Sage, I've used them on the ceramic cook top but you mustn't slide them across the surface or it could scratch the finish.

Yes, maybe it's just too risky. I don't cook much anyway!

"Can you buy "pre-seasoned" cast iron skillets? " I think Lodge is pre-seasoned. It's not that hard seasoning them on your own though. I found this for ya if you're interested, Cast iron pan on glass top ceramic range top? - Cookware - Chowhound. I love that chowhound site.

That's interesting! Someone said the cast iron pans get much hotter than other pans at the same setting. Good to know!

excerpt from above:

Cast iron is incredible. Itís like natureís non-stick surface. I have a 12Ē skillet, a round griddle for tortillas, and a large, rectangular griddle/grill pan, all of which I absolutely baby, adding flavor layer by layer, and avoiding soap, and many times water, at all cost.

So, I was stoked to find this cast iron Dutch oven at a thrift store for $4. All it needed was a little TLC and a round of seasoning, and I knew it would be my new best friend.

So, scour garage sales and your grandparentsí house for all the cast iron you can get your hands on. Donít be afraid of the condition. This stuff is immortal, and anything can be salvaged and recycled. Then, follow these steps to get it into shape, and youíll never reach for Teflon again...
