Can I use Corningware or ceramic cookware on my smooth top range?

I have a Kenmore 30" electric self clean smooth top range. Can I use Corningware or ceramic cookware on it? Will inappropriate cooking vessels damage the cook top?

You can use the Le Creuset cookware on that glass top. The Le Creuset website confirms that it can be used on that type of cooking surface. It is recommended that you lift the cook ware up instead of sliding it across the glass top. That is the only difference.

I was not referring to Corning Ware, I was referring to enamel coated cast iron pots such as the French cookware Le Creuset. Can you use them on this type of ceramic top.

Corningware or ceramic cookware is not recommended for use on a ceramic smooth top range. I provided the cookware guidelines from a typical Kenmore smooth top range in the image below. Ceramic or glass cookware may scratch the cook top and is generally not a good conductor of heat. I do not recommend using this type of cookware on your glass cook top. If you do use this type of cookware on the glass top, be sure not to slide the pots or pans across the surface of the cook top to avoid scratching it. Besides scratching the surface, this type of cookware would not harm the cook top.
