I bought a small electric plate to brew on for use at our condo. It's only big enough to do extract and takes a while to get to a boil. We have a glass top electric and I hate it. One reason is it is too easy to boils stuff over. My wife also would not be happy with nice sticky wort all over the kitchen.
I use it out on the porch where I can just hose it down but if you have a basement area that won't be a problem with spills that might work. No CO worries with electric inside.
