    Sherin,

    I use a glass hob and have been using it for the past 2 years. cleaning them is easy, though i am sure there will be scratches, prone to overflowing of milk, or any other liquid(my kids explore). and i also find the plates chip off faster in some brands..

    it looks great on a granite counter..

    Hi Sherin,

    I've been using Prestige Glasstop 3 burner stove for over 2 years now (without auto ignition).
    Cleaning is really simple. If you use some steel scrubber or any abrasive material, scratches are sure. Just sprinkle 50-50 water, vinegar and clean with a cloth. The glasstop will sparkle. :)

    My mother has also been using Prestige glasstop 2 burner stove for over 2 years but with auto ignition model. She has faced problems with the auto ignition model. Now auto ignition is not at all functioning and the service person said it might be very difficult to fix it. So I suggest you to go in for a manual ignition (lighting with lighter) instead of auto ignition.

    Shanvy and Pavithra,

    Thanks for your prompt replies. But after hearing few reviews from my friends and others have decided to go in for a SS 4 burner instead of a glasstop. I dont belong to the category who do cooking leisurely so feel glass top will not be the model convenient for me.
