Serious and slightly strange question:
I recently had a pretty extensive flood, and had to replace, among many other things, my ceramic stovetop (radiant electric) with an induction range.
Now, the strange part: I was thinking, with my science-y mind (as it were), of using a cast iron pan or griddle to be able to heat, for example, glass cookware on my induction cooktop. My sinister plot was to heat up the iron item in question with the glass item on top, thus heating the glass item by conduction. Is this silly, dangerous, wrong, amoral, or more strange than is worthy?
