pans MUST BE FLAT. Hold them up to the edge of your counter and look to make sure the pan has no gaps or wavyness on the bottom. Ceran stove tops use contact to transfer heat so if the pan is bowed it will not absorb the heat and it will cause the top to overheat and possibly shatter.
