Halacha - Stove top
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: I'm not familiar with "quartz halogen rings" so I can't give you a clear answer without more information. But, if they are the type that have a smooth glass-like surface then a number of issues are raised. First of all, the glass cannot be kashered for Pesach as the pot touches surfaces to do not reach the temperature necessary for kashering. Even more important is that the stove should not be used on Shabbos. Since the heating element is always covered it cannot be considered its own blech, and one should not cover the cooktop with a standerd blech because the retention of additional heat can cause the glass to crack.
