I've started being less careful with the smoothtop I bought -- since it was
used -- and have seen that some use it asa counter top, but since it
scratches so readily (so I've read), I wonder the wisom of doing that. A
lot of time when I'm cooking I lay down a sheet of aluminum foil over it to
lay nasty spoons and small cooking utensils so that I don't have to clean
off the burner - just as I do with my countertops, but I still wonder if
this is a good idea to get into the habit of doing.
Thanks for any further advice.
