I've had a glass cooktop for 11 years and just got a cast iron skillet for Christmas. I've used it a few times with care and so far so good. Glad ya'll have mentioned about the canning. I would like to do some of that but will think twice since I have the glasstop. Maybe just go to my Moms. Hers is the coil burner style.
PS - I'm in Florida too! Tampa area.

I also have a glass flat top stove, along with my grandmother's cast iron skillets. The salesman warned me against using cast iron, but I was not going to give up on my skillets. I take care not to slide them, but lift them. My stove is almost 8 years old now and I don't have one scratch on it. Use your cast iron skillets with joy, but with care.

I would not insult my cast iron skillets by using it on a glass top stove. I would use them in the oven though, if I had to if that was all I had. Better off building a fire outside!
I know, this sounds extreme, but why buy a glass top when you own cast iron?
Do you cook? Or did you get it for looks?
I don't get the concept.

Didn't anyone consider putting a piece of aluminum foil under the cast iron skillet ? After that it only requires caution not to drop or bang the skillet down.
