Any pan that works on a regular stove works on a glass top stove.

The only time you need to use a particular type of pan is for induction cook tops. They work with magnetic fields so a pan that a magnet won't stick to won't work.

Can you use granite ware on glass cooktops?

Manufacturers typically advise not to, because the direct heat from the glass cooktop can cause the top, porcelain layer of the granite ware to melt. I wouldn't risk it. +++ You won't melt porcelain at cooking temperatures - start at 1000ºC - but certainly risk cracking it.

How to Choose the Right Cake Pans?

If you’re baking a cake, the directions will generally tell you what size pan you should use, but will not tell you the material of the baking pan that you should use. Most cake pans are available in metal or glass varieties, although there are some silicone pans available. Depending on the recipe, the choice between metal or glass cake pans can have a significant impact on the final product. Glass cake pans allow you to see your cake while it bakes. Not only this, but glass is a poor conductor of heat. This means that it will take longer for a glass pan to heat up. However, glass can also get hotter and retain heat longer than metal. It’s a common misconception that home ovens cook food primarily through convection and conduction. Instead, the main factor that contributes to the cooking of food is radiant heat. Radiant heat is the light given off directly from the heating element. Glass cake pans can allow more radiant heat to enter the cooking vessel, making cooking times less. Metal pans, on the other hand, are shiny and reflect radiant heat, making a cake cook slower than a glass pan. Most cake recipes are formulated for metal pans. If you are using a glass pan, check your cake for doneness a few minutes before the instructions tell you to do so since a glass pan will allow your cake to cook faster. Cake pans can also be used in savory applications. Metal pans can react with acidic ingredients like tomatoes or vinegar and cause your food to have metallic tastes. These recipes are better suited for baking in a glass cake pan. Metal pans can also be used to help facilitate the browning of foods because they reflect radiant heat. For example, a roast chicken will brown more and have crunchier skin if the bird is roasted in a highly reflective, metal pan. A glass pan will, however, make the bottom of whatever you’re cooking crustier, since glass can get very hot and retain heat for a long time. When you’re cooking, always be aware of the kitchen equipment that you are using. It may not seem like a big deal to interchange glass and metal cake pans, but doing so can result in a dramatic difference in the outcome of the final product.

Can you put a glass pan in an oven?

No, absolutely not. If you put glass in the oven, it will crack and turn brown. It will ruin the pan, the food, and the oven. NEVER PUT GLASS IN THE OVEN. * * * * * * * * * * I don't know how old this post is, but actually, you CAN use glass such as Pyrex or Corning. I use a gas oven and that's all i use. I no longer have metal pans. Just check the "User Guide" that comes with your dish/pan. If it says it's safe to use in oven, you're fine. ************** It can. My mom used even a safe to use in oven glass pot and it exploded.
