Slightly OT: Induction hob top

I have a Bosch induction hob, with a black Schott Ceran glass top. Sometimes, I need to 'swirl' a pot on the hob, to move stuff around in the pot stop it sticking to the bottom. At the moment I use an old tea-towel over the hob and under the pot to stop the hob getting scratched, but I doubt that it's really necessary. How resistant is the glass to scratching?

Have had one for seven years, no special care taken and there are no significant scratches. I guess it all depends on how fastidious one is though.

No harm in doing what you're doing though :)

Why not get some wooden spoons/spatulas? Is it to save washing up?

It's mainly when I'm cooking soups or gravy, to stop a 'crust' forming on the bottom of the pan and burning. In a sense, yes it's to save washing up, as without the crust on the bottom, a rinse under the tap and a wipe with a washing-up cloth cleans it. If you're suggesting the wooden spatulas to stir the pan's contents, I'm not sure it would help.
I don't claim any expertise at cooking - I just do very basic stuff - my wife died in April - perhaps I should go to cookery classes.

Washing-up cloth? I've tried for years in vain to woo SWMBO off these bacteria-infested things. A plastic-bristled *brush* is the correct object.

Ah, sorry to hear that. My sympathy.

Commiserations. I too was thrown into cookery with little warning. Hil didn't die but I still had to start doing the cooking (well she did die, several times in fact, but she came back to life albeit in somewhat disabled form and certainly couldn't cook.)
I got nowhere with cookery books. Weird ingredients, faddy ideas, and too much fiddling around with silly details. In the end I just proceeded by trial and error. The results were abysmal to start with but now I can turn my hand to most types of basic (good honest!) food and the quality is pretty good.

Thank you Harry. Yes, it is truly awful. She died rather suddenly two months before our ruby wedding. A silent, massive and inoperable uterine carcinoma. Five days from the first symptoms to her dying. I'm not over it yet, by a long way.

Shit, though to be honest I think the the sudden brickwall is better for the living than years of long slow decline.
A stroke got my Mother 18 years ago, it didn't take her straight away. Five days in hospital more or less paralised from the neck down. She died a couple of days before my son was born. Some what of a emotional roller coaster.
Mum had done all the domestic stuff, but Dad took the challange on and won until he became too frail. Old age eventually got him, at 94.

It hurts, it will always hurt. (<wipes eyes> thinking of Mum). Rise to the challange as my Dad did. You have the support of the group, Dad was never on the internet.

I suspect the first rule is to avoid cookbooks written by celebrity chefs (a contradiction in terms if ever I heard one).

£6 for a used copy on Amazon. What does "not torrentable" mean?
