The glass plate of my ceramic stove cracked (Indesit K6C51), and I'm looking to replace the ceramic glass.
(I know about What are some alternatives for a glass stove top replacement?, but somehow the answers were not quite satisfactory.)
The coils you see get very hot, and it seems like the only thing that the glass does is transfer the heat from the coils to the pan.
I have found an original part of around ~$300, which I think is pretty expensive. I'm not very sentimental about the looks of the stove, as long as I can cook on it. So I'm thinking of putting in a (clear) ceramic glass sheet that I know people use for wood stoves such as Robax or Neoceram, which costs me around ~$150.
My question: will this actually work?
My reasoning is that I could put in any heat resistent glass with low heat conduction coefficient (so not the entire plate heats up), but I would like to be sure before I spend money on it.
