Was out on the lake fishing when wife called from campsite, she was in a panic.

The fold back glass top shattered sounding like a gun firing, her words, while she was cooking.

I removed top of stove and cleaned all glass and removed all hardware pertaining to glass top.
She said DO NOT REPLACE THE GLASS TOP.

Yes it was folded all the way back she claims.

My DW had a Pyrex measuring pitcher explode when she picked it up. It was empty and at room temperture. Tempered glass can be a strange animal.

Deep scratches can do that to some glass.

Mine is 3.5 years old now and I have not had a problem with it. It was DW's choice to get it and I would not have paid the extra amount, but it made her happy.

I have a friend who works in the residential glass business and yes tempered glass can just release and shatter. It's not a common occurrence, but it does happen.

I have a glass top for my stove in our new-to-us trailer - thanks for the heads-up!

Found out later she had large chilli pot on back burner.
I'm certain this directed a lot of heat towards glass top.....big pots up front.

Tempered glass is glass with the outside layer in tension.

Imagine a very tight shrink-wrap around the glass.

It's hard to break, but once the outside layer tension is damaged anywhere, the tension causes the whole thing to burst, usually into many small pieces.
