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?

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
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.
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.

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.
